This may be my first major external mod come tax time (I also want a spoiler on my car and get rid of these steelies).

Love the look of that exhaust on your car, the car should have come from the factory like that!

So sorry fellas. I got back then moved into a new house. Now I'm having knee surgery tomorrow. Just to make matters worse, I hit a dog on the highway last week and really damaged the front end. It will cost over $2300...ouch!

Ha ha, yes it was a bad day. My father would have been 88 that day (he passed away in Jun) and then I received a call from the doctor's office on the results of an MRI on my right knee and I tore my ACL. It will require reconstructive surgery. As I said, it was a BAD day.

Did you take the exhaust / car to the body shop first to get everything lined up?

No. I simply went to the body shop who made the appropriate measurements and cut the holes. It's up to the exhaust shop to align and fit rather than vice versa. If the muffler shop is good, they can handle it.

I really want that setup. Does it sound pretty deep? I have listened to a lot of sound clips I'm looking at a 2.5in headerback exhuast wih a magnaflow Camero muffler with dual 2.25in exits. I'm just conscerned it will be too loud.

Is deep but not loud, you can hear it far away but is not like a Honda, LOL. Only difference is mine is 3" and the engine runs a bit more power.

I plan to just run basic bolt ons . Looking for a deep aggresive tone but not excessively loud.
