    I just did a whole new exhaust system my self it is about 99% done (I need a tail pipe. :crazy: ) I did not use the super 40 I just used the flowmaster 40 seires with a dynomax super cat. I upgraded the pipes to 2.5 and it is loud my firends where able to hear me about 1.5 miles away. By the way this is a single exhaust system I don't like duel exhaust. What I found when I was done is that the tip off my new muffler was around where the tip of my old muffler was.

    I went to advance auto parts and bought a new y-pipe and center pipe. I got my muffler and cat off from summitracing.com when I was done I spend around $400.00 if a shop did it it would of cost me around $800 (maby more). I am going to end up going to the exhaust shop to get a tail pipe made up.

    SO SEARCH SUMMITRACING.COM
    Thanks

    ok, let me grab the cell phone and run outside..hope there is enough light...be back in about 10min


    oh yeah and my entire exhaust was done by a shop for $500 out the door..it was so cheap becasue at the time alot of people were asking about the super40 but no one wanted to get one until they heard what they sounded like, so he told me if i got the supper 40 he would hook me up..and he did!

    i really like the sound of the super 40. deep and agressive..not too much louder than a regular 40 series but definatly more agressive. when i go through town at about 2500 rpms it rumbles enough to set off car alarms :D

    "camsk5" in redding has heard it and he says it sounds like a "hot rod"

    and yes you can hear me comming..the other night i was out side working on my ex's mustang, and she took my k-5 to the store real quick, about 8 blocks away..i was able to hear my truck all the way to the store. i could hear each time she took off from a stop sign, and i heard her fire it up when she got out of the store, and heard her comming all the way back home! :D

    the super 40 comes painted flat black...but after a few thousand miles..the paint "burns" off as you can see in the pics

    hope these pics give you an ideal..sorry kinda hard to see, getting dark outside..

    looks good, i really wanna run true duals,especially since with my 8" lift the front driveshaft rubs like crazy on the y pipe, and would love to run 2 super 40s. but ppl say that u are only aloud to have as many cats that came from the factory, so that kinda eliminates that :(

    yeah if it wasn't for cali smog, i would have true duals also..
    don't know much about the front drive shaft rubbing..mine doesn't come close..of course my "y pipe" isn't in the factory spot, (you can see in the pics..factory is below the oil pan...)i had it moved and tucked.. granted my lift is only 4 inches. but i just looked at it again, and i would say if i went to 8 inches the drive shaft would be even farther away from hitting then it is now

    looking at this pic..factory location is under the oil pan, right in front of where the pan drops down..personally i had it moved so i could drop the oil pan with out having to unbolt the exhaust..if you look close you can see front drive shaft and its no where near the exhaust.

    Good to hear feedback on the series 40 mufflers. I intend on installing one. I was gonna go duels, but too much exhaust to tear off and have to replace.

    so is ur new y-pipe like right under where the front driveshaft hooks up to the t-case? ya it looks like u will never have anything to worry about it rubbing. how much further back is it from stock? maybe ill just do something like that.
