      I thought the price was a bit expensive, after opening container, i was thinking OK, install looks easy. Had to replace rear hanger. Removing old exhaust took thirty minutes, had to cut forward hanger. With old system out, the install was simple, loose fit was spot on. This system is very nice. heavy grade stainless, good, easy clamps. I think now price is good. Exhaust note and volume are just right for me. durability should be very good. Thirty minutes on install. Really smart purchase.
