Another Happy Gibson Customer!

I finally installed my Gibson 12213. I also upgraded the tip to an Intercooled Rolled Tip 4" tip (Part Number 500427) instead of the 3.5" slashed tip (Part Number 500360) that normally comes with the Gibson Exhaust Kit. I got the kit directly from Gibson for $380 out the door with taxes. Thanks to Robert at Gibson, they have another happy customer.

I love the tone. I'm not sure what people are saying when they say it's quiet...I think it sounds awesome! Really deep tone especially at Cold Start Up and also during the lower RPMs and of course during WOT. While I was at Gibson I also saw a Gibson MM which looked sick! It was probably a 6" inch outlet on that tip. Well, below are the pictures of my endeavor. After so much researching and advice from CA members, I'm finally part of the Gibson family.

Nice. Congrats on your purchase. It looks great. Got a video of the sound?

Was this just for sound? Or do you have performance improvement? How much hp did you gain?

I've never posted a video on CA yet. I'll try in the next couple of days.

That looks amazing. Love the new Gibson tip. I will bookmark your thread since it has all the part numbers. LOL. I could probably wear the MM tip as a hat! LOL.

Keep the mods coming, Angel. We need to swap out that radiator now.
