4.7 V8 Gibson Cat Back
 
Hey guys, i just ordered a Gibson Cat Back for my 4.7... just wondering if any of you installed that system by yourselves or got it done by a muffler shop?

it looks like its a bolt on application so i should be able to do it at my buddy's house but if anyone had minor complications along the way with installing this same application a little heads up would be nice...

thanks!

I installed my magnaflow in my driveway with the help of my brother. I only needed ramps and a socket set to do it

I had a Magnaflow originally and switched to a Flowmaster 50. Too much drone on the Magnaflow. Curious how the Gibson sounds.

yeah, ive heard nothing other than good things about the Gibson system. I'm not looking for a loud exhaust but more of a tuned sound...

for those of you who dont know, this exhuast will be complimenting my AFE state 2 CAI, Super Chip power programmer set to Performance Tune and a ported Throttle Body.

I installed mine in my garage at 2am. No ramps, no jacks. Took a little over an hour. Hardest part is removing the old exhaust. Very simple and sounds great.

Happy Easter!

x2

I used ramps just to give myself more room to work with. I had to cut the old one out as it was rusted on pretty good.

I basically have the same set up as you but with the Hemi. You will love the Gibson, sounds great and Zero drone. Although I will say I wish it were a little louder.
