How to get more aggressive rev?

I want to see if there's anything I over looked beside adding Solo HFCs or switching my exhaust to MRT or muffler delete? I have Magnaflows right now and I like the sound. BUT Reving is kind of well sucks.

Any thoughts or ideas?

I watched may videos of MRT and magnaflow, I don't see a big difference, there just people saying it is.

Seems Solo HFC sound kinds raspy in the videos I watch.

This link is the NCCCv6 rev contest. The 1st 2 well I think not so good but after that the blue Camaro and the white after are GREAT but there LLT not LFX. The Last one is LFX so is it cause of the LLT have there headers changed?

Headers do I fact change the tone a lot depending on which ones you use.

All the LFX can do is downpipes...

Damn Chevy engineers being all smart and integrating the headers inside the engine to prevent hear soak, thus extending the cars life....

The MRT V2 are great, changes whole tone of ride. If you get the CAI with it, it not only increases horsepower but also the sound. Them 2 combined are AWESOME!

Mine is pretty aggressive. It's a little raspy when not under load, especially since I can only rev it to 5k when the car isn't moving, but revving up to 7k sounds awesome when I'm rolling.

Totally agree with your assessment. While in park, there's no reason whatsover to rev the engine (don't understand how it knows) because it has no meat behind the tone. BUT, tap-shifting down to 3rd gear on the highway and letting it wind out to 7K is incredible --- especially if you do so just before going under an overpass. lol

Which I do everyday on my way home at the same overpass. Haha. 100% agree.

I liked the girl from Jersey and the guy in the white Camaro right after her the best. They must have headers and open exhaust. Never seen a reving contest before. Interesting.

I love the sound of my Borla's at 5k under load in 4th gear going uphill in the Mountains of PA. The looks on peoples faces was priceless as I passed them going up hill. They don't sound real loud just driving around but when you're on it between the Borla's and the K&N ..... what a sound and its loud.

The Roto-fab CAI adds 12-15 HP and a more aggressive sound! It's regarded by many as the best intake available for the 2010-15 Camaro



Thanks

I love my Roto-Fab. While I'd argue to say the CAI is the absolute best at sealing against heat, the Roto-Fab just looks bad ass.
