no axleback should cause a CEL. i've never heard of any modification to the exhaust cause a CEL outside of headers or hfc's.

you could aslo look at the solo performance thread down in the vendor section. i believe there's a whole thread of many, many pages on the V6 axlebacks. i'd assume they would be some vid's posted.

dude the SLP loudmouths on a v6 will drone and shake the cabin so bad you'll go crazy. the solo's are alittle more but worth it imo on the v6. Now if i had a v8 with the DoD turned off i'd get the loudmouths and drive my wife crazy
