Installed mine yesterday. Took around 2-1/2 hrs maybe. 4 total including stops to run to the parts store and dinner. I think they sound amazing. They pulled some of the high pitch from the ATAKS out. Personally it's the perfect setup. Shorties, stock mid, borla ATAK's.

What did you have to run to the parts store for? Some odds and ends we might need to know about? Special tools or extensions?

Wratcheting wrench because you can't get a socket on the nuts. Most of the studs came out due to the lock nut. So I picked up some new studs and nuts from advanced.

Any particular length on that wratcheting wrench? The longer the better?

What size? 13mm?

I love them. Normal size wrench. Just remember to go back and tighten them after a few hundred miles. Passenger side bottom back is a pain in the a$$. You will have to get it from underneath. Also ensure you start all nuts before tightening as you will not be able to get atleast one on due to clearance.

Sounds good! I'm hoping to have my shorties in about 2 months. Other things to take care of first.
