How is the sound level in the car. I do not need it quiet, but I do not want it super loud either.

I feel very confident that this set of straight pipes should last for at least 10 years and more than likely more. Stainless is better without a question but you could do it twice with aluminized. Sound would be the same. And allignment might be better cause it is so much easier to bend.
Went to another shop yesterday, he basically told me the same thing. Aluminized would be much more cost effective, won't discolor like stainless, going to last a long time and he'll warrantee it for three years.

He took a quick look and told me it would cost about $60 and take 1/2 hour to do. I think that might be a little under estimating since he didn't really get under there and see the bends he needs to make.

He has done something similar to a few Chargers and a Challenger.

I now have an appointment with these guys tomorrow

Right on. Seems like this is really starting to take off now. I have someone (another member) that is getting me some specs to modify the stock air intake. When I get it I will post a step by step video to modify and open up the air intake without spending 470.00. I cant wait as this is the obvious second part to the muffler delete.

Love the low pop while slowing. Drove on Interstate 90 mph no problem no drone.
Can you get us some pics and contact info for you muffler shop guy?

Wouldn't it be better even if you had to spend just a little more money to have one custom bent so that they can get the muffers centered or would copy of a previous install probably get you close enough?

I REALLY like this sound.... this is what i'm kinda looking for.... Something that rivals those loud ass V8 Vantage's that run down 405 all the damn time.

I really think you guys that have tried it all have come away with the exact same feeling......WOW! GM has this exhaust tuned perfect for the mod. Still trying to get the details on a CAI mod that uses the existing housing and mass flow sensors. I will post as soon as available or if you guys figure it out let me know.

Well it definately sounds a lot better, it does have some kackle if I downshift and let off the gas. But when I get into it, oh that's more like it
It isn't too loud, especially inside the cabin and when I took on the Interstate, (Windows up)I didn't notice any noise untill I was about 80 MPH around 2000 RPM in sixth, so I very happy with it.
It took an hour and 15 minutes and only cost me $63. So for the interim, well worth it for me. Figure I'm not out much money when I eventually get headers and if I have to redo the exhaust.

That cackle is just the sound of power and engine pressure when you lift it. it will grow on you when you hear your friends actually saying that is the part they really love. But like you I am thinking now what>

Just had mine done today...sounds really good guys!! Really nice!!

Friend has a 2002 with SLP exhaust and to me, it sounds very close...pops some when off the gas but nothing it didn't do before, just a bit louder now.

$125 is all I paid and that is with stainless pipes! Excellent mod...more than happy with it!
