    force II cat back - flowmaster....I am thinking of getting this exhaust. Only 189.00 from summit. I have read some posts about it and it seems like a killer solution to my still bone stock setup. How do these sound? Should I do this bolt on or take it to a shop and have them do it? I have heard re-routing the pipes to tuck them up and out of harms way is good. Anyone done this? 'How much did it cost you? What would I need to bring into a shop for them do do it for me? Just some exhaust questions....Oh yeah will I feel a difference when I get it put on? I am keeping the original exhaust manifold on...later

    I jsut put one of these systems on about a month ago and I absolutely love it. I installed it myself and it is really easy. It took me about a half an hour to do. It has a nice deep throaty tone but it's not loud enough to bug you on the highway. You do feel a difference after you put it on, mostly while pulling hills or accellerating hard. It's not a huge difference but definitely noticeable. If I ever need to do another exhaust, I won't hesitate to get another one.

    I am working on putting mine on today. I also got a Catco converter. Total price was $309 and change shipped to my door. And yes I got it all from Summit Racing.

    So far it has not been that bad of a job. The only bad part is I found out today that I will have to drop the trans cross member. If you plan to keep the Y pipe you have you might have to do the same thing. If you have an air chisel (sp) you probably will not have to drop it. What I am doing is splitting the inlet pipe on the converter to remove it. I will put a post in when I am finished with it. BTW I only have an hour or so a day during the week to work on it so that is why it is taking so long. It sucks working second shift when you want to get things done.
