Installation Time: Full Day

Best exhaust setup for a 6 shooter
(Didn't buy these from AM, as they didn't offer them at the time, but just recently installed them)
Good job AM; literally a few weeks after I suggested you guys start getting MAC exhaust products, you do. I have an '01 6-shooter and I recently completed my full exhaust conversion (MAC Ceramic Long Tubes, MAC Off Road H pipe, and SLP Loudmouth) A friend did the install and it was a full day of work. I have heard others talk about the difficulty of getting these MAC headers on, but in my case, the fit itself was not that bad; the only tight/difficult part was getting the header bolts on to tighten everything down. They ended up having to use a manual wrench with small quarter turns over a whole hour alone just to get the bolts tightened, due to having no room for anything else. Other than that, the install was not too bad. These long tubes should only be bought in the ceramic style; they'll last longer and you do get what you paid for in its quality.
The headers don't hang that much lower than my previous setup, and mine has H&R Super Sport springs so it's already very low. They do look amazing in the engine bay and under the vehicle. One word of advice; on some model years you might need 2 sets of oxygen sensor extenders instead of just 1, as I found out.
When all was said and done, between parts and labor I easily spent over $1000 on this setup. Obviously it's the more expensive route for a V6 exhaust job, but it's also the best route in my book. There aren't many long tubes on the road, especially for 6 shooters, and it's obvious that yours is different every time you get on it. So if you're willing to spend the money, I would highly recommend going the MAC long tube route.
Note: Video does not even come close to how loud this setup is in real life, but it is what it is.
