Magnaflow 16483 3" Catback is installed ! I will post up some video clips of it soon. It sounds amazing ! Thanks to JDP Motorsports for the help with this ! I definitely made the right choice - low mean grumble, no drone I could find

Sorry for the shake on these. Working on a better system for video.

Take off video, not full throttle but provides an idea of the Magnaflow sound


On the highway 60 mph in cabin

How about a video of it Idling. I can't make up my mind if I want Magnaflow or Corsa. What do you think? Is this exhaust with cats or not.

Sure. I will try to remember to get an idle tonight. I can tell you my general feeling was that I nailed the choice of exhausts with this Magnaflow ! Sounds incredible and does not drone.

I have stock cats - for now ; )

LOL. Yes the birds were going crazy. They must be big Camaro fans. Best way to describe the exhaust is deep and throaty sound. Reminds me of our boats idling in the water at the river.

I expect things to change when I get headers.

Your exhaust sounds perfect for now. It may not sound so cool when the day comes you add LT headers but that would void your warantee.

The A6-L99 with headers and exhaust like this WILL have a drone just incase anyone is leaning in that direction.

This car sounds great the way it's set up.

Sounds like you must be a Boater as well as a Camaro Nut .....
I also own a Boat on the Mississippi ...Thought I post up a quick Video of it .....Its a 28 Nordic Heat with a 525 ....75MPH Boat.....

Hey looks great!I have a SIM 1SS myself did you add the 4 pk guages?? makes a big difference on the interior! My mods right now are : ADM CAI, BMR Fabrication strut tower brace, and am currently waiting on my Borla ATAK cat back cant wait. did you have to get your car aligned after putting in the springs?

That is a beautiful boat ! We had a nice 25 foot party boat and a 22 foot runabout. But we sold those when we moved and have not replaced them so far. Family still has a bunch of boats when we go to the river so that is nice for now.

Nice mods ! I am going to get the gauges at some point also. The interior needs work. I have a nice interior mod coming this week. I also need to get some more Pfadt stuff for next month, going to do a couple races !

I see your screen name is Mojave and you say you moved ...So that tells me you moved from maybe Havasu area to Lexington?????? I have Boated on Lake Havasu and also Lake Cumberland

You are a good detective. We lived in the high desert of Cali before coming to Lexington. We did not go to Havasu much since the family owns several homes in Bullhead AZ. So we went to Lake Mojave (Catherine's Landing) many times each year. I would love to go back to Cali so I could boat more but the job market stinks there.

Thanks, I chickened out on doing the grill myself. I had the dealer to the install because taking the front off the car made me too nervous.
