Good point....the more I thought about it today the less excited I was about doing it. I called a local muffler shop called Muffit in League City and they quoted $60-$125.

So I got my dynomax exhaust system installed today......holy crap it sounds amazing but I agree it does have a drone. When the trans shifts into a higher gear and rpms are low it is overwhelming. Taking what others on the forum have said I adjusted my driving habits and I'm pleased with the system. No doubt this is an aggressive sounding exhaust....but it sounds great!

I'd also like to mention that if you're planning to do the install yourself I'd think twice if you've never done it. The shop I took it to had a little trouble getting everything to lineup. These guys have 29 years experience and even sell dynomax. Maybe I was unlucky and received an odd ball but I watched these guys tinker with it until it lined up nice and straight.


Thanks jeepgrage!
