Actual installation was very easy. Removal of factory installed muffler was inexorably difficult! I would personally recommend having it done at a muffler shop, but maybe it's just me. As far as performance (I didn't have it dynoed) I couldn't really tell if MUCH had changed. Fuel consumption did not improve or decline. As for sound, it's louder than I was hoping for (a friend had told me this one wasn't very loud), but I knew going in that it was a performance exhaust system and would be louder than factory. Therefore I'm not unimpressed. I like the deeper tones at idle, but I'm not fond of blowing my eardrums out with the radio to hear over the exhaust at 50mph. Overall, it's nice. I probably wouldn't do it again, but I did get what I thought I would... a louder exhaust with little if any change in power/performance.
