You could record it with and put it up on youtube. It's the next best thing to a sound clip. For better quality, try Vimeo.

did you install the gasket that goes in between the muffler and the cats? Its hard to tell but there is one on there from the factory.

I just installed mine today too! I didn't want to put anything back on after I took the old catback off and ran the engine w/o a muffler. Man it was a beautiful sound! People, the pictures do not do it justice, those pipes are HUGE! I did manage to drop the muffler on my head though, my bro just couldn't catch it in time, lol. It does sound great and I'm 400% happy with it. The install looks great Pinky!

Not sure if this is your problem, but I didn't crank down those collars enough the first time around and that made everything a bit sloppy and loose. Once I tightened those guys up it all sat a lot better. Only thing I'm worried about is how close it is to the plastic in the rear and the computer underneath the cargo area. I'm going to try to find some shielding material.

yeah it is a bit close to the comp inthe back but I think it will be fine and I did my install at my dads shop so i had an air gum for the collars after I used that they were real tight.

Hitch gets in the way?
I posted a thread earlier about the hitch issue. If you have a frame mounted hitch that some of the FJ's came with, it will be in the way and cannot install without modification. I removed mine and put in the factory hitch that mounts on the crossmember to fix the issue.

Nice install! Where did you guys order yours from? If you could give me a cost to, that would be great. Can the pipes be installed without a lift and on a garage floor? Thinking about an install in the near future. Thanks

You can definitely do it w/o a lift and on a garage floor. I would recommend you have a friend to help but it isn't absolutely necessary. Definitely test fit all the sections of the aFe before you start putting it in. The tip to lock two wrenches together for more torque was the only thing that let me get the old system off.

Well I got my AFE exhaust for $300 and I installed it myself. You could do it on the ground but it wont be easy and just a heads up some of the bolts on the og exhaust are hard to undo.
