Help! Dodge Charger

Hey! I just bought my first classic car is an all original 1971 charger 500. I have a few questions that I know only other classic car owners will know. First off, I'm only 18 so I don't really know what to do to it that's right, The entire exhaust on it is pretty rusted, so I've been looking around but every exhaust I find seems to be some stupid modern sounding crap. I want that nice deep note that its supposed to have, so any ideas where to look?
Second, she has the original 318 motor and it has been freshly rebuilt however, I've been told I can boost the value by installing a larger engine, not that I would do this now of coarse, but I would like advice on types and sizes I know the 500 came with a 383, but I just cant get my mind off of getting a motor in the 400's, any tips?

    A 318 with dual exhausts and a 4 bbl carb should perform pretty well. As for an exhaust, Rockauto and Jegs would've 2 places to check out. You'll also want to join some Mopar forums, I bet there's lots of info in those. Many different models used the 318, so don't read just the Charger discussions.
