    Default 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:

    #1

    #2

    #3

    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 help

    My favorite is option number 2. I really like flowmaster and an exhaust that exits on each side at the rear.

    I really like the 1st one. I just like the look of pipes before the tires.

    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

    yeah I saw #3 on amazon last night for like $250 being sold by magnaflow but there was only one left and now its gone. Now its being sold by some dealer for $566.83

    I have another question? how much do you think a custom true dual job might cost?

    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.
