V6 exhaust sticky material right here (will be adding). Would love to see more.

I like it...I love the deep low tones down low but up top it sounds sweet too!

I'm thinking SIXJAK would like to see this as well

I love ark. I think they are one of the best sounding/looking exhaust in my opinion. I think if ark never started the price off over 1g when i was shopping for exhaust i probably would have purchased one for sure.

There is another video of the ARK N-II cat-back (this is the DTS) paried up with BBK LTs. It sounds noticeable different...not sure if its the camera picking up the different sounds or if it really is different, but the tone is different enough for me to think its not just the camera.

So I guess my point of the above is be careful which ARK system you go with if you (or whomever) likes this system.

Also, concerning you comment on the rasp, I still feel like the BBK + magnaflow combo also makes for a very throaty basically rasp free sound and is still one of my favorites. Not every LT + exhaust combo causes rasp....but usually you'll get at least a little and if your not carefull you'll get a lot. It definitely takes some research time

The ARK - DTS system has a resonated x- pipe which I would think helps keep the rasp to a minimum.This is why I went with the DTS system and it is all polished stainless steel. I got in on a group buy and shipped to my door for just under a 1000.00 bucks.

Where did you order your exhaust from? I think this is probably top 1 or 2 of V6's ive heard and the other one also had BBK LTs.

Your definitly right with that! I would love to do Longtube but it seems to add rasp when combined with the Solos. Dont remember if 6jack does though. Oh well im going to team it with DTs, i think that will set off the SOLOs

You prolly will not have issue with melting but the SS diffuser is much better proportioned to those big old tips.

ARK's along with Corsa's are really the only other catbacks that capture me besides the SOLO's which to me just sound badd** running through LT's. I had the opportunity to ride behind my car on Saturday as my friend drove it and it impressed me all over again.

Do you have HFC's or are you running sans cats? Again, awesome.

Thank you...i dont think its to loud...normal driving it isnt to loud...but when you get it up over say 3000 rpms people are going to hear you coming....yes the 4 1/2 inch tips are a tight fit in the diffuser but i havnt had any problems so far...i have had the exhaust on for almost 6 months now...bbk headers and high flow cats just went on last week...

Did you install them yourself or go to a shop and did you also get a tune with your LT's?
