Default AFE Power Mach Force Exhaust?

So I have been looking at different cat backs currently I have a 40 Series Flowmaster muffler and want to do a full cat back. Does anyone have any experience with the AFE? Appears to be a quality built cat back and 3" mandrel bent. What are thoughts or feedback from owners. Thanks.

You ought to just get a replacement muffler. The stock exhaust pipe is stainless steel and is mandrel bent, so the aftermarket "cat back" systems are really just a waste of money. If you want different tips you'd be better off just buying them and saving the other money. If you don't like the flowmaster you can just find another muffler you like and have it welded in.

I bought a cheap SS muffler on ebay for something like $40 and some mandrel bent aluminized pipe and welded it all up me and a buddy and replaced the downpipes after the cats, the y pipe, and the muffler. This is more performance than you'll get with that cat back and I think I only spend like $100.

Very nice kit however if you want it at a lower price let me know I can beat that by a good amount!

Thanks

I had the AFE kit on my Chevy and it sounded great, couldn't notice any drone with the duals and wasn't very loud at idle either. Sure sounded great when you stepped on it though. This is the one I will be putting under mine.
