    That's awesome because I was looking for a deep sound. Headers are next for me too. Thinking QTP or Kooks.

    I'm thinking about installing it myself. Is this something I could realistically do with no experience?

    All I would need is jack stands and the exhaust is all bolt-on, right? Any cutting/welding?

    Shops around here are quoting $200 - $300. Total rip off. I would really like to do it myself just to get some experience. I think I'm going to try with some from friends.

    That sounds like a header install price... If so that is not a bad price, but you might still wanna do it yourself for the experience.

    If you are talking catback install, do it yourself definately, takes like an hour with basic tools and a pair of ramps.

    Good luck, you will like the Magnaflow sound.

    That's what I thought too. I decided to install it myself. Looks easy but I need some pointers. See this thread: Catback install question

    Huh thats wierd... In your first post the rwo dif cat backs you showed links to. E}The cheeper one is a pic of the v6 cat back im almost positive. Im sure if you orderd you would get the right one but the pic is not right LOL. I just built headers and custom ORY for a guy with that same cat back he had clearance issues and wanted custom headers. Well anyway doesnt matter justFYI anyone that reads this thread later
