I have a single gibson exhaust on my fx4 lvl 2 and it sounds great, but not obnoxiously loud or like a rice-rocket. Its a nice deep powerful sound. It is suppossed to add 15-20 HP too.

Have you ever heard a borla on a ranger? And my borla costed me about 200 bucks. Sounded way better than my flow.

Thats cause your buying it straight out. I bought the muffler, and went to a shop and did it custom.

Vid doesnt do it justice. It sounded great.


EDIT: your gonna need a good sound system. Small speakers sound like crap

if you want hp, go with magnaflow, if you want sound go with flowmaster. Free flowing echaust will give u the most hp. Now flowmaster is good because it holds back the first 3k rpm so u wont spin your tires. same technology they have been using for the last 20 yrs.. Magnaflow will give you hp, tq, gas milage, sound.

Why do you not like Gibson so much, Leo? Not saying I don't believe you, just wondering why...
