Solo HFC's are a great addition to a LLT engine Camaro- I don't know if they have a bolt on compatible with the LFX .

I'm pretty sure they are compatible, since their cant be headers this would be a good bolt on since the factory cats are very restrictive

Solo Hi-Flows

Been running them for about 18 mths with Solo's Mach-XL Catback with J-Pipes....LOVE THEM !!
A little pricier than other brands, but, you get what you pay for!

Im thinking of getting the mach solos, but want evidence of performance gains. Surely somebody has dyno results. Sound alone means nothing. There has ro b evidence, right?

Were they specific about the cats or did they mean the cat-back exhaust?

From pics I've seen, I don't think the high-flo res-cats for the LLT will fit without fabrication on the LFX.

SOLO has done testing on them on the LLT. They have a thread in the V6 bolt on section somewhere and in that thread they claim 15rwhp on an LLT V6. Not sure what these would do for the LFX, but I would think it would still be pretty decent.

Glad this works for you LFX guys....you can't do headers so this is the next best thing and the good part is you will get 3/4 or more of the gain that an LLT gets with real long tube headers.

I've always questioned it too, but I just figured that if SOLO told him that they'd fit, then they must.

Really, if there is a flange in front of the cats on the LFX that can be unbolted, then they likely do work, but I'd make SURE before I ordered.

LFX owners the above warning is correct... I spoke with Steve @ Solo last week & confirmed the same info advised above (cat back fits, hi-flows a no go). They are in the R&D phase with no ETA to market.
