    most people say its harder to get the stock one off then to get the aftermarket on but i think most people can do it in about 2 hours

    the magnaflow catback isnt too bad. I did it one night after work. You will have to cut the factory exhaust to get it off...think I cut mine in two places. Far as the install, an extra set of hands to hold everything in place while you line everything up would be helpful. You can do it alone though...just might take you a couple of times to get it setting like you want it.

    just cut the stock somewhere in the curve over the axle . . . other than that pretty easy. i have the dual dual tips and took many times to adjust to exactly how i wanted them.

    bump?

    i wouldn't call GTs slow, but they are the same weight and have 50 less horsepower, 30 less torque.
