    Ditto.....I LUV these headers, and the mufflers too. They sound great!! I too have the entire Kooks system. Well worth the price. The one thing I'd suggest though is that after you get it delivered to you, then send the headers out to get ceramic coated. Kooks used to have them coated, but that's when it was mandatory since they used to make them from mild steel (which is what I got). Now they make them w/Stainless steel, but the heat will still change the color of headers even if they are stainless steel.

    You will be incredibly pleased! Wait to see you dyno numbers soar....

    One note though! Get a new set of COPPER collector gaskets from Summit, or elswhere, as the paper ones will blow out after several hard WOTS. They are only like $5 for the pair, and even Nick will attest to the paper ones being not so good.

    When you get everything installed, and your out goofing....find a tunnel...you must find a tunnel, or enclosed overpass. Get on it hard, and you'd swear you were in a NASCAR!!!

    You do that too? I luv doing that. And I agree. this exhaust system makes the Marauder sound mean, and when you hit the trottle in a tunnel, or under a bridge, it's plain amazing!!!

    LOL, I think Shooter is going to blast everyone outta their beds when he drives by neighborhoods at night!!! And to answer the question posed, NO, I haven't done anything at all w/the tailpipes. They're stock from the factory. My car sounds fine.

    It looks like one of the members from a band called "Clan-A-Drumma" or something close to that.

    And the old Scot warriors did more than just a haircut to demoralize their opponents.

    I have the 'delete' tips, and it's still has a gentle rumble when idling. However, my wife says she can hear it some 100' to the house, in the upstairs bedroom, with the windows closed. I think the sound is deceiving, and carries further than one might imagine just standing next to the car.

    Another fun thing to do is to down shift. Particularly when someone is watching, or an LEO is in the lane next you drooling over your ride!
    When approaching a light or exit, I will turn off the OD off at about 60 or so, giving the throttle a little blip just as the gear change is made. Again at precisely 46 mph, I drop into 2nd, and blip again just as it is preparing to kick in.....the results are the old school crackle & pop of glasspacks that only the KOOKS can reproduce.

    It turns heads, and the LEO's drool even more....

    Barry, that's funny. I thought I was the only one who did it to impress like that. I usually roll into my neighborhood in first gear too... and let it engine brake down the hills
