Cool adjustable side pipes?

no but you can get different replacement inserts that are louder or quieter as you desire

Default side pipes

I just picked up these side pipes from Summit along with a set of ceramic coated headers. They also have an install kit that contains all the pipes and clamps to connect the headers to the side pipes here are the parts.

I dont know if this is what your after. Whats nice about this set up is you can swap out the muffler part for a piece of 3in straight pipe and let it get loud.

Just my opinion, but I think they look sharp. They just seem to belong on a Vette, but they look like crap on other cars. I guess they aren't very practical because of the heat, etc., but I think they are worth having.

I have ceramic Hooker headers and side pipes. Love them! As far as getting the inserts out. Hmmmmm, I'd like to know how. It seems to me, once they are in, they are in.

Hey Chief, what's the latest on your TH700R4? I recently put a set of 3.70's in mine and they made a HUGE difference in each of the 4 gears.
