Default mufflers

ok since putting almost 2000 kms on my GXP im Happy with the bite but not so happy with the bite..

so off come the stock Bosal'* for a nice pair of Mach 28'* completely one piece stainless fiberglass packed mufflers.

they should give my GXP the bark to go with the bite.

whats everyone else swapping the stockers with ?

Wow ! Tired of them already??After 2000KM? After my lawyers stop stealing me blind And I get a license back... I'm gonna budget in an STS turbo and PCM Piggyback. Hope the exhausts holds up. When they go i'm probably switching to Corsa stainless.

plus i got video of the alt meter dancing from between 14.5 and 11.5 volts tonight !!!! i'll post it was doing it right after start up with heater on turned heater off went to 14.5 turned heater fans on full didnt move. so i dont think my volt problems the inverter.

*Ponders what a Shortstar would sound like with a Magnaflow*

Probably like a slightly more muscular and tuned bumblebee.

Hooker Headers Aero Chamber Mufflers
no fiberglass to burn out, the mufflers sound the same on my car now as they did 4 years ago when we put them on. nice deep low growl.
