It's actually a pretty decent system for the price. They only issues I had were it exits right at the shackle and blows exhaust on it. The second was my wife thought it was to loud.

So the Summit exhaust kit was a good bang for the buck?? I am in the middle of deciding which way to go on the exhaust, didn't know anyone with experience with the complete "header-back" exhaust systems. Did that Summit Kit come with an X pipe?

no it does not but all the pipes with the x pipe are about $200 to $300 more in my opinion it is not worth it.

You missed out, Summit was running a special on their exhaust. $160! :eek: I bought one for my Nova. :D:devil::yes: Now it costs $200.

You can add an X-pipe to the Summit kit. Was on sale for $75. Now $85.

I'll post an install thread as soon as I'm done welding it up. UPS says it will be delivered tomorrow! :D :D

i think the system is pretty good for the price. the sound is not obnoxious and the quallity is good. and i like that it has 2 mufflers instead of the combined one that most other kits have

x2. I like a system that has two muffs, not that transverse mounted single muffler [email protected] :rolleyes:

My $160 Summit 2.5" exhaust kit arrived Saturday! Woo-hoo! :D I took pics - will post tonight or tomorrow. Very very nice quality on the materials, and the mandrel bends are perfect. Just from the looks of it, the best $160 I've spent in a long time!

Keeping American jobs alive... Made in the USA! :usa:

I am sure you can still get that deal from Summit if your "schmoozy" enough on the phone.

69, look forward to the install pics. I'll probably be using this same kit.
What part number is this?

Other than sound and performance, or should I say POTENTIAL performance gains, why would someone go with the 2.5 vs. the 2.25. For my mild application I am thinking the 2.25 is all I need. I have had people tell me sometimes too big of an exhaust can actually hurt performance.

What was the stock size on original dual systems?

I used to have those turbo style mufflers and always thought they were too loud.

The factory exhaust was a 2 inch compression bent system I believe. On a mild small block a 2.25 inch mandrel bend system would be more than enough. 2.5 inch systems are good up to 500 HP.
