It's been 2 weeks since I ordered them and finally got them installed (4-5 days apart). The intake came first; I put it on myself. I really like the way it howls. THe exhaust is still out to the jury (no decision yet). I'm told it will change. It's a bit louder, but I've never heard anything that sounds like this. The good thing is that it doesn't drone or sound too loud. It could be a skosh louder though. I guess I'm just getting picky now that I'm middle aged.

Did anyone who installed after-market exhaust disconnect the battery ( so it will learn the new set-up quicker)? I didn't for either install.

Didn't disconnect the battery on mine. Car seemed to learn of the new airflow availability pretty quickly. Like almost instantaneously. Wouldn't worrry about it.

I finally figured out what the Magnaflow exhaust sounds like to me; a high performance 4-stroke outboard boat motor.

It's been 2 days now. Still sounds the same.

Maybe it sounds better FROM the outside. My neighbor says it sounds great to him.
