Check out Connor94's thread. He pulled it off nicely. It's 10 pages long but worth the read. Here's a link.Hey all,
I am battling myself over which exhaust setup to run for the looming LS3 swap on the 2003 Blazer X in my sig. Hoping to tear into this in mid-late March.
Any photos out there of any Gen2 Blazer exhaust systems?
Obviously a lot of pickups out there, but not too many Blazers. There is not much room on the left/driver side to run any pipes due to the vapor cannister/etc. that sits next to the leaf spring. Fuel tank is in the rear on Blazers vs the side tank on pickups.
The reason I am looking at these dual Magnaflow 4" mufflers instead of a dual in and ingle out is because all of the reviews say that these are the quietest mufflers out there. I am trying to keep this from being completely annoying. Between the cats, mufflers and resonator, I think this would be very tolerable - even at 545hp.
Assuming that I need to run this to a single exit on the right side, my current idea is as follows:
- I am really trying to cut as much drone as possible and the same Ultra-Quiet resonator absolutely KILLED the drone in my Titan with long tubes and a full 3" system.
- The Y after the mufflers is different, but is a common setup in late model trucks. This is the only way I can think of to get the resonator in there. Plenty of room on the right side.
- I would love to fit an X-pipe, but won't know until I get everything in place. If I can make it fit, it will be there between the cats and mufflers.
3" from headers to tailpipe
Headers - Holley 70201316-r - 1 3/4" Mid-length Stainless - Just got them back from Jet-Hot - Pic below
Cats - Magnaflow 447209 Universal 3" - CARB approved (required in Colorado - don't get me started )
Mufflers - Magnaflow 14419 Performance Mufflers - 3" in and out.
Resonator - Vibrant Ultra-Quiet 1142 - 3"
Any feedback and photos are appreciated!

Here starts the next phase in my "car guy" career. This will be the second fully commited build I've done. Im in a completely different place than I was when I first got my 94, so now I have a chance to do things differently than I did before, which means this new truck will be better than the...
