Litespeed Racing Exhaust Review
 
“The only titanium Exhaust system available for 2010 and up Camaro. The 2010 and up Camaro is a true performance car with great handling braking and power. This titanium axel back exhaust was engineered to increase all areas of performance by reducing weight, and increasing horse power and torque, all while giving your Camaro a more agressive and exotic sounding exhaust note. The axle back design can be used with your stock exhaust or added to aftermarket cat-back pipes that have stock exit points. “ –Litespeed Racing
http://litespeed-racing.myshopify.co...tanium-exhaust (Website if you would like to order after review)

SYSTEM IS CURRENTLY ON SALE!!!!

This will be my review of the titanium exhaust system. I have just recently installed the new titanium exhaust by Litespeed Racing, this exhaust I personally have to say it’s the best I ever had on my car. I’ve had a lot of exhausts on my car and this by far is the best sounding, looking and can you say WOW! on the weight of it. I did not weight it before I put it on my car but the box it came in said 17lbs and I was able to put it under my arm and carry it with one arm. I could not say that with my other exhausts even the lightest one I had (SLP Loudmouth 1).
Starting with the feel and look of it I have to say the blue burnt tips were not my absolute favorite when I opened the box since my car is red and black, but after install it does personally give it an aggressive look to the back of my car with the other mods installed (Havoc rear diffuser and High Rise spoiler). After installing I brought my car out to my friends to get their honest opinion, I got the same results from them as I was thinking, It just fits the Camaro it fits the look and style by giving it a nice sound and look.
How it sounds. I have installed just the axle-back exhaust but after I break it in I will be installing and writing a review of the full cat-back exhaust by Litespeed Racing. The sound I would have to say is the best sound for me. I can explain it by saying it is what an American muscle car should sound like, it just makes my car sound so nice and not loud and annoying like some import exhaust yet not quiet or subtle like the stock exhaust or the Gm performance exhaust I had on my car previously. The problem with the previous exhaust I had on my car that it was to loud and had to much drone for me I couldn’t have a conversation in my car when I was pressing the gas and as a daily driver it really gets to you. (Slp Loudmouth I) straight pipes and not worth the money I rather take it to meineke and get a custom 3” exhaust put in and save myself $200 since it is to much drone for me as a DD. Compare that with my other exhaust the GM performance no drone in the car, lighter then the big trashcans of the stock and has a little more umph to the sound then the stock. The Gm is still not the best out there I rather buy a Borla since it is made by them. This exhaust by Litespeed Racing I personally have to say it is a mix of both of these exhaust no drone when your on cruise but when you step on it then you can really hear it but not to loud where you cant even have a conversation with a passenger enjoying the ride. The titanium exhaust is an awesome upgrade for me and I do not regret getting this exhaust on my car it sounds mean, looks aggressive with the blue tips but it still holds its own within the car (noise level) and outside the car (not a cop pulling exhaust).

Will update this thread when I install the full catback (V6 no engine mods done only CAI intake)
Will also be installing in v8 Camaro to display the difference side by side

Sounds great and looks good but the price is a joke if it really is $1450 for an axel back

full titanium does run around $1000+ not just for the camaro but for many other cars the advantages are really great over any exhaust out there and thats my personal opinion. You get a lot i mean a lot less weight on them, look good, sound great and are durable. If your interested email Patrick you can always help you in pricing and the Full cat-back is available I just put the axle-back on mine to see the sound of it

SSMickey 07-30-2013 07:13 PM

I have been wondering when someone was going to drop the coin for this thing. Way to expensive for an axle back but I do understand it's made from titanium though. You do have to pay to play. That is one sweet sounding exhaust note. I wonder how LT's will affect it? My guess is it will get real raspy.

I mean if you have it go for it its the best for the price and only one around that is full titanium. And i know for a fact if you message Patrick at Litespeed he would more then likely help you on pricing if your interested. I like it becuase of the weight and sound and look of it. Good for the track if your going for lightweight. It is also available in full cat-back but I do not know the price.

SSMickey 07-30-2013 09:00 PM

I just might look into this. I'd only need an axle back and no tips since I run GFX. Do you happen to know anyone else with this exhaust that might have LT's too?

RenegadeSS 07-30-2013 10:34 PM

I need to come over and here it bro! Let me know!

cslee0811 07-31-2013 02:07 AM

WOW! 17 LBS? That's impressi... wait... what? $1400!?!?!?!?!

Brian 1LE SS 07-31-2013 03:47 AM

If it was a racing exhaust it wouldn't go past the axle. Lol

PalmerGA 07-31-2013 05:22 AM

A little too raspy for me - doesn't have that deep V8 sound. I think the MRT-V2s I had on my 1LT sounded better.

The video is good but it doesn't show it off like I'm going to..mrt2 is a good exhaust I had it on my car before this. But I can easily get more raspy on my lt. Make sure you listen to it with headphones on

I'll piggyback this thread.

Just installed the LiteSpeed Racing titanium exhaust on my sons V6 and the ULTRAGRIN he has on his face is priceless when driving it .. (he's the one driving in the video)

No other performance mods period, just the titanium exhaust.

Drone is minimal and and when you go WOT, it sounds bad ass for a V6.

Bozz1LE 07-31-2013 12:15 PM

If it was a full Catback I would have been interested, but whats the point of the weight savings if you leave the bulky mid-mufflers and h-pipe alone on a V8.

The axle back portion weighs maybe 30lbs, So $1000 for an axleback to save 13 lbs or a full catback for $1000 and save 13 lbs and gain a couple horse... seems like too much money for little return.

Like I said above full catback is available just talked to Patrick from litespeed racing site will be updated and prices will be reflective for fast sales to get this system on your camaros..and yes I do understand the price and weight that is why I am adding the full catback on my v6. More return if you get the full system agreed

Thanks for commenting video is nice doing one this week

SSMickey 07-31-2013 02:57 PM

OK, I'm a little confused right now. This is the V8 section and it looks like all of these videos of this exhaust are on V6's. Any sound clips of it on a V8 with Long tube headers?

Sorry for confusion this system is made for the v8 but can fit the v6 with adapters. Yes currently it is installed on two v6 but this week it will be installed on a v8 with headers and one without so it can get all the camaros just stay tuned
