A nite of mayem.

So last night I decided to take matters into my own hands and shoot some vids of my set up from the outside. My friend that said he would help me became deathly ill for several weeks is just now coming around and I think it's gonna be a while. I used the flimsy excuse of going to the store for milk last night at 11:30. I ended up at the Home Depot and set up there. There was a big rig parked in the parking lot idling but with curtains drawn. Taking a nap....not for long. I actually realized this more fully after my first run:



Knowing how loud my car is I thought it best to set up shop elsewhere. I set up shop behind the Target which is on the other side of Ross which separates Target and Home Depot. See if you can tell when I see the police officer:




Short clip of officer asking what's going on shoulda left the camera running. Would have been priceless.




Turns out the complaint came in for a Camaro engaged in C & I careless and imprudent. Cop told me to relax and that he was a Camaro nut. He asked if he could look at the interior and I said sure. He loved the CAI and headers showed him the J-Pipes on the back of the exhaust. He's restoring an 81 T-Top Berlinetta. Yanked the 2.8 V6 out and installed a 350 crate motor with 4 bolt main and 4 speed auto vs a 3 speed indicative of that vintage. Had pics of it on his phone. Looks pretty good. He's a total gearhead we talked a good hour (small town-I was prolly his craziest call all night) We're gonna try and hook up next week. He wants to drive it. We'll see what happens. LOL.

I finally did go to Walmart and get the milk and some steel wool to polish my exhaust tips. They sure get black fast with the LT's. Anyway one more vid there's a long pause after the initial take off.

Yeah I guess it does sound a little NASCAR. Is that what the VR sounds like? That's just my "bottom feeder" CAI Inc Intake LOL. I'm pretty happy with the CAI overall. You can definitely get a good idea of what the intake sounds like when the car is coming towards the camera. I've never heard it until the above vids. And then of course my friend drove my car tonight and I got to hear it live as he came towards me at WOT. Sounds the same as on the vid if you're wearing even a decent set of headphones.

It's been triple digit heat for goin on 2 weeks now and I crank up the AC and cruise with my windows down just to hear my exhaust. Does anybody else do this? The sound the exhaust makes during decell after WOT is like a drug that I can't get enough of. Winter is going to be rough.

If I'm honest I don't like the sound at around 2900 RPM under load. Too blatty. Thankfully, it's just for a very brief moment if you're accelerating. I attribute it to the long tubes or the Random Tech HFC's. They are metal matrix (ceramic) vs SOLO's stainless steel HFC's. I wonder if SOLO's HFC's would cure it? That is my only nit about my set up. I think it sounds very good and rumbly at idle and low revs below 2000 rpm and I bet it would sound awesome with the ghost cam. From 2000- 2700 it's decent 2800 -2900, and simply sounds awesome from 3000 RPM to redline.

SOLO's J-pipes's definitely work. I have no drone. My system has had a few thousand miles of seasoning so I'll be playing with those Jpipes now to see what they do to certain frequencies.

Oops, for some reason I thought you had the VR still can hear your CAI which is a sound I absolutely love. But yes at 1:10 your car sounds like a nascar (key word is 'like' for all the haters lol)
I love your set up man, Ive been wanting to hear longtubes with the SOLOs.
As for the sound of the VR, people who have switched from the longube Injen have said it was louder then the Injen which we were told was the loudest during the Janetty Test.
Anyways great vids man!
PS ive replayed the 1:10 mark several times already, just love listening to that
