Just installed exhaust!

I've been waiting to get an exhaust, searching and researching for the best mfg and deals.

I finally settled on MBRP 4" SS Turbo Back with Cat delete.

I LOVE IT! A friend and I installed it yesterday. It took about 3 hours, but I have zero experience with auto/diesel work, so I was pretty much a spectator and gofer. I think if you've ever done anything like it, it could have been completed in under two hours.

The MBRP system arrived neatly packaged with all the necessary pieces.

It fit like a dream, pleanty of clearance in all areas, and it looks sharp!

It sounds great too. I like it because it's fairly tame sounding at idle, so it won't frustrate the neighbors too bad. But, if you romp it, it sounds mean!

I don't have much info on mpg or power or egt improvements, but I'm sure they're in line with everyone elses findings. My main goal was egt lowered, improved looks, and killer sound! I'm confident this system has/will meet all those goals.

SO, I HIGHLY recommend the MBRP kits!

Also, if you want a great deal on one, contact Tony Wildman (twildman) here on the forum. He gave me a great deal, and has been a pleasure to work with. I'm positive I will continue to do business with him in the future.

Have fun,

Daryl
