Default Kooks 3" True Duals, Over Axle Exhaust

**** This car is now for sale *** Featured in April issue of GMHTP ***
Write-up in the classified section will be posted in several days.


After completing our 455 cu. in. LS1 build, (another story) we wanted a 3" Stainless, true dual exhaust system, over the axle, with cats, and X-pipe.

We decided on KOOKS Custom Headers, on Long Island, NY, for the custom installation.
We met with George R at KOOKS and he designed the perfect system for us which included the above plus resonators, twin mufflers and Corsa tips.
The installation was done flawlessly with exceptional weld quality and incredible workmanship. Pictured below are some of the build and install photos.

We would like to thank Mr. Goerge Kook, George R., George Jr., Larry and Geronimo for the time, effort and hospitality that was given to us while we were at KOOKS.

The sound is exactly what we wanted. The exhaust sound is deep, not raspy and is totally awesome.

PS - The install required a BMR Panhard relocation kit.

If you would like additional pics send PM.

IF you are considering a system such as this, I would strongly recommend contacting George R. at KOOK Custom Headers. He is a true professional, a "good guy" and a pleasure to deal with.















10/30 edited: After driving the car 150 miles, we can say that there are NO rattles or squeeks. Put the car on the lift and there are NO rubs anywhere.

For those who haven't noticed, there is also a driveshaft loop.

That is probably the nicest system I have seen for these cars. What is the ground clearance like ? is your car lowered at all ? I was thinking of lowering mine a bit maybe 1 1/2 -2 " I am dying to get this done but Im sure the total price for headers and everything else is prolly about 2k - 2.5k which may be a bit too much for me to spend right now but maybe Ill take out a loan lol.
SOUND CLIP PLEASE !!!!!! I wonder if it would be too loud without the resonators in the pipe before the axle ?
Thanks for the info.

MRBOWTIE26-
The car gas not been lowered. Sits at standard ride height.
Mininum ground clearance is 5.5" at the left front cat.
Being in the NY/CT area, you should contact George R @ KOOKS.

You have got to have the nicest true 3" system around.
KOOKS did a remarkable job. From what I can see the bend and weld quality is right on.

Could you please post any additional pics and sound clip....

no doubt. thats a masterpiece there. cant say ive seen better.
nice bracket welded to the resonators as well.
id bet that would be the end of all "true duals" thread if it were produced. no reason to ask any questions. buy and bolt on.
