This blog is more information to help the consumer pick and choose the best exhaust for their later model Chevrolet Silverado. I will mainly focus on the model ranges from 1999-2008(New Body). There are so many new brands and applications to help make that new pickup rumble, there's nothing like a marquee street presence. I will also go over what you will need to know to comply with your local emissions laws.
The primary function of your exhaust system is to dispel gases being produced by your engine. The stock factory setup is always unappealing to look at, how they sound, and how restrictive they can be to the performance of your ride. A more free flowing system can enhance horsepower and torque. And make the change good enough that you wouldn't be obligated to squander thousands of dollars for supercharges and modified engines that may or may not pass local emissions.
There are a couple variables when trying to choose the right system. Is there a price budget you had in mind? Do you want something with deep sound, or maybe a small subdued rumble will suffice? And lastly, would you want dual pipes or maybe a swept side catback will do? Everything just questioned is more or less preference, there are numerous applications that help out.
Dealer installed or aftermarket? Sure you pay more for the dealer installed exhaust, but usually these systems are backed by the dealer or the company that installed them. Plus you wouldn't have to hassle with doing it yourself and taking time out of your busy schedule to get it done. With aftermarket, you can get any customized application you prefer and use any brand that you want, this would be my choice. A huge plus is the aftermarket installation is also worlds cheaper.
What brands are there in the market? There are a lot of manufacturers that have quality systems for various budgets. Want great quality? Borla, Corsa, and Bassani might be the choice for you. Want something affordable? Then maybe Flowmaster, Edelbrock, or Hedman is the one for you. The one I can say is, all of these companies have an established reputation for quality and reliability. The website below will most certainly provide closer specs and available applications for your Chevrolet Silverado.
