I just installed a Stainless Gibson Cat-back on my 2010 Charger. Its a nice package, and the price was right. But the finish on the mufflers was disappointing and the welds were painted. I actually took a magnet to the pipes to make sure they were actually stainless. Hangers are steel, clamps are crappy and had to throw them away. Install was not a breeze- but after 1 hour and some adjustment it fit OK. I needed to loosen the entire exhaust up to the manifolds and have 3 people twist move it around while I tighten everything up. I was very surprised how quiet it is - and not in a good way.
My last car was a 2005 Magnum 5.7L and I put on a Magnaflow stainless system. It fit perfectly with no adjustment and the mufflers were polished and all the welds were stainless not painted. Finish on the whole system was much higher quality. It had slightly throatier sound as well.
THe Gibson gets an OK rating because it works and sounds OK, but I won't buy Gibson again
