My new exhaust!

I jumped on the bandwagon and bought one of the remaining Hillbank/Roush/SLP Thunderbolt exhaust system off Ebay. For $165 you just can't beat the price. I hope I like it.

I was going to get a Borla ProXS muffler and get custom dauls, but $80 for the muffler and $250 for piping I went this route. No one would touch my truck locally for $250, $350 if I wanted stainless piping.

I know alot of you here have this exhaust. How yah liking it so far? Anyone bend the tailpipes so they exit out the sides? I can't decide, out the back or the sides.

Anyway, looking forward to installing the first mod on my truck.

I purchased one a couple months ago and plan on having it installed next month and having it exit out the sides instead of straight back.

You might have....when a good deal is out and about it's hard not to spread the word.

The stocker can rest peacefully up on the rafters of my garage hopefully for many years.

watch it on the driverside.. thats where the gas tank is.. and why noone has dual side exit.

i wanted it that way but i went with dual/oneside exit. but i think the exhaust for the 302 will be dual side exit, cause i think im gona get a fuel cell

I know it's a good deal, I'm just hoping it sounds better then my '97 with no muffler and split dauls.

Persoanlly, I thought it sounded kinda cool, had that foreign performance car tone to it.

I pull nothing so I'll leave the tips coming out the back. I'll let you know what I think of it as soon as it's on, might have some pics too. Latter.
