I have this and I love it! My only problem was that the clamps that come with the kit to hold the exhaust together suck. I ended up getting some band exhaust clamps from napa that are the same as the one that holds the tip on. Good luck with the instal!

report back how you like it! i've been thinking about exhaust lately and the banks system has really been catching my eye.

Okay here's the deal with the kit. It is very easy to install. But as nobndry stated the clamps are s***. Banks recommends 35ft lbs of torque on them. But the welds on them crack at 20ft lbs. what they do is make it were the bolts go thru the clamp rolled steal. I am going to weld the pipes in tomorrow ran out of time tonite. Will post picks of the broken clamps tomorrow along with the finished product:D

I have this kit along with the Banks CAI- sound is pretty acceptable considering its a 6cl with exhaust... I am about to replace the CAI with a snorkel, so we will see what the sound does, but my only complaint with the kit is where the tip exits. I'm going to change mine so I don't pinch it shut on the first shelf I drive off...

Okay so the exhaust sounds pretty decent. It's not to loud which is just what I was looking for. It has a nice low rumble :2thumbsup:
