Just purchased a speed engineering 3 inch stainless build your own kit, two Jones Max Flow mufflers and hangers. Going to dump right before the axle, not sure what kind of crazy is going to happen with the rear suspension soon so I want room to run a Panhard bar and maybe a 3 link. Less than $300 for a 3 inch system. Regardless it will be worlds better than the aluminized 2.25 inch an Thrush Mufflers I have going on now. Going to try to do an A-B comparison on my buddies dyno to see how much power it picks up.

Of course all of this means it needs to warm up in Michigan...

Exhaust Kit - Same company that made my headers. Very happy with them, we'll see how this kit installs.

Mufflers - Supposedly a good Magnaflow knock off.

Actually, my buddy has these on a mustang and they are super quiet. AT WOT they will make some noise, but when cruising they are pretty quiet. And considering I'm running a factory LS3 cam my car is too quiet as is.

I have a pair of flowmasters that came with the car. I don't know anything about them, they might be considered loud. When I got the car they dumped out before the axle and it was deafening. I had to drive with earplugs until i got tailpipes.

I was really popular with the police during this time =)

I run the speed engineering headers. Haven't had the chance to put the exhaust on yet.

They fit just fine. a little bit of dimpling here or there, but fine otherwise. I used the Hooker Mounts, and the 302-2 oil pan.

cool, I use the same mount / oil pan combo. was worried about the collector to driver floor pan clearance , and ground clearance. one more thing. I look on Speeds site, do you have the #'s for them LT'S just so I am looking at the same set? thanks.

Quick update. I was able to get my car on my buddies Dyno for a "before" pull through this garbage exhaust.

[Linked Image]

352 Horsepower / 375 Ft Lbs as measured by a Dynapack Dyno at the hubs, SAE correction factor.

I'm getting married in a couple of weeks, and then once I'm back from the honeymoon I'll jump into getting the exhaust.
