    I picked up a used Gibson exhaust on craigslist I got it for $130 came with the tip it was never put on by the previous owner. And even got a sticker. I put it on took about 35 mins was super easy sounds great. I like it alot, it doesn't drone at crusin speeds and when u step on it, it comes to life. Overall really happy with the product

    Any advice on installing the Gibson exhaust? No matter how much I tighten the hardware, it keeps coming loose and exhaust escapes out of the fittings. Makes a awful noise and effects the acceleration.

    I used a half inch electric dewalt gun to nail the bolts on good. Maybe use a medium strenght thread lock. I am not having any issues like that

    Try using some high temp gasket sealant. If that doesnt work, you'll more than likely have to get it welded.

    glad to hear they sound good on tacos, i had the 2.5" catback with the super turbo on my old 4cyl 99 mazda and it was too quiet, was a little better once i replaced the muffler with a flow 40
