Cherry Bomb Extreme: 1988 Chevy s10 4-Banger
My buddy Rex's $500 '88 s10. We could have just fixed the stock 4-banger's Exhaust leak, but we're self-proclaimed hot rodders (I've got a '50 Dodge he's building a '51 Chevy) so we decided to hop it up a bit. Cherry Bomb Extreme muffler with a 2.5" inlet to dual 2.25" outlets. Total investment not much more than $150. The muffler and chrome tail pipes where the big ticket items, while local parts store supplied the clamps and hangers and I came through with the sticks of 2.5" and 2.25" pipe I had somehow gathered over the years. Probably the coolest sounding banger i've heard. Has a really cool lope at idle. A little loud from behind but a lot quieter in the cab. Not too bad for a couple amateurs and nights work. Lift by BendPak.

Chevy S-10 151ci / 2.5L with Straight Pipes
Custom Exhaust on my old S-10. Custom made header, no cat, and a Y-pipe. It has a carb instead of the normal EFI. Gets about 32 city and 40+ highway (5 speed). Only a 7 gallon tank. Sounds like a leaf blower...
