It sounds great... not as loud as I thought it would be. Has a nice deep tone to it. Got to admit though... I thought Magnaflow wouldn't sound the greatest - I went with them just 'cause I liked the look of the mufflers/tips better than anything else. I stand corrected though - I'm VERY happy with the way it sounds.

Got the titanium coating done at Top Gun Coatings... I'm sure any powder coating place would do it.

Looks very good! How are the performance gains? Can you feel the difference? Oh yeah, and could u give a ball park on how much the exhaust set you back, J pipe and all?

Cost.... it wasn't cheap! this is all in cdn$... $350 for mufflers, $200 for resonators, $450 labor, $500 misc. parts (piping, mandrel bends...) and $400 for titanium coating. I think I got bent over the table a bit, but looking at the quality and sound, I think it was worth it.
Performance is definitely up too, but I just installed the V2 and went from 88 - 92 octane in the last two weeks too - third gear pulls are awesome! I'd like to get it dyno'd soon, but I have no baseline to go by.

Thats $1900 for exhaust. Well, a little pricey for my taste, ok, actually too tasty for me but it seems like it was money well spent. That exhaust will sure last you a LONG time. Very clean set-up, I like it Awesome job man

well you're thinking of US Dollars....that's $1900 CDN, $1500 USD

pretty expensive, but if you're happy with it and I'm sure you are, enjoy your setup.
