I had my exhaust done yesterday and I'm very happy. The only thing I need to work on is a harmonic between 1500-1800RPM. That causes a minor rumble inside the car. I have sound and video I'll try to post tomorrow. The guys at AAA Exhaust are great.

Had my exhaust done a couple of days ago. Cost was $650.00 and AAA Exhaust was great. We tried three mufflers made by Custom Engineering. I picked the middle muffler in sound. They installed a crossover tube and I don't like tips so mine is tucked under. They said it takes 3-4 days before the true sounds breaks in. Not the best at pic's and video, but check out the links below.

I'll work on better sound bites. Tried with the cell phone out the window. No go. I'll get it. Sounds great under acceleration!

Fixed the links! The exhaust sounds fairly toned down! How are you liking it so far?

I was playing my stereo a lot less after I had the exhaust done. It fits my liking. Not to loud at normal speeds and sounds throaty under acceleration. At highway speeds, the exhaust is quiet. No drone. AAA did a great job.
