Ha got my new muffler installed yesterday and now it sounds only reasonably loud. I wont feel like a jerk driving through my neighborhood at night when i take the Roush out. I dont take it work because of the "noise pollution" damn HOA. but now i might!

Question: Kicker DS68 or Kicker KS68? DS$80 for 4, KS 100ish for 4. I can swing either, but I want best sound I can get for roughly $100.

LOL no i'm trying to make my car quieter. No Race Exhaust for me. My exhaust set up was 4-1 Race Header, gutted cat, resonator, then i tried 4-1 race header, resonator, resonator. So now im on 4-1 Race Header, Muffler, resonator. It sounds way better to me. I got tired of the noise warnings so i stopped driving it for a while. But now i think i should be fine.

I understand what the lunchbox is :P I did that on my tibby. I wasn't sure if you personally welded it, or if u had someone else do it. and if you did something special since the exit is at an angle from the lunchbox inlet.
