Intstallation on a scale of 1 (easiest) to 10 (hardest) I'd rate the Magnaflow a 3. Install required a 14mm socket and a 15mm socket.
Comparison to the stock exhaust:
Magaflow feels about 2 - 3 lbs heavier.
Stock exhaust sounds better at start-up, under load and overall. I prefer the slight rasp and metallic sound of the stock system, the Magnaflow is quieter at start-up and while driving.
Magaflow has less drone.
Butt dyno felt no performance difference in systems.
This exhaust is much more mellow than stock, for those considering a new exhaust I'd look elsewhere.
