Default True Dual's with X pipe...pics & vid included

I finally got around to redoing my exhaust. Originally I had a flowmaster 40 series and it sound good, but I really wanted to do true duals with X pipe. So I got a magnaflow X pipe and two 14 inch magnaflow straight through mufflers. Overall I'm satisfied with the sound...although it's not as loud as I thought it would be. Actually the flowmaster was almost as loud as this is, but the Magnaflow has a smoother rumble. Also put on new 4 inch magnaflow tips.

Anyway here are a few pics and a video. The sound on the video came out crappy and can't figure out why...my camera is a very good olympus so not sure what the deal is with the sound quality.

I was hoping it would give me a little more HP & torque. Also since I was going with a free flow setup and didn't want that raspy extreme loudness and heard the x pipe would help reduce this and it seems that it has. Exhaust does not crackle or pop...it's just a smooth rumble.

At cruise it's actaully not bad at all even when MDS kicks in. Getting up to speed is when it's the loudest, but after you get to cruise it's not bad at all and little drone.

Mufflers were about $90 a piece, X pipe was $85, tips were $60...so $235 (give or take) for the parts. The install was about $500. Pretty high for the install but my hands were tied since this was the only guy I could find within local distance to where I live.
