Bent up a rather tight s pipe back into the factory pipe right in front of the diff.
Every person who has heard it says it's the best sounding exhaust they've heard to date on a v6.
Shed a cumulative 30 lbs after adding the new stuff. This morning on the tollway saw a 32.4 mpg running 65 to 70 mph. Engine has 2,400 miles on it.

sound clips are useless, speaker size/type etc. I'll get pics when I do the shots of my body mods.

then an extension of that would be that pictures are useless... under or over exposed, poor color balance, uncalibrated monitors, etc. Heck. their not 3D or life size either... in fact I had no interest in the new Camaro, and I looked at a ton of pictures.... wasn't until i seen one in person was i hooked!!! LOL

yes, even with my crap built-in laptop speakers I can get an idea of which sound clips i don't like... the ones i like I listen with a good set of head phones and not the ear bud type... I find that gives me very realistic feel for my sound clips... i've made a couple... LOL

scrming is exactly right! Mikevrod, if you have the time (and a proper video recorder, digital camera, etc....) we'd all love to hear your setup. Of course we can't force ya to do somethin you may not want to do, but I know id much rather see some video than just pictures. I have a Creative pc sound setup with subwoofer, so as long as the input is captured ok...my output does great!

I've been using my Media Center PC to listen to the exhaust sounds in the videos that everyone has posted. It's hooked up to a full-on surround sound home theater receiver so audio quality is only limited by what is captured on the original camcorder.

This is the first Flowmaster install on a v6 so help us all out and get some video on Youtube for us to review.

Yes the tips look very good.
I think I like the lower rear part painted.
Do you have another photo of rear from an angle, or from farther away ?
Thanks......

PS....I only see ONE photo.......

Borla

Borla now makes a Cat back x-pipe dual exhaust for the V6 now. I ordered mine through Jegs and Borla also told me you should be able to get it through Summit Racing as well. Then you can also order directly from Borla.

Have you taken a sound clip or video yet? No one cares what the tips look like, just how it sounds.

Post # 36 97one asked for that shot. The sound and vid is coming. In the mean time, imagine a v8 Ferrari. That's what it sounds like.
