Obviously I was already set on my deal so what could I do.. The tricky part is getting the rims off and having the car sit jacket up for 2-3 days....
Ya, thats the shitty thing about it...wish i had extra rims and tires while it gets powder coated. Thats usually expected going through the dealership right? Price jacked way up!

Does the Gibson axle back exhaust have a deep sound? I was thinking of a Borla.

Lol Step Brothers is an awesome movie!

You know what I like it so far.. It isn't too loud inside and has a nice deep growl to it.. It's an axle back so basically just cut after the axle and welds on to the pipe and you have a new muffler.. I got it for 250 stainless steel and it was 30 to install.. I have been waiting to do some videos but the weather here has sucked.. It's getting better each day as it breaks in.. And I will say the flow feels a lot smoother so much that my mpg went from like a 14.5 to 15.5 on the street.. It just feels like I don't have to give the gas as much to go.. I am happy with it.. Compared to the magnaflow and dyno max for 800 plus
