Need some advice on Flowmaster
So I finally got a job and am now looking at maybe purchasing that new exhaust system I have always been wanting and was hoping I could get some recommendations or some system that aren't to horribly expensive ($8 an hour☺)
The three systems I was allready looking at were these:
those are just a few I was looking at and there are others so please list up what ever you got
and yeah I will shop around the internet for some cheaper prices first
(Specs are: 2004 Silverado 1500, 5.3L V8, stranded cab, short bed)
Thanks in advance for opinions and help2004 Chevy Silverado w/ 5.3L V8 / Z71 / Shorty

My favorite is option number 2. I really like flowmaster and an exhaust that exits on each side at the rear.1995 Silverado,Z71, 3-inch lift,2-inch leveling kit, SkyJacker Suspension, short ram-air intake, throttle body spacer, MSD ignition coil, straight pipes

I really like the 1st one. I just like the look of pipes before the tires.2010 Equinox LT
2.4, 6 speed auto, power lift gate, remote start, bluetooth, xm.
1995 Cheyenne C1500 ext. cab(my baby, my first truck)

I like the 1st one as well I just wonder how far those tips come out from the side and if it would look goofy or not
and yeah I agree with you Junkie, the pipes that come straight out the back tend to look weired if you don't have your truck lowered

I'm actually doing a custom true dual on my truck right now. I bought an X-Pipe for $20 and two Hooker MaxFlow mufflers for $67.99 a piece from Jegs. So that's about $160 for parts. Then, this next week (probably Wednesday) I'm gonna have it all installed for $160 with exits out the back.
So in the end, 100% true dual WITH an X-Pipe for about $320 to $350.
Doing things on your own and not buying the full kits is definitely the way to go. Don't buy a full kit if you're trying to save money. Buy all the parts that you want and either install them yourself to really save money, or find a local muffler shop that will install them for relatively cheap.MY LUG NUTS REQUIRE MORE TORQUE THAN YOUR RICER MAKES! :sign0011:
