Gibson Exhaust Installed

i got the si/so swept side for christmas, the sound is pretty mild, quiet inside the cab...i haven't noticed any performance gains or mpg yet. i know...


pics and a video tomorrow sorry i didnt have a chance yet. the install was pretty easy, the hardest part was getting the stock exhaust out. overall i am happy with the system, i just wish it was a little louder, but its not ricey or raspy at all.

It will get a bit louder but not much. It is a nice mild tone I love mine.

i put it on this summer, but i havent really driven it much since ive been at school, its definaltey louder but its still not too loud. i think that really loud mufflers sound like crap and i dont want my truck sounding like a civic, so im happy with what i have. also i have the extreme dual exhaust which might be louder, i dont know.

I have the extreme duels, and I love it, just loud enough to sound good, but not annoying.

line of fire is no longer there, and new tires.


The dual extreme is sweet...if you get it...you wont regret it...unless you want a louder sound.
