    I would rather have them too but it's a matter of being able to drive the truck vs waiting to free up an additional $150 which should be goung towards my lift

    They are the same as the turbos you can buy at most muffler shops for about the same price. I had them on my old blazer and thats probably what Ill run when i get the new exhaust on my truck. They are cheap, not real loud and have a good sound.

    I put the WELDED summit turbos on my black k5....
    I like the way they sound.
    My neighbor just bought the summit mufflers you are looking at...
    They seem to be louder than a generic turbos.
    He's happy with his!!! /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    I looked at the welded ones too but didn't really see a huge difference between the two...plus I'll save $40 /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    This could all come back to haunt me but I'll spend my $40 and see what happens

    I just bought the welded ones...
    because they are made from a heavier guage steel...
    I don't have much luck...
    with mufflers lasting here in Ohio...
    in the humid-air. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    My experience with cheap, crimped-together, turbo muffs is that they're good for 18-24 months in areas where the roads get salted in the winter. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif There's a reason they only cost $20 each. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    18-24 months is perfect. By that time I should have shaved for a good exhaust system /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    They are a very good muffler for the price.
    I run them on my daily driver 71 Elky with a 325HP 350.
    I really like the way they sound, had them on for 2 years now and they have seen lots of 6500RPM runs thru them without them blowing out.
    They still sound good, Im going to put them on the Blazer when I clean things up.
    For the $$$, they're hard to beat
