you might want to keep the muffler in case you want to sell the car, alot of people might not like the extra noise.

good idea.....

Ugh, took it in and they said they need it overnight for the different size that the flowmaster is compared to the original.

Most aftermarkets are smaller than stock. A little tweaking on the hangers, and they have to extend the intermediate pipe to reach. Extensions on both outlets, too.

Zoom, zoom!

Did you get a high flow cat or a stocker? Glad to hear the sound is more performance oriented and cant wait to hear them myself

They look very nice. How much does it cost to have a new exhaust installed?

you dont need the full exhaust as the pipes are mandrel bent anyways, all you need is the hiflo muffler and cat.
