    Jegs or Summit might have some. If not I would go and get one custom built with the muffler of your choice

    Summit has the pacesetter but I think it may be too quiet.

    Go to a muffler shop. It wont cost much at all if you buy the muffler online. Go with single chambers and make a true dual catback system

    Well my sister wants to buy it and have it shipped. I was thinking the same thing. Think I'll have her send this out:

    I had a hooker on both of my 3rd gens. It sounded pretty good. It was deep with a little throatiness to it. Fit good and wasn't expensive.

    I had a friend with an 02 ss and when he took the slp off it, he gave it to me, and I had an exhaust shop put it on my 86 (305 h.o. berlinetta coupe) and it worked fine and sounded awesome. You do need to have a custom mid pipe bent for it though.

    Edelbrock also makes a kit for these. They even replicate the factory tailpipes correctly which is one reason I went with it on the 3rd gen I had.

    Well they don't make it for the 3rd gen that I'm aware of,,,that is since I messed with my Iroc about 2 years ago.

    Although it could be made to fit,,,all the bracketry would have to be fabbed for starters,,,all hangers and brackets are different from 3rd to 4th gen. Different locations and different styles.

    The pipes themselves may fit with minor tweaking. Not saying it won't go,,,just don't expect that to be an afternoon drop in and go type of job.

    Much easier to go with a kit designed for the 3rd gen. There are plenty of others to choose from that are effective and sound good without all the install headaches.

    Well he just got a set of Eldebrock shorties so we are going to try the true dual route. Thirdgen.org has a good write up on a 2.5 which includes a 3.5 inch cross over. So much for under 500 bones
