Wanted to spruce of the old rig, 2001 GMC Yukon Denali XL, so asked a lot of car guys for advise. The 70 Series seemed to be the choice. The XL is the family car and not a muscle car. Autoeverything price can't be beat. Meineke did an install for $50 as it was essentially a swap. They needed to flute the pipes a bit as stock is 2 5/8 and 70 Series are 2 1/4. Dual in, dual out into a Y with a single exhaust. Experts appear split on benefits of dual exhaust, bigger sound, maybe little power boost. Dual exhaust pipes would have cost another $300 or so. Sounds great and heads turn, but inside the rumble is pleasant. A bigger sound might be great at first, but conversation in the car would suffer. Kept the factory pipes, single outlet. I love starting up the Yukon and I feel the extra power for sure. I can really feel the power on climbs. Also put in an oversized K&N airfilter.
