Never heard of it. Spend the extra $30-40 and get a flowmaster

Stay away from the word "Kit" If you want the dual look just get a "Single in" "Dual Out" muffler and have a muffler shop run the pipes and tips for you. Still might be lookin at 200-300 though with the tips and what not.

Look for the location of your gas tank and what it's made of. On mine, it's in front of the driver's side rear tire and it's made of plastic. If yours is the same and you run a pipe underneath it, you may have an issue.

raptors suck

i had one for a short while cuz i got it for free and i had no exhaust.....

sounded stock until higher RPMs.....even then it wasn't very loud

if youre looking for sound....go with flowmaster or magnaflow
well worth the extra money

Just dump it after the muffler before the axle. I think it sounds better and its the cheapest route. I used to be into the fancy stuff but I hated keeping it clean lol
