I have a bad front exhaust pipe. I have ordered a new one and was wondering if this bad pipe causes a loss of power? Once I get this new pipe put on will I regain some power and gain a bit quieter exhaust? This pipe is very expensive. You can only get it from the dealership and it will cost $560 with gaskets. I have a friend that works at the dealership so he is getting it for me at the employee discount which is 10% over cost. So I am getting the front exhaust pip and gaskets for $350. Good deal. Thanks for any info.
