NPP or Solo Mach-LFX Exhuast?

Any SoCal peep have either the factory V6 NPP Dual exhaust or the aftermarket Solo Mach-LFX cat back system?

YouTube is lacking in examples.

I have a opportunity to chose between the two and I was hoping some SoCal folks wouldn't mind me doing some in person listening.

Or post your thoughts or videos is you have some.

Thx

Can you retrofit the wiring for an NPP on a non NPP car?

That's what I'm about to find out. lol

I was thinking I can leave the NPP "unwired" and hopefully that will just keep the flaps open full time.

Just not sure if the flaps require power/vacuum to stay open?

Ya, I've watched the vid several times.

Just curious how many local V6 folks have done the Solo or NPP exhaust.

I have the NPP exhaust on my 2014 2LT, and it sounds pretty close to what was on the Solo video, but it gets pretty healthy above 4K. The NPP was factory installed.

Jeffa,


Can you do me a favor and take some pics of your vacum tube going from the exhuast to the engine bay. Trying to find were this taps into. Thx
