Catback-exhaust

I took a gamble for 229.00 shipped. In the notes it said may need modification,which it did. It is actually 100% stainless but if you don't have access to grinders welders and know how to fab stuff don't buy it. I had to R&R the mid pipe mounts they were way off, tweek the muffler mounts, throw away the pipe clamps and get different ones,fabricate mounting bracket for the tail pipes.
The sound is throatier than my UUC when in low RPMs and when you get on it. It opens up and is quite a bit louder, all in all for the price not bad. I will just have to see how it holds up.

Miltek CatBack Exhaust

I just removed my CatBack exhaust so I could have a more hearing aide friendly drive across the USA. After using it for the last 2 years I can say without a doubt that the catback system sure does add to low end torque and a quicker spool time. I was sort of amazed at the result of the removal.

My hearing aides are thanking my but my grin meter is not

When we get back from the trip I will probably put it back on to help the grin meter response
