I've been shopping around lately for an exhaust system for my 06 2500HD w/ 8.1L. i found that Gibson has duals thats i want, and for a pretty good price. Anyone have any other suggestions? Sounds the best? Best Quality? What ever?- David -

I have the MBRP cat-back exhaust; decent price, it looks good and sounds great IMO. The tips angle out behind the rear tires though, not sure if you are in to that or prefer the straight out the back look.2003 Silverado 2500HD 6.0L Vortec V8

X2 MBRP is a good kit. Exhaust is a personal thing. What sound you like others don't. I also would check out Banks exhaust. I like the Banks sound better than my Magnaflow, and its good quality and fit.:cool:

I bought a 1 chamber muffler off ebay, a piece of pipe to adapt from the 2-3/4 exhaust pipe to the 3in inlet, a piece of 3in pipe with a 90 in it, and two clamps. I turned the pipe to exit just before the rear tire. I love the super aggressive sound, plus it doesn't resonate inside the cab.2010 Equinox LT

Any ideas on exhaust for a 2010 Silverado 1500, 4.8L? I have that new engine that goes from a V8 to a 4-cylinder on the highway.Garrett L. Baccus II

Best thing to do is go to youtube or some other video site and type in your truck and exhaust. Listen to the clips and see which exhaust you like the most.

Hey thumper, first things first, not trying to be a know it all but the 4.8L does not go into 4cyl mode, only the 5.3L does. 2nd look up corsa performance, they have a nice sounding exhaust for the price, its stainless, and has no drone on the freeway. I have it on my 5.3L that has active fuel management, and since the exhaust goes quoted at freeway speeds I have never noticed a ricer sound. And keep in mind the cylinders may not be firing but they're still pumping air.

I have a '11 Silverado LT Texas Edition 5.3L w/AFM. I had the cat-back MagnaFlow 3" Performance Muffler, 2 1/2" tailpipe, and 3 1/2" x 18" stainless tips installed... The sound is great, and I haven't noticed any "rice-burner" sound coming from my exhaust at highway speeds. I had heard this prior to having my system installed, and I am not at all unhappy with the sound I have achieved with the new exhaust. And I can definitely tell a positive performance difference over the stock exhaust. This is my 2 cents, I hope it helps......
