So does this mod basically remove the second (and last) muffler then replace it with a straight pipe to the exhaust tip?

IMO this mod is one of the better mods that make it sound like you have custom exhaust done but its WAY cheaper.

By adding a tip it looks nice also.

The axle over is 2.25 right into the tip.

Finally got around to taking one. Sorry for the delay brother.

I painted my pipes with VHT. You can see all the way to the right the hanger mount where the muffler used to hang.



The "lunch box" muffler BEAST!

Thanks. The audio is from RED however. I think he mentioned $65 for his. My favorite muffler shop had me fixed up in 15 min for $37. Plus the tip I purchased off eBay for $17. So that's $54 for me. I LOVE the way it sounds!!! I favor it over the FSWerks actually. I HATE a raspy ricey exhaust grumble and pop. This is all low and throaty. If it wasn't for the performance side of things, I'd just stick with this. But she'll do for now. Thanks again RED for taking the first steps!!!
