So sorry if I sound dumb but is $75 the only downside to going with the 3" stainless solution over the 2.5"?  I mean the stock is 2.5" so not sure why someone would replace 2.5" for 2.5".

What's involved if going with the 3" solution in terms of mufflers and other connections etc.  Wonder if I got the 3" should I get a downpipe too while I'm under there are just spring for headers?  Another dumb question = are headers and downpipes for ls4's 3" connections?

anybody have those pipes on their cars yet? I am strongly considering the 3" stainless option but never heard of this company before. and I have a local shop that can weld up the stainless so it will be right.

post up some pics of the fit and finish pls. I'm going for the stainless 3"  if the fit and finish is good. and getting it welded up instead of just clamping. I have 2 borla xr1 round mufflers already but that system says for offset inlet center exit. wonder if there is enough pipe for center in/out setup.

@ Skydog: Exhaust looks good man! Just gives me the extra itch to wanna get mine done sooner!!!

@ face215: Thank you tremendously for finding and posting this!!! Now everyone who has these cars has a viable alternative - not to mention a cheaper one - to the ZZP 3" system!!!

Am definitely looking at this for mine!

I would, but i need to have it cat'd. I can't afford to NOT have it pass emissions testing. But thanks though!

I have a 07 impala that I installed a 3 in zzp catless downpipe and the trubendz 3 in stainless system on with magnaflow glasspacks and it sounds amazing. I get complimented on the sound all the time
