Got the bubs off of ebay...had a bit of an issue...incomplete installation kit..hard as hell to follow instructions (at least to me...I'm not that mechanically inclined..:D ), couple of the bolts threads were different than what i needed.

But in the end...these Bubs are something else!!! Managed to get it done and take her for a spin and man did does she rumble now.

For those that are debating on whether or not to change to Bubs or take off the stocks, DO IT!!!! The Clayton is good if you don't want to deafen your neighbors but if you want the rumble...go for it.

Now my question...are the HK 3" pipes as loud as these BUBS? (yes, I've got a set of HK's on the way...I like the long pipe look - but the Bubs are sweeeet!)

I dont think pipes come much louder than Rineharts. Hope that answers your question. =) That being said, i think the sound QUALITY is better off the HKs. You guys would be AMAZED in what some companies do to tune the sound of their pipes. For example, Ferrari spends monts of time in studios (sound studios, that is, and I'm not kidding)and loooooots of $$$ to get the "Ferrari sound".
Just make sure to replace your crush gaskets when you swap pipes. A lot of folks say you dont have to, but for 7 bucks, I'd MUCH rather replace them then have to take the exhaust back off because they leak.
