Re: Gibson Exhaust ORDERED

I will have some clips made this weekend for you guys. I actually had made one last night using my GoPro Hero however dumb me was covering the mic as I drove, so the sound is completely muffled.

I have the Volant CAI on my car too. So far here is what I notice.... The intake sounds more alive with the Gibson exhaust. It helps make up for the quietness the exhaust has at 3,500+ RPM. I've noticed with both bolted on that the car has an improved throttle response. I have a previous thread on JG which talks about the "kickdown" not working on my WK2. This system combination seems to clear that up!

Re: Gibson Exhaust ORDERED

Anxiously awaiting the highway report...that is the biggest potential issue for me.

Re: Gibson Exhaust ORDERED

I just found a $25 rebate on Gibson exhaust while seaching around for the best price on this kit.
http://a.cdnbrm.com/images/prm/rebat...2-12-31-12.pdf

So far the best I've found is $442.95 for the stainless kit shipped from AutoAnything.com. Anyone else find it cheaper?

Re: Gibson Exhaust ORDERED

Honestly, I would be shocked if it does have highway drone.

Haven't several members reported switching out their stock rear-most mufflers for aftermarket and having terrible drone? It seems like the Gibson kit does basically this...hope I'm wrong though!

Those with the drone replaced the center muffler with an xpipe like the Dynomax. This kit just replaces the rear resonators so I'm hoping leaving the center section alone will keep it drone free.
