Yikes - 4-5 hours to complete with 2 1/2 hours to cut off the lunchbox - what the hell are you guys using, your wife's nail file? I guess we 08' owners are lucky. I started my lunchbox delete this evening at 8pm and had completed two test drives by 10pm. And I started at 8pm by going to Autozone to get the parts! The actual lunchbox delete, with parts at home (18" flex pipe 2" ID w/ included Ubolt, 1 extra Ubolt and muffler cement), took no more than 45 minutes.

I have no idea how the lunchbox is positioned on other years and models but on the 08' Sedan it was no problem to just raise the left rear, crawl under and with two cuts of my sawzall the lunchbox was on the ground (5 minutes maybe). I like Derek Zoolander above retained my stock 3" chrome tip (thanks for the help DZ). So it was just a matter of doing a nice job joining the tip to the remaining pipe and that's that.

So did I notice any difference. I'm liking it. It does give a nice short little rumble when it starts now. My Steeda SRI already gave the stock exhaust a nice sound so I'm having a hard time judging any difference. Is it louder? No, not in the car under normal driving conditions. But jump on it and yeah I'm thinking I hear a little more than before. I'll have to get some more time on the stick before I pass final judgment.

Overall a quick easy mod (while I guess if you have on 08' and a sawzall it's quick). I like others did it just for something to do while waiting for a full exhaust. I want a Magnaflow 2 1/2" stainless, but they don't have it in production yet for the 08'.
