Cincinnati area... I live in NKY Alexandria. Magnaflow is in perfect condition I just would like to go back to the quitness of the stock exhaust. We could meet at a nearby carx (they removed my old stock exhaust and installed the magnaflow for $70). If you have a shop or nice garage with tools I will trade straight up if you agree to do the work. Pm me if interested

I did the same things as you. It will blow your mind how much quieter the car is afterward. Enjoy the low end you will now have back again.

I heard the sound clip online, it sounds pretty wild. To me, it's kinda like having the gutted airbox, but only that sound all the time instead of just at 3000rpm.

LapisLazuli6 is driving a long way to do the trade Monday so its his unless something comes up. I'm pretty sure the v6 a v4 exhausts wont line up but I could be wrong never have checked.

I'm driving 500 miles to get this thing. I called Rosenthal service and parts and asked just about every question you can think of on the phone. It will not fit the V6, no.

Can't wait to get it done. Although I'm going to be a zombie from driving about 1200 miles within 3 days, it'll be worth it. ;)

Now for the (possible) drop and the RX-8 rims...

This is Awesome, I drove 12 hours total in one day to buy a Arctic Cat F7 snowmobile i really wanted. Man when we men want something we will do anything for it!! HAHA

And by the way you will love the magnas! I think they sound sweet, dont really care for the fitment out the back but all and all very happy!

Yeah that's something I was thinking about when I was looking at my car the other day. But later on down the road, I want to turbo the car so an exhaust upgrade for this good a deal isn't getting passed by.

How much more power does it give, like 4-5hp I think? I thought I read that on their site...

exhausts on a 6 give too minimal a gain to be of any notice. they can take away low end torque, however...

This is what I have been told as well. Oh well, the sounds worth it
