The Kit Is A Full Bolt-On System, And Is The Most Extensive Project In The Company’s History

Chevrolet Silverado Exhaust Kooks

Kooks Headers and Exhaust announced the debut of a full bolt-on exhaust system for the new 2019+ Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500 pickup trucks – the ones based on the new General Motors T1 platform. The full Kooks system consists of headers, 49-state-legal “Green” catted Y-pipes, and cat-back exhaust. A Silverado or Sierra with this new exhaust system will be more than just a better sounding V8 pickup truck, as the kit adds 17 horsepower, and 15 lb-ft of torque on top of the stock engine. Those numbers are dyno-tested, according to Kooks.

Kooks engineers have been developing bolt-on exhaust systems for the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra for 18 years now. So it’s fair to wonder what took so long for an aftermarket exhaust authority such as Kooks to develop a bolt-on system for the T1 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra. The answer is that it all goes back to GM’s fortified cybersecurity systems, and its encrypted ECU. Included in that are the onboard diagnostic systems (OBD) on these General Motors pickup trucks. These sensors continually monitor the engines and emission control systems, including parts like the catalytic converter. Needless to say, this continues to present a major hurdle for the aftermarket.

As a result, Kooks claims that developing this bolt-on exhaust system for the 2019+ Silverado and Sierra has been the most extensive R&D project in the history of the company. The result of the time put in is that the new bolt-on system is engineered to perform without any other modifications.

We’re post a video of the new GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado exhaust system when it becomes available. Below is a full pricing breakdown for the various Kooks kits:

Muscle Cars & Trucks was founded by Manoli Katakis - an automotive media veteran that has been covering the latest car news since 2009. His journalism has uncovered dozens of major product changes, updates, plans, and cancellations long before automakers were ready to make things official.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.

Over the years, Manoli has interviewed various automotive industry titans, leaders, and people that make things happen otherwise. These include figureheads such as GM CEO Mary Barra, GM President Mark Reuss, automotive aftermarket icon Ken Lingenfelter, Dodge firebrand Tim Kuniskis, along with various chief engineers of vehicles such as the Ford F-150 & Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro & Corvette, and many more.

At MC&T, Manoli is taking his journalism expertise, deeply planted sources, driving abilities, and automotive industry knowledge to new levels, covering more vehicles and brands than ever before. This is the place where you will continue to read groundbreaking stories about American performance vehicles, pickup trucks, and sport utility vehicles. Here is where you’ll also read insights and quotes from various automotive subject matter experts on the latest relevant products, as well as some of the latest official news from their manufacturers.

Fun facts: he also once beat Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner in an autocross with a Chevrolet Bolt EV. The biggest vehicle he’s ever driven is a John Deere mining truck. Besides a go-kart, the smallest vehicle he’s driven has been a Hyundai i10. He’s also spent time in the cockpit of various American performance vehicle icons, including the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Dodge Challenger Demon, and Ford Mustang GT350R. He has reviewed dozens of trucks, SUVs, and performance vehicles over the years.

One of his favorite new vehicles on the market today happens to be the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison. He is also a card carrying member of the Sports Car Club of America, and regularly participates in Detroit Region autocross events.
