Gibson Exhaust ORDERED

Hey Guys,

Just ordered my Gibson Exhaust (Axel back) for my 5.7 Overland WK2.

Should be in sometime next week, be ready for exterior/interior sound clips.

Any special requests when installing it, or when I make the video?

-James

Re: Gibson Exhaust ORDERED

Special requests? no dubstep.




Seriously though, we all appreciate you taking the risk! Can't wait to hear this thing, much closer to my budget.

Re: Gibson Exhaust ORDERED

dubstep... psshhh
How about some Sade? hahaha
On a serious note, I have a mic with a wind sock on it which I plan to use, to help really get the exhaust note. Maybe some GoPro shots too?
Personally, I really hope for a nice smooth note without drone. I've had my WK2 for two weeks now and I can't stand the little noise it puts out. I feel like im in my old Prius again!
I was debating on either the Corsa Exhaust or the Borla CB system. However I didn't want to shell out a ton of money only to have a rice-rocket sounding Jeep.
According to Gibson the aluminized and stainless steel systems they offer are identical in terms of sound and output. I went ahead and ordered the aluminized one since I live in socal and I never have snow/salt/mud/water to worry about rust or corrosion that would otherwise compromise the longevity of the system…. If this WK2 is lucky it might see a weekend up in the moutains, but that’s really it.

I would like to see what it looks like with the clamps on where the cut is made.

Ah bummer. Well hopefully you'll have a big brown box at your door when you get home.
