I looked at the same thing and determined that 3" was just too big to fit well. I am using 2.5" Magnaflow stainless. haven't installed it yet though.

What are the specs on your wheel and tire setup? I realize they are weld rt-s wheels, what sizes? They fit excellent and really give the car a killer look!

I'll get the specs for you. I know they are 18x8 in the front and 18x11 in the back. But the back spacing I'm not sure of. I need to go through my book and see exactly. With the air ride, we had the do some mods in the back

But with those pictures you see. I'll try and get a picture soon of it lowered down an inch with the air bags. It's super killer looking. I own a business in oil and gas so funding is not as good as it used to be. So gotta do it in sections when the wife allows it. Economy sucks for us right now, but getting better. Car should have been done 8 months ago.

Well, turns out the 6-71 blower needed to be rebuilt. So I went ahead and bought a new 10-71 to put on her. Should be much much more efficient. Plus looks a whole lot better!
