I just read the installation manual from the Roadhouse website. First, these are not slip-ons. Roadhouse supplies new pipes coming from the jugs and new mufflers in the rear. The stock exhaust system is not able to be separated in the middle like that. The term slip on usually refers to taking the muffler section off your stock exhaust and slipping on just a new muffler at the rear. Secondly, this new system supplies the exhaust pipes and chrome mufflers, but you end up putting the stock forward heat shields back on the new pipes. This isn't necessarily bad, just different from how a lot of other companies do it. If your stock chrome is showing any age yet, the new chrome muffler may outshine it for a while. Also, the price doesn't seem to be any lower than what you can get a complete system with heat shields and all for at Cobra or V&H. Of course, looks are a large part of it. So if you like the look of this set, maybe that is how you should go. I can only assume the folks at Roadhouse have done their homework when it comes to sound, back pressure, flow balance, etc. Good luck.
