Re: Gibson Exhaust ORDERED

Cool, man! Can't wait to see some pics and hear some clips when you get the chance!
Are the tips bigger than stock (diameter)?

Re: Gibson Exhaust ORDERED

Pics & Video will be coming soon.. The only pictures I have handy are on my blackberry and they are less than sufficient. So I will be taking more pictures this evening for you guys.

Improved throttle response? Im going to keep an eye out, so far i've just been in traffic and have not had the ability to really open her up.

Highway speeds... Again I have only been in city traffic. *My office is only 2 miles away from my house []* I am going to try tonight and take her out on the freeway, otherwise all the footage will be taken this weekend.

Right on, keep us updated. This seems like the optimal exhaust for many based on price and sound.

Re: Gibson Exhaust ORDERED

Okay here we go! Pictures first! The exhaust comes in stainless steel or aluminum. Both emit the same exhaust tone, fyi.






Now after the install I wasn't a big fan of all the aluminum piping that was visible. I wanted something that no one would know was installed. So I went ahead and used some Duplicolor Engine low gloss black and did this:

Re: Gibson Exhaust ORDERED

Great write up!! I too am awaiting sound clips. Where did you order the exhaust from?

Re: Gibson Exhaust ORDERED

Exhaust looks great! One question with those who have the Volant CAI installed (like I do) ... since we already hear a decent difference under load which is really nice...will this enhance that sound, or will we get nothing out of this exhaust?
