        Why does this say it will fit 2010-2018 Silverados but all others show fitment as 14-18?

        • This exhaust has a unique design that allows it to fit this broader range of years. We have had quite a few customers with 2011's who love this.

            This exhaust was very easy to install using regular hand tools. It is louder than I expected but it is great. The drone from 4 cylinder mode is not that bad, it is tolerable. Great exhaust at a good price.

            Better Than Borla and Corsa

            My dad and brother and I all have 2017-2018 Silverados with the 5.3 and their trucks have the Corsa exhausts and I get more compliments on my Carven exhaust on how it sounds more aggressive. The quality is amazing and its not loud in the cab but when you get on it heads turn. Amazing quality and an even better price. Don't waste 1,000 bucks on a Corsa or Borla. Buy this exhaust!!!

            By far the best exhaust!

            Just got this in today and had it installed in 20 minutes tops! The fit and finish is amazing. Everything fit together like a glove! I had checked online for every exhaust I could find and stumbled upon Carven on a forum. I have to say that this is by far the best sounding exhaust I’ve ever heard. The YouTube videos don’t do it justice. This is coming from a Borla guy who had an XR-1 on my 05 Silverado. The Carven competitor cat-back system is very similar in tone as a Borla exhaust bit for half of the price. Well worth every penny!

            Love it!

            Super easy install after the old exhaust is out. Nice rumble at start up and acceleration but not too loud while cruising. Nicely priced and worth the money. Exactly what I was looking for!

            Awesome system

            Great system for the money. All 304 stainless with very good welds. Came with all the needed hardware. No instructions were in the box, but if you need them for 3 pipe sections and 3 clamps this isn’t something you should be attempting. The cold start sound is insane. I keep remote starting my Silverado just to hear it. Once it’s warm it emits a nice idle rumble. From the inside it’s quiet. Driving around, it’s loud on acceleration but cruising it’s almost stock. Overall loud enough to be loud. But quiet enough when it needs to be. It’s perfect. Install tools 30 minutes once the stock was off. Unless you have a lift or can get enough lift to get the stock one out in one piece , cut it after the main muffler and the whole install should take an hour tops.

            Nice Rumble

            Good exhaust note, not too loud(certainly not as loud as the AmericanTrucks "loud meter" made it out to be on the video.........).

            Simple, yet satisfying.

            I remotely started the truck from the house with my phone and it actually startled me a little. 4am and wasn't ready for it. The install was a breeze. I did it on my back in the driveway on a set of ramps. I did have to cut my stock exhaust. It took me longer to get the clamp loose up by the cat then to put this exhaust on. "V4" AFM sounded weird the first time on the road heading to work. Almost thought my exhaust popped loose. You keep the RPMs under 2k when up to speed its not too bad. This system turns heads for sure. Leaving work and had a few people looking around the parking lot. Has a very satisfying sound at startup and at idle. For the price, the quality is equal too if not better then the bigger name brand systems. Definitely recommend this system. If not this one definitely recommend the brand. Quality craftsmanship, and Made in America.

            AWSOME EXHAUST!!

            Completely changed the sound of my truck from quiet to deep rumble. I love the cold start and when i punch the throttle makes every dollar worth it. No headaches straight forward installation. Took more time taking stock exhaust out than puttin the new one in. Took me hour 30 mins total.

            I have used several other "high end" exhaust systems and almost every company you can think of, but WOW. This Carven exhaust system is spectacular, I am very impressed with the ease of installation, the quality of the system, the sound, and the great price. This is going to be a purchase that you will not regret. Around town she is throaty and mean, but get it up to highway speeds and I've discovered little to no drone in the cab. You will not regret this purchase!

            Perfect rumble

            I'm really satisfied with the Carven Comp exhaust! The install was a breeze, maybe a little over an hour. It sounds loud when you get on it and a clean while cruising. I use the autostart more often so I can hear her fire up.

            WOW!!! What a head turner

            This exhaust is awesome. I've been riding around with my windows down more. Love the deep, throaty rumble. I was going to try and save the old exhaust, but I didn't have a lift. So, that old sawzall came in handy. This is just me, but looking at it from behind where the black tip meets the SS pipe, I painted the pipe with high temp. paint back about 2 or 3 foot (sorry Carven). I like the look better. I would recommend this exhaust to anyone.

            Best Bang for you Buck Exhaust

            Carven may not be a big name but there products are amazing. The finish of the stainless on the exhaust is very very nice. The fitting process was spot on, it looks great. The sound is even better. For a cat-back exhaust its got a very great sound. Definitely on the loud side when you are on it.
