So today I had my exhaust done. My father felt it was better to be seen and not heard, I on the other hand feel the opposite it is better to be heard then seen. So from the crossmember back was replaced. Originally it was to be from the manifolds back but the piping was still good and i wanted to save some coin. The rundown is no cats, glasspacks and turndowns. So here is some pictures and a short video.

Yeah, I kind of thought that there is an exhaust manifold leak also. I would need to hear it a little longer to be sure.

You guy amaze me.  

Manifold leak maybe.   You could hear that!  Crap.  I'm lucky to hear the rumble.

It sounded nice to me.  

I may have to start mine do a walk around and post the sound.  

Amazing people on this site!!!

I don't hear any leaks, meself....I think the audio from the cellphone may not be the best quality, and the location of it just gives the exhaust a little different noise. What I hear is the two sides burbling....
Also, if this thing still has a heat riser, that will effect the sound from the passenger side until it warms up, so you may be hearing the heat riser valve muffling the pulses from that side.


Either way...it sounds otay to me!Thumbs Up
