I have a zoomers exhaust. I was their first V6. It is good, but it does have some drone at around 2200 rpm. I was suppose to take it back to them and see if they could do so more work on it to get the drone out, but I've had it so long now, that I am use to it. I had it installed in early August. The car sounds great. I know, I know you want a video. I'm still working on putting that together. If you are located in SoCal, I may not be too far away. I am in Escondido.

Alright, this is my first attempt to embed a video. So if I screw it up I apologize.

This sound test was filmed on August 11, 2009. About a week after the install of the Zoomers exhaust. The car had under 700 miles at the time. Now, I would say it is louder (similar to what others are saying about the cars getting louder with time and miles). Now the car has about 3,100 miles.

I will work on a moving video next and maybe another stationary one to see if the differences are noticeable on the video.

Thanks Xanthos.

At first I did copy and paste the embed code from Youtube, but it just gave me a long stream of text. So I edited the post and just pasted the link. But thanks for cleaning it up.

No problem.

Here's a nice writeup of how to embed youtube videos.

Awesome video! Yeah if you could do some drive-by's or any moving ones that would be awesome but this is exactly what I thought it would sound like and it's awesome. Is this an axle-back and how much did it run you?

While I agree it does sound really good... well.. the standing still is the easy part... it's the full throttle all the way to 7000 RPM that your really need to hear...

Agreed. I'm just a bit of chicken and didn't want to do that sitting still. If I remember correctly I did rev it above 5k.

I will get some moving vids together and post it.

Ok... let me rephrase... a hard take off, full throttle under load... LOL

The neutral rev limiter kicks in around 4500 or 5000 RPM...

It's a cat back. I think the cost is around $1,300. I paid less because I was the template car, if you will. I remember at the time I was doing this that it was about the same cost as the Corsa or Borla. The advantage for me was they (Zoomers) were relatively local and they were willing to give me a discount and to do the install.

Do they offer a cheaper axle-back?? And if you could post a take-off video over 5k RPM that would be sweet! I'll give you a $1 lol.

Alright, here is my lame attempt at making a video of the Camaro in motion. On the last portion of the video, I attached the camera (using a suction mount) to the rear bumper. The thought being that this would keep the mic out of the wind. What I think this does do though is to put the mic too close to the sound source so I suspect the mic was a little "over powered".




It's funny, on most of the videos that I have seen and heard on this site, someone will usually say, "it really sounds better in person". I always thought, "yah sure". Well, I was wrong. It really does sound better in person. I suspect it has to do with the fact that most of us are using consumer video cameras with pretty simple microphones. Anyway this is a close approximation but it does sound better in person.

Nice job with the video. I'm liking the sound of this too. Between this and Solo, my opinion.

Here is another video from inside the car. I wasn't going to upload this video because there is a lot of ambient noise, wind (windows down) and camera rattle, but it is ok for what it is. It is a little longer, there are two passes with windows down and then two passes with windows up.
