put your hand up if you got true duals

*hands up*

Wow the power difference is amazing for something so "simple". I'm not 100% sure about the sound so the muffler guy is going to put on some Magnaflows instead of the flowmasters later on...

The muffler shop guy told me it was a PITA to do lol I'm still amazed at the power increase. Must be at least 15hp (out of my butt) without the cats and better pipe-work.
