I enjoyed the lunchbox delete for what it is and I'm ready for a catback. How involved is the RMM sonic? That is also on my radar of mods.

Five bolts... Helps if you have a pneumatic impact gun to break the big bolt running through the center of the RMM but a good breaker bar would work. Maybe 20 minutes or so. I would recommend getting the Mazda bolt.

So UPS guy shows up on monday and I had already had the stock piping cut out and laying on the floor. I was hoping he would not miss the delivery. Install went smooth, took me and my brother about and hour and it was in and lined up nicely. I must say when it is cooler out the tone is much sweeter than normal daytime temps. Overall I am pleased with the sound and the improved response. I am taking a trip to Nebraska(Go Big Red) from Texas in 2 weeks, will get a chance to compare mileage vs stock exhaust. Top quality product that exceeds my expectations and I am picky. Way to go FS Werks. Once I can get the video off my phone I will put something up.


At Sonic, sweet idea on the RACECAR exhaust exit on your ride, looks the business.

Mine probably would have waited if I hadn't gotten such a screaming deal on it from Meattooth.
I live in east Texas and I have seen several flowmasters rusted out. If you want chambered go thrush, same basic design half the price, you will replace it in a couple years because it will be rusted out. I have just about made up my mind on a stainless steel magnaflow.
