There's a reason why people look to SoCal and the desert southwest for rot free sheetmetal on older cars. As for us in the midwest and east coast road salt and cinders are a common winter pestilence on our cars.

Yet another reason we put up with CA, My Blazer is from the east and it's a 00 the whole bottom is rust, no the strange thing is CA think a car with 50k on is way low mileage for a used car the average is about 80k and up and that is still good for us.

Aluminized will last longer than most people will have the car. They do offer a stainless option at a signifigant premium.

www.marylandspeed.com appears to have some pretty good prices on Spintech exhaust systems. However, I did not see Spintech Pro Street listed explicitly.

i had a Spintech Pro Street 2 1/2" exhaust made up for my car with a Magnaflow x-pipe. now i have a cammed, headers, !cats exhaust to start with and it was really loud, too loud for me. i added 3" inlet/outlet 21" Power Sticks to it up in the mid-pipe section and now i love the sound. a little more subdued at low throttle but screaming at WOT. PS i got my Spintechs on eBay and got a lot better price than the speed shops

I have the magnaflow system on my car, and I don't like the sounds of it when i shift. It makes a noise that sounds like a turkey being raped. Not sure what i'm going to do about it, but maybe the Spintech sould be an option.

IS there many on here with flowmasters? I'm beginning to think I should just go the smart/cheap route and get a flowmaster AND kooks LT's rather than just a borla or spintech and have to put the kooks on hold.

One more ?: I cannot seem to find an online store with a flowmaster exhaust for an '05 gto. I went to flowmasterperformance.com and they stop at '04. Any suggestions? Thanks!

sorry but flowmaster just as cheap as you were expecting never bothered to make a whole exhaust kit for 05-06 GTOs, even the 04 isn't that great. what they do recommend is buy their 40 series that they sell mainly for 60s muscle cars and install those on the GTO. theres probably one person on here who has flowmasters but i haven't seen them on for a while; ironic though they made a fully custom black painted exhaust system for the 05 mustangs when they came out, can you sense the favortaisim there? i wouldnt ever consider borla, its too expensive cause its stainless steel and its polised both inside and out, its good but not wroth the cash. spintech is good but also look into: magnaflow and corsca

The reality is that any manufacturer is going to build products where there's a volume market. Compare the Mustang production of something like 140,000 units vs. GTO sales of (I'm sure I'm misstating) something like 9,000-10,000 units. If you are going to the expense of R&D and scaled manufacturing, you need to pick opportunities where you can sell a bunch.

Question

So, I still have yet to buy an exhaust or headers for my goat. The more research I do... the more I change my mind. I was on Ls1gto.com and I see several people buying just the spintech mufflers and getting an H-pipe. Anyone here familar with this set-up. I guess there's this guy on the site that fabricates his own h-pipes. You can get a clamp or weld one. The one you have to get welded would be better, right?


The only reason I really wanted an exhaust was for sound. I know you don't get much horsepower from it that's why I'm thinking about just getting the spintech pro street mufflers for sound and getting Kooks LT's.

From what I've heard on youtube of the spintech mufflers.... it impressed me. What do you guys think? Will I be fine for Indiana's emissions or no? I heard that from switching from my x-pipe to an H-pipe with spintech mufflers will possibly set off an O2 sensor. Is this true?

Thanks!
