L99 Exhaust Upgrade

Been thinking about doing it, but there are many here who have done it and regret it due to the AFM noise.
Is it really that bad?

^^ Until you have a drive line problem ^^.
Don't loose your warranty- Get the Solo J-pipe axle backs.
I have absolutely no drone or AFM noise on My L99 SS with these,
plus a great deep aggressive sound.

Nonsense. I have a 3" magnaflow competition catback and no tune. AFM is not that big of a deal. When it kicks on all it does is change tone a bit. Also i get zero drone. It just simply sounds way way better now.

I had the Muffler Delete done, not too loud and just enough growl.

I have the Borla S and I've not once noticed the AFM drone that a lot of people complain about. My hearing is better then most people I know so these people must have better hearing then mine.

Now if you want to hear a car drone, let me give you a ride in my '97 Z28. Now that car drones something bad. One ride in that car and you'll never complain about the AFM drone again.

I'm interested in this info also. I'm thinking of buying one for my '12 SS. I have heard good things about the Solo, but the Borla name just stands out there. Subscribing to this thread!

I had my SS L99 at a car show last summer parked next to another new SS with the Borla exhaust.
My Solos sounded so much deeper and more aggressive IMO. Of course I might have been a little biased.

There really isn't AFM drone with the Solo system, but there is AFM noise. It's there when stock too, if you know what to listen for. To me, it sounded like my car was farting every time it kicked in and out. I paid for a V8 and that's what I want, not a 4-banger 75% of the time. The best solution is a tune. Yes it's a risk losing your warranty, but this is supposed to be a fun car, not an econo-box. Come on, GM

But what's the advantage of the x-pipe? The Solo doesn't have one, correct?
