So instead of spending $400 on a slip on pipe, I just modified my stock can.

I cut it down 8 inches and took out all the silencing in the can.
It's loud, looks better, easy to do, and cheap.

I would advise anyone with some basic tool/machine skills to do this project.

I'll have pics posted later today....

Here it is:


And heres the link to the sound clip:

Drilled out rivets.
Measured and cut.
Took out inner pipes.
Put on tip and rivet it back in place.

Took about 2-3 hours just cuz I played with the sound and stuff.

I cut about 5 inches off mine and left the tubes and sound deadening intact. Lost one chamber so it's somewhat louder, but much better looking than stock.
Really pretty easy to do.
