If it's like most of their other exhausts, it'll be a pretty decent system. But you're just as well off getting it from one of our sponsers on here. Probly just as cheap anyhow. Plus they all have a good reputation. Plus plenty of support!!!

I just installed a 4" Jeg's system on my 03 less than a week ago. The Glasspack muffler that it comes with is Bi directional, you can turn it for more air flow or more noise reduction.

Installation was extremely simple, I just removed the spare tire to give myself more clearance room. As far as tools go You need a 14mm Deep socket to remove the clamps, and the mount for the front hanger on the transmission and a 7/16" one for the clamp on the ring that sits around the turbo, I also used a 4.5" angle grinder to cut out the muffler so it would drop easier, if you seperate the muffler from the end pipe and the font pipe your good. A can of silicon spray was useful for removing the exhaust hangers.

Personally unless you go with an on the forum distributor get the Jegs system, it got to my house in 46 hours, and shipping was free, and you get a hat. :lol3:

The hardest part of installing the new exhaust was figuring out what hanger was used where, the instructions that came with it were not descriptive.

If ya need any help or want a sound clip PM me.

Summit and Jegs both work the same way. The don't actually make the products they just relabel one of there manufactures product and sell it as a cheaper price. Works out quite well for all envolved. And they both have great prices and free shipping. Usually with summit ground shipping is at my door in 2-3 days!!

I prefer summit because there website is far superior, but Jegs is very comparable.

I prefer 4" Any larger sounds like poo without the air moving through it, but since they all use a 4" downpipe there really is no difference in power/spool.
