The parts collection has begun. MBRP turn down kit. Picked this up today for a killer deal.





That will be less restrictive!



Thats all for now!

Couldn't wait to hear the exhaust, so i ditched the stock one and bolted up my MBRP. It is coated in header paint to reduce the rust. (southern ontario is salt capital when its just cold out)

Love the sound!!! its pretty loud, but no drone and at idle its very quiet.

Stock (for sale)


Stock Vs MBRP. 2" vs 2.5" tube.


Coated them in header paint.

your stock exhaust sounds louder and overall better? Do they need to be broken in like flowmaster's or is it just the video?
