X-Pipe Installed (YouTube Videos/Sound)

My birthday gift came in a few days early and I had it installed this morning. The sound is a little louder and, IMO, much better. Made a before and after sound videos and you can hear the difference; it is even more pronounced 'live' and when I'm driving. Overall, I am very happy with the results … here are the links to the videos:

Sounds nice! What type is it? Is it resonated?

It's the aluminumized steel one from JEGS; didn't go with the stainless because I live in a very dry climate and really don't have to worry about rust. It is non-resonated and is sized to basically the same length as the OEM resonator it replaces. Took the shop a little over 30 minutes to install (from pulling it up on the rack to pulling it off).

Thanks all, appreciate the comments. Forgot to mention one of the best comments I got all day. After putting the X-pipe on, the mechanic came in and said, "man that is one awesome car, you've done a great job with it"

That sounds really nice and not too overpowering with the noise.

Had a chance to take it up on the interstate this morning and really open it up. Going from around 10mph to 80mph up the on ramp it sounded awesome; a nice, loud, but not unbearable roar. Once on the interstate and cruising for a minute or so at various speeds between 55mph-90mph there was no noticeable drone, just a nice low 'rumble' that was music to my ears. Very happy with going with the X-pipe and thankful for a wife who tells me to get what I want for my cars as my birthday gift.
