Used TSRM update

Well I bought it. I did my homework on doing the same thing with a new universal muffler (Apexi, 5zigen, Skunk2, Borla, yada, yada) and you can't even buy a name brand muffler for under $150. Also checked into how much it would cost to have the pipe work done if I did get a universal muffler, all the shops danced in the $50 to $100 range.

So finding out that it would cost me way more than he was asking for his custom piped TSRM swayed me to get it.

IT IS LOUD, omg is it loud! Great sound, felt the gain right away, did a say it is loud. Also in person these babies are huge, I knew they were big but damn.

I know some people would not get it but I said F it. Happy I did, I like it a lot and IMO I saved a lot of money.

Hope to have pics soon.

^^^ How did yours mount? I think because of the lack of a third hanger it does not mount right under the hole in the bumper, a bit low and off center.

^^^ Well I don't know, I bought mine from a club member that had already done it so I don't know first hand what it sounds like with the resonator.

All I can say is its damn loud, I'm sure its louder than the orginal version.


Xrage,
Thats about how mine looks too, I had to add a pipe strap to the rear cross member to hold it up more than the hangers do on there own. That helped a ton on centering it up, still a little to the left but I'm fine with that.
