3 star product
It's a quality exhaust, easy to install and looks great once installed but the highway drone is just unacceptable for a near $600 product. The exhaust sounds good around town which is what I was looking for but the drone between 55-65 mph makes it almost unbearable to drive with. I'll be installing a resonator behind the AFE muffler in the hopes of stopping the highway drone. If I'm unable to fix the drone which AFE failed to address I'll be removing this exhaust.
aFe BladeRunner is a great addition to the 5.9 Cummins
True to their advertisement, this manifold made the truck more responsive. Also, the factory manifold was warped and the gaskets were leaking, so installing this manifold with thicker flanges and connections between the runners will provide a lifetime of leak-free use.
2012 Nissan Xterra and the aFe Exhaust.
As I have a lift available the installation went pretty easy, getting the stock system off took the most time,I had purchased from the Nissan dealer new gaskets as none came with the Exhaust kit and are superior (metal) to the after market gaskets I saw.The new system is straight forwards had help installing the 2 to 1 muffler on and then with a piece of 2X4 and a short sledge drove the Muffler on leaving room for the exhaust pipe which was a tight fit, be sure all hangers are engaged.
