Im torn...I originally was going to do an x-pipe just after the headers and a true-x magnaflow muffler 2.25" all the way back, but the more I hear how it sounds currently, the more I'm thinking against this idea. If the dyno doesn't show at least a 15hp gain, I'll do the exhaust.

Its actually quieter than a PE. My cell phone mic must boost the sound somehow. If I deleted the resonator I think it would be as loud as the PE and as dynamic, possibly louder. But that isnt something I want. I've always said I want a quiet exhaust.

Good luck on the headers. They were surprisingly easy to install with 2 people. I was expecting a headache, but it took us 4 hours flat even with the beer breaks.
