Very nice, indeed! Ironically, I was listening to that exact link the other day while trying to decide which system to put on my new to me black '95 LWB "thumper." I already have NRP on my white '95 LWB "Bambi," but I didn't feel like dropping a grand on it. Cat-back Magnaflow for $400 fits the bill.

Sounds good at idle but..... I've run flowmasters before on other vehicles. The drone at cruise speeds will be a curse in due time. Most likely you'll end up adding some sort of resonator to quiet it down or swap it for anything that doesn't give you a migraine at 2000 rpms.

X2. At highway speed and long trips it is tiring in a 90.

That will give him a chance to raise the end of that pipe. Its so low the first curb at a mall will take it off...

Here's my old Borla.

http://youtu.be/HkN_rRhNycM

"New" Borla after new cat-back exhaust installed back in 2012 I think. Sounds better than this when not inside a cramped garage. Plus I think I had an exhaust leak at a weld that I had repaired after the vid.

My problem is parking blocks...with the new flex sway bar on the rear axel I clear curbs much easier!
