Nice sound but must be loud inside the cab.

it's not much loud inside the cab, because, the exhaust is outwards, so the soundwaves don't echo under the cab.( but it's sure, the sound is more important than the original exhaust )

Do you notice much more economy or power ?

Just had Genie extractors fitted and the rear muffler was replaced by a 14x9 Magnaflow muffler then had the expansion chamber replaced with a mini Redback flow thru muffler to tone it down a bit (did not like it not too loud, getting old)
Went for a 300 km drive yesterday to test it out and most of the Kms was on the highway (100-110kmh zone) although I kept to about 100 kmh with about 20kms in city traffic.
Was very happy with the result. Noticed how well the car handled the hills better and fuel usage was 22.8 litres for the trip. Best money spent.

The underside of the rear shocks often rub, because they are very exposed:

you should drill some holes in them. it is a perfect placer for mud to collect.
Good idea :thumb:
