MBRP cat-back installed today

I finally got around to installing my exhaust today. It's the polished stainless single exit. I'm up in NY so I wanted the extra protection from the salt. The box has been sitting in my garage for a couple weeks, arrived in perfect condition so I didn't open it until today. Turns out they forgot the exhaust tip ! Hopefully the vendor will correct this. Installation was pretty straight forward once I got the stock exhaust off. Had to run out for new nuts and bolts, for the money they should supply them. The sound is just what I was looking for, nice growl when started then settled into a nice mellow rumble. Only drove a few miles but interior is only slightly louder than stock unless you're on it and I didn't notice any drone up to 60mph. Try to get some pics up tomorrow, maybe a YouTube sound clip.

Did you get 304 or 409 stainless?

Attention environmentalists, reduce emissions from this:

I went with the T304. Hopefully it will hold up better than the stock exhaust.

Not that I could notice at all. The pipes are only 3" which is one reason I picked this system, I heard of a lot of guys losing low end with larger pipes due to less back pressure I would guess.

I am not liking what they are doing with that Y pipe in front of the muffler. I am sure the whole thing is much better than stock though.

I love mine. The more you break it in the better it sounds, best bang for your buck. Had mine for a year now

That's good to hear. I finally got to hear it from outside the truck, had my wife take it in a big loop around the mall parking lot. Really happy with the sound and performance seems unchanged to me. Curious to hear how it sounds when towing the trailer, hopefully won't bad in the cab.

My muffler guy told me that if anybody goes bigger than 3" it usually cause they 500hp+, so good choice.
