i finally got my exhaust on

it is a hillbanks roush performance duel exhaust. first off, i have to say it sounds alot better than i thought it would. second, it took me about 7 hours to do. the reason is, this is my first time doing an exhaust. i was by myself. and the ball flange wasn't big enough so i tride sanding it down with a dremal (thats all i had) after that didn't work, i brought it over to my friends dads shop. there, he tride heating it up, didnt work so we sanded the crap out of it. we took about 1/8" off.

the last thing i have to do is cut some of the pipe off so the tips dont stick out so mutch. and the left tip is a little sideways

on with the vids...

0-60 (that was my brother saying 60)

I am liking mine more and more everyday. I had new tailpipe extensions made and bent at a 45 degree angle, to me it looks alot better then it did with the tips behind the bumper.

I have had serveral complements about the looks of the oval tips at the angle they are at. I think it sounds better too?

Anyway....liking mine so far too! I know....need some pics......

I have heard that it sounds "deeper" when you have your pipes exiting at a 45* angle. But im sure its just because they are pointed more towards your ears vs the tailpipes straight out the back.
