Haha it's like having a coke can on there by the size of it. But it's def not like a cherry bomb. Mine has depth and tone, not like the sound of a$$ that usually comes out of a cherry bomb, IMO.

So, it might be monday before I get this thing on.
Stinks that you can't get it put on, like now. But If you can save near $100, I would definitely wait too.

The guy charged me $110 plus tax to get mine put on. So it was like right at $120 for it to be done, not bad.

I plan on monday, if things dont change. It requires a lot of custom bends.

The guy said that he was going to fit it up next to the frame. Hey, its small enough, and it wouldnt be visible.

That sounds alot like mine. The muffler guy put the 10 series like right next to the frame and had to custom bend all the pipes. It only took him about an hour and half to two hours to finish it. He put 2.5" out, which I like. I only had 2.25" pipes on there before when I had the dual exit out the back.

Well the guys who quoted me around $200 are crazy fast at exhaust work. It would have taken them maybe 20 minutes, and they do a great job......but I aint shelling out $200 bucks.

The other folks said that it would take about an hour to 1 1/2 hours, so that sounds about right.


Oh yeah and I just thought about something. When I had the entire dual out custom catback system installed, it only ran me $180. That included: All of the exhaust piping (which ran out the back)
The custom bending
Welding of the muffler
3 inch stainless tips

This thing sounds GREAT at higher rpms. It has plenty of throat.

Drones like crazy on the highway though, but I HARDLY do any highway driving.

Dude, it looks sweet! I am glad you like it. Heck yeah it has throat. I have been turning heads around campus lately with sound of this set up, haha.

But I would have to agree, it does drone like crazy on the highway lol. But I don't mind.
