"Now it sounds like a man's car" Quote of the year!

So once I got done installing my all stainless XSPower exhaust system (1 7/8" headers, 3" off road x pipe, 3" mufflers http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=138007) I started it up for my wife. I was worried she would not like the way it sounded and she wouldn't want to ride in it. I began to have flash backs of my 98 SS that she never wanted to ride in because it was too "race carish".

The words that came out of her mouth put the biggest grin on my face! She listened to it and said, "now it sounds like a man's car"!

Here is a quick clip, sorry about the crappy quality, it's from my phone and for some reason the audio is really quiet.

Is this a custom set-up or are we able to buy this kit somewhere?

Sounds awesome. I like the 3rd or so throttle blip when it blows some of the garage floor crap around.

Thanks for the link. Man, I've been listening to some of these exhaust systems and so far this set-up is the best. I love the way it sounds from the interior clip! I was leaning towards the Borla S Type but it sounds like this system is a true system; you can rly feel the engine; THAT'S WHAT I WANT!! The price is awesome too. Hmm... I might have to think about this... How's the cab drone?

It was real close, so i decided to ding them just to be safe.

Yeah, it is a bit more refined than I would like when I rev it. I actually thought with it being an off road x pipe and the tiny mufflers it would be a lot louder. Which is actually a good thing, I suppose, I feel like I want it louder right now, but after the novelty of new exhaust wears off I think this will be the perfect loudness and sound.

I LOVE the way it sounds and feels now. You put it perfectly in saying that you can feel the motor now. It was way too quiet in stock form and having not driven a stick in over 5 years and it was a little tough to drive since you can't hear the motor little own feel it. I honestly feel that this is the way it should come from the factory. There is a little cab drone if you lug the motor under 2 grand. It's not bad at all. The only thing I was worried about was rasp. I HATE exhaust rasp and this system has none. I can live with a little exhaust drone for how affordable this COMPLETE system is, hell it cost less than most cat back only systems.
