Summit Exhaust System

Has anyone installed the Summitt Aluminumized exhaust system? They offer these for an economical price of $170. Are these okay if you're only looking for sound rather than performance? I know these don't compare to the systems like MagnaFlow but are they worth the $$$? Pros and Cons?

Re: Summitt Exhaust System

I bought and installed one on my 68. I wanted something I could put on in my garage to keep it quite until it's finished. The one I bought sounds like crap - mufflers aren't very good. My plan has always been to have a better system put on once I can drive to an exhaust shop. It went in easy and does what I need it to, but I think you would get better sound with flowmaster, magnaflow, etc. You might be able to get the kit with more aggressive sounding mufflers. The one I bought does not have a cross/x over.

Re: Summit Exhaust System

I bought the 3 inch Summit Brand system and it was VERY loud and did not fit very well. The mufflers are crap..

I ended up scrapping it and buying a Pypes stainless system with an x pipe and their Race Pro mufflers.. It is semi-quiet at idle, but really sounds good when you get on it...

Quite a few people have had fitment issues as did I, but take your time and you should be able to get it to fit .

I think I paid $369 shipped from Summit Racing..
