Default Exhaust System for 5.3 V8

I have a 2009 Colly 4X4 Z71 with the 5.3 litre. I am looking for dual exhaust system. Anyone have an idea or place to look. I have tried all the big hitters with no luck. Thanks.

Check out MBRP - they seem to make exhausts for everything. It's pretty much bolt on which is nice.
I actually know a couple of people that have the exhaust and they're more than happy.

Welcome

SLP "was" the only system ever produced for the 5.3, but I do not believe they still make it?

I just hacked off the muffler on mine and put a straight through hooker maxflow muffler with a z28 rectangular tip coming out the underside of the bumper. On the other side I welded a fake tip same Z28 one to match the right side with a pipe that curls up under behind the bumper, looks like real duals. The whole job cost me under 100 bucks. Main problem is its not loud enough surprisingly, the rear cats soak up a lot of the sound. Also the advantage of doing this the way I did is no need to loose the spare tire. The only time it gets a little embarrassing is when the trucks up on the lift for the oil change sometimes the guys follow the pipes back and realize the left outlet is fake.

No way, I owned a quick lube joint for 15 years and never want to do another oil change ever again. ;)

I haven't seen any available, I always make my own with 304 stainless, it is sweet dual out the back with 4" magnaflow tips and I modified the spare tire mounting so as to keep full size spare in stock location.
