The ‘78 has round exhaust ports. You have several options. Use stock round headpipes and put slip on mufflers of your choice. Google the crap out of the internet for ‘78 pipes ( Jardine, Hooker,Dick’s Cycle West/Racer1, Predator,Winnings, etc.) Build your own from scratch if you have the skills.  Or if you find a nice early model oval pipe 2 into 1 you can gently massage the thinwall  header pipes back into round. I did exactly that with my first header. And these guys might still have this pipe lying around?http://www.loudfastugly.com/exhausts
