Clear Image Exhaust install at MVP Automotive

I've upgraded my exhaust system and chose to go with the Clear Image Automotive Exhaust. (http://www.clearimageautomotive.com/Products/Exhaust/ClearImageImpala%20exhaust.htm)

I did the install at MVP Automotive in Bellport, NY (http://www.mvpautomotive.com/)

The kit was great and I recommend it to anyone looking to put a performance exhaust on their Imapla SS.

Here are some shots of my exhaust install...

Order place on June 22nd:
EX0052 1/2" Aluminized system with Sportsman Street XL mufflers
EX006 Substitute 2 1/2" mirror polished 304 stainless tips
XTP001X-port Pipes; aluminized steel tubing

Box arrived on July 13th:

Wow! Thanks for posting such a detailed outline of your installation. That's the most pictures of an exhaust swap I believe I have ever seen.

I'm glad you are happy with our exhaust system.
By the way, the X-port pipes are 304 stainless. We had them in stock and it saved us some time swapping tooling on the bender.

I do prefer customers have the slip joints welded. I personally don't like clamps.

Thanks again.
