Ghl exhaust install

Other than shearing off one of the Allen bolts holding the spoiler assembly and having to back that out success on installing my exhaust. What a great DIY for a beginner to novice. It was great crawling around and seeing the back end of the car without heat shield and bumper etc.

The exhaust sounds fantastic. Yes drone like crazy around 2500 to 3000 rpm but it doesn't bother me. All of my cars have been loud and to ghl exhaust sounds fantastic. I just saved 2000 by not getting a new fabspeed as this was given to me with the car and is in great condition. Also saved a couple hundred bucks and learned quite a bit by installing it myself. Very proud moment for me.

Well, glad I didnt sell this exhaust. I really like the noise. But, for anyone doing a search, the one things I will tell you on this. The Drone is absolutely TERRIBLE. There is no way my wife will be getting in this car. It is hard to tell what the actual exhaust really sounds like between 2500 and 3000 rpm. you can feather the throttle a bit, change gears etc, but at one point my head started buzzing from all the drone. IF I take this out and go with a fabspeed at some point, I will not put this back up for sale...I will simply hang it on a wall or something.

I dont mind the noise, but I will be the only one willing to tolerate it. Shame really...
