I edited the stereo post and inserted the pics from a new photo hosting site, I did not edit the airhorn post but I will now.


Hardest part of the air horns was pulling the entire lower dash and center console just to get the panel out where the gauge is installed, couple pics of that below:

I'm not trying to belittle your work in any way, but I've had that dash off of my 2008 Xterra, too.



The temperature selector was still turning from Cold to Hot, but all I'd get out of the vents was hot air. There was a little resistor switch that I had to replace down in there.



I think the problem was the 10 extra screws I had after the job was finished.

I pulled the whole dash in my former 90 sentra to replace the top pad:

MBRP exhaust I ordered was still showing on the website as "awaiting shipment" I sent them a message asking when it would ship. Come home from work yesterday and exhaust is at my house, website still shows "awaiting shipment"


Installed exhaust just now. Nice working on a fairly new truck with no rust or salt to deal with, all bolts and the 4 flange nuts came off fairly easy. I even separated the tailpipe section from the muffler and that came apart pretty easily.


I reused the OEM flange gaskets as they are the 3 layer metal type and in my opinion are the best gaskets, the ones that came with the kit are those grey gaskets with the metal circle in the middle. No leaks.



I spent an extra $57 at Jegs for 5 band clamps as the MBRP picture of the kit shows regular U-bolt style exhaust clamps and I did not want to use them as they crush the pipe and would make disassembly impossible if I ever have to take it apart.


To my surprise the kit came with a band style clamps but not the wide ones like I bought. (The SS version of this kit shows the band style clamps in the pic on their website)


New exhaust went together easily and everything fit and cleared everything on the truck with no issues. I would have liked the rear pipe section to have some more of a bend in it to keep the tip away from the bumper but I may take that last section to an exhaust shop to see if they can tweak it slightly, or I may just leave it alone. I'll have to think about it.


Exhaust sounds real good at idle and low RPM but it is on the loud (or aggressive) side as it says on the MBRP site.


Couple pics and a video to follow.
