what needs to be changed to put a 05 catback on a 04

I bought a 04 with the sap body kit thus the exhaust was butchered to split it and install the sap mufflers. can I switch this out with like a 05 loudmouth that comes out both sides?

Thanks

I have a 04 dual exhaust setup that will bolt to 04 midpipes but is basically a 05/06 setup. All you would need is the SAP tips and swap them out. Its a JBA cat-back. Ill let it go cheap if you want it pm me......

610 hp's on a stock LS1! How's your engine holding up? And do you drive it often?

That's right, and the motor loves it! I drove it all summer.....put it through it's paces for sure and not one single issue. Just breaks drivetrain parts is all.

Eh, who needs drivetrain? It's hard to admire the purr of a well-built V8 when all you can see is a screaming blur of color and GTO badges shooting down the road, amirite?
