added great sound and performance to my 1992 dodge dakota with a 5.2 V8. coupled with all 3" pipe from the Y pipe back and a magnaflow high flow catalytic converter.Had a flowmaster,it rusted apart in the first year. The thrush welded is half the price with better sound and more power increase.

                Needed to replace exhaust on my wife's 89 K1500 . Found the 3" stainless exhaust pipe and hush thush muffler with 3" in and 3" out .I wouldn't recommend this set up to a casual D.I.Y.'er ,as there're no hangers on anything and I had to extend the outlet a little as even on this short bed the muffler caused the tailpipe to hit the rear axle.But in a couple of hours had her on and fired up . To describe this sound ,I have a '73 Harley 80cu.inch modified to the max with straight pipes, when I fired up her truck she was inside and thought I'd fired up my bike . Excellent ! Sounds like she likes and drives !Definitely an excellent combo !

                        Hi Oldbuck, this part is universal and not an exact fit for your 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle 454 engine. We do have an exact muffler available online for your vehicle and the part number is 42543. Please enter your vehicle on our website and search for this part to check the fitment.
