Exhaust is done. I'll post a video after I've put a few miles on it. Sounds pretty good.

Just a quick update on the exhaust, I gained about 1/2 mpg( if I keep my foot out of it) and it feels like it gained a little power. Just seat of the pants dyno. Not saying it burns the tires in three gears now it anything like that, but it def accelerates a little easier. The install couldn't have been easier. Took my about an hr, start to finish, flat backing it in my shop. So far I'm very happy with it. Nice deep tone, without being too ricy, but it still sounds like a v6 when you get on it, but it is a v6, so it's fine with me.

Awesome. If you like it that's all that really matters.

I hope to get my exhaust done in 2014

I got the aluminized set up, not the stainless. The stainless was almost 600 bucks. You can get the same kit as mine from stage 3 motorsports for 360 with free shipping
