Chevy S-Series Exhaust Systems

About

The Chevy S-Series is a handy vehicle for drivers who need to ferry loads frequently. While S-Series models deliver remarkably, this constant heavy usage eventually takes its toll on them. Rather than spend more money than you want to on a new pickup or truck, why not upgrade your S-Series for better performance? A really simple and effective way to do so is with the installation of a custom exhaust system from CARiD. Truth is, after years of continuous use, even the best stock exhaust does need replacement. Unfortunately, stock exhaust systems cannot keep up optimum performance for more than a few years. Replacing them with a cheap exhaust is only a short lived solution, because sooner rather than later, the cheap exhaust functions and performance will go south, needing another replacement. Installing a performance exhaust is the only viable, long-term solution in this case. For the S-Series, Borla, Gibson, MagnaFlow and Flowmaster exhausts offer the best results, with each giving an average of 9-10% power increase.

Fitting the S-Series with a custom exhaust will to an extent solve one of its perennial problems, poor fuel economy. The average S-Series custom exhaust system gives up to 2mpg extra, which is quite substantial for drivers who use the vehicle often. It is an amount that will reflect in the huge change in your pockets after you have paid for your monthly fuel expenses. Who wouldn’t want that? There is also a range of better sound to sample with every S-Series custom exhaust. Most custom exhaust systems designed for the S-Series give a deep roar, which can range in intensity from moderate to loud. A constant factor in all the custom exhausts available though, whether moderate or loud, is that they sound far better than the stock exhaust. You get to choose how your S-Series sounds by picking the aftermarket exhaust of your choice from CARiD.

Guides & Articles
Regardless of whether you're shopping for a simple replacement muffler that delivers original equipment (OE) sound and performance or an upgraded muffler which provides a deeper growl with increased power through freer exhaust flow, you'll see choices between "direct fit" mufflers and "universal" mufflers. In this article, we'll help you understand the differences...
It has been a battle of the ages to make exhaust sound like it should. Having less bends or turns will not only improve the sound but also performance. A custom exhaust is always an option for the race inspired and spirited weekend warriors. Our manufactures offer everything needed to build a custom exhaust to your preference.
Headers are installed because the stock exhaust manifolds usually flow poorly. An exhaust header has individual tubes for each exhaust port, allowing each exhaust pulse to flow unobstructed from the cylinder head. The tubes on headers are usually larger in diameter than the runners on an exhaust manifold and the tubes are mandrel bent for gradual radius bends.

Was skeptical at first when I purchased it, but I like the ease of installation. Just remember to get a saw-zall to remove the stock muffler. After that, it's a 30 minute install. Nice, easy, and sexy! Low rumble, not too pronounced, with a notable increase in power. Excellent buy, great price.
