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?

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.

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.
