Nope. Returned it and bought a Thrush Glasspack...but haven't put that in either. Might just scrap the whole idea about the loud exhaust.

Very deep, just the drivers side door though. My finger nail runs along it perfectly and it went down to the primer. Looks like it's time to call the insurance company.

If you want to replace the muffler and have a subtle rumble and nothing obnoxiously loud- replace the stock muffler with a performance one closer in length.

For instance the OEM muffler on my 4.7 was I think 26" or 24" in length- so I replaced it with a magnaflow that's 24" or 22" and the drones not bad at all and she sounds great when you romp on it.

Sucks to hear your Wk got keyed, especially since you finally got everything installed and looking good.
