It had a terrible drone to it so we installed a 12" resonator mid-pipe. It improved the sound but the drone was still there and super annoying. The muffler shop swapped the Flowmaster out for a Magnaflow stainless steel straight-through model. The sound is very good for this engine (never very good) and the drone is gone. The improvements from the exhaust and CAI are noticeable. They do not add huge power gains but they do make the vehicle more drivable for my needs so the money spent was justified. I bought the CAI used off of one of these forums. The exhaust was $170 at a local shop.
Bought my banks CAI used. In the process
of replacing the oil filter with a dry one.
Not worth no $300 new IMO and can't help with the exhaust. Been considering one though, FLO 40 is very popular.
The gains just don't justify the cost.
Sup to you, your money
