    Default exhuast for 4.3 Chevy Truck

    hi everyeverybody. i have a 97 chevy cheyyene. its the basic model with the v-6, Its also a single cab, short bed, with manual trans. im wondering what kind of exhaust i should get. definetly a cat-back. my budget is 300 bucks. please dont say a cherry bomb it makes the truck sound like a beefed up civic and will piss the neighbors off. haha

    I'd stick with original exhaust. Nothing loud an a 6... makes them sound like a worn out Grand Am.

    I did have a CB turbo that sounded ok. But for real, my brother had single pipe straights on his. Didn't sound too bad.

    If at first you don't succeed, get a bigger cheater bar.

    I leveled mine and put 255/65/15 Mastercraft Avengers and a few other things cosmetic and engine wise to get some fuel mileage back. Also I'd chip it which I never got to do.

    Left the stock bumpers and lower air dam.
