Myself (on more them one occasion), my father in law and a close friend had major issues with them. I will not go there again. One time they sold me a Magnaflow muffler but after it was installed I looked at it and it didn't have any markings, so I called them and they said it was definitely a Magnaflow. After some time it didn't sound right and I was not happy with it. I came to find out it was not a Magnaflow. It was Lou's version of a Magnaflow. The basically pulled the bait and switch. Charged me for one thing and installed something else. Total BS. Just be weary.

Re: Drone with Gibson

weird man, must be that location then , I go to Lou's in Brockton a couple times a year and have always received quality work from them. I just had them do a custom set of down pipes on my 5.9 and it came out sick . Sorry that you had a bad experience man

Re: Drone with Gibson

I have had my Gibson catback exhaust for 2 years and while I do have a little drone
at highway speeds, it is certainly not anywhere close to being 'unbearable'. It makes
the V8 come alive without being obnoxious or overbearing (and this is my first aftermarket exhaust on any vehicle that I have owned, so I was extremely sensitive
to anything too loud). I highly recommend it.

It was a pretty small shop so I could see everything they were doing through the door - they definitely used everything but the clamps. But I don't know anything about the quality of their work.

Hmm... I've heard nothing but good things about Lou's other than just now, so that's news to me.
Hey I went to Lou's in Reading because my stock muffler had a leak and they hooked me up with their "Signature Series" 3" muffler for $40 installed so I couldn't pass that up. Its definitely louder than stock though. Ive been looking to maybe get the Gibson setup, where in Medford are you? I work at the Boston Sports Club at Station Landing, maybe stop by for a second opinion and help me make my decision? haha i'll hook you up with a couple of guest passes to the gym.
