    I love my turndowns with my O/R H-Pipe.

    I also love the smell of gas.

    where are your turn downs? after the axel or right after the muffler? what kind of mufflers are you running? do you get more drone than normal at highway speeds? do you blow up a lot of dust with turndowns??

    I have some Hooker Aero Chambers. The turndowns are right after the muffler, buit the way its set up, they are also right before the rear end, I actually had to cut some of one off this weekend to get my rear end out because it was sitting on it. As far as drone, the mufflers I have are pretty much like Flowmasters except w/o the drone, and I have never had tail pipes, only side pipes and turndowns. So I couldnt tell you which one is better for dust. But I do get a good amount of dust on the back of my car, but I think thats just from driving.
