Red face $200 to have 3" piping run from cats to my new 14834

steep, but i had a huge boner for the muffler and had it done. Sounds like a boat, he said it'll break in and change quite a bit...

After 2000 miles my exhaust is about half as loud as it was when i first put it on. A bit less bass. I kinda liked the noise since there was sound but no drone.
As long as it doesnt sound like an import with a coffee can fart pipe.....
