Default Finally Settled On Exhaust Now Where's The Cheapest Place To Buy Aero Turbine???

I've finally settled on an exhaust. I just want to replace the existing stock muffler and have an Aero Turbine 3030XL put in with maybe a stainless tip. My truck doesn't have MDS or any stock resonators so I think the regular 3030 would just be too loud I don't want my neighbors to completely hate me and I want to avoid that popping sound on decel. I've listened to a lot of youtube video clips and this AT 3030XL sounds pretty amazing but damn are they spendy!!! Anybody have any experiance with these and know the cheapest place to pick one up?? The cheapest I've found so far is like $148 shipped.

Have you talked to your local shops about their price?

I haven't looked this specific part up but my experience has been Google is my friend when looking for pricing online.

When I considered Aero Turbine they were all pretty pricey. $148 shipped might be the best deal unfortunately... Hence my decision to go with Summit's muffler.

They were on sale a while back for $99 I wish I could've gotten in on that deal lol. I checked my local shops and only one even knew what I was talking about and the cheapest they could get it for is $225. This place is a joke when it comes to pricing. It's just a small area with no competition.

How do you install a stainless muffler can it be welded with a regular welder or does it take a special welder and is the factory tubing already stainless?

Well I'm going to order the 3030XL today or tomorrow depending on how busy work is. I wish I had some way of getting a before and after sound clip! I guess I could try and use my digital camera but it pretty much sucks at videos especially sound because you can hear the camera lens trying to focus the whole time and it's loud and annoying I need a new camera!

if you're going to use your digital camera, don't set it righty by the exhaust because during revving, there is a lot of wind noise. just a bit of advice.
