Indicators not working,but hazards do ???
Replace the combo switch in your steering column
Ensure that you get the correct one for your model,as the MQ and MK are different

Edelbrock ???,Im takin it has an Edelbrock inlet manifold ???
Dump pipes are suppose to bark and carry on
Take it to an exhaust shop,get them to have a look
Could a simple fix like extending the pipes to the rear or putting a tad quieter mufflers on it
Could replace the flasher units also,under the dash near the brake pedal area
