Default Just installed the dumps

I stopped by a local exhaust shop today after pulling my buddies busted escourt to his house (in the truck of course) and got some turndowns.

Man is it alot louder Before when I would tape it wouldn't be that loud in the cab and people would ask about it... that isn't gonna be a problem anymore.

Not only is it louder inside, its ALOT louder outside at WOT.

Surprisingly, with the magnaflows, at crusing speed (close to 3k RPM) its not loud at all, sounds almost exactly like it did before with the catback (so its not annoying on the highway) but open it up and wow.

The idle is alot different too. It has that deep boom boom sound now that it didnt before.

Dumps FTW! All I have to do now is figure out how to hang just the magnaflow tips without the pipes so the rearend doesn't look retarted.

At crusing its acutally about the same volume as before, its only loud at WOT and right at idle.

I went to a local exhaust shop, asked for 2.5" turndowns, and the guy just bent them to shape right there on a flowmaster machine. Took him about 5 min, and they charged me 20 bucks.

I am going to attempt to hang my magnaflow tips back on the car without the catback itself.
