I couldn't be happier with Summit's Street and Strip mufflers. They are a two chamber style like the Flowmaster 40s. Nice deep rumble at idle and downright brutal at WOT. They also do not have the...

Today, I drove the truck to work, class, and finished up the rebuild on a 650 double pumper. I think it looks much better polished a bit than with the factory coating!
