Exhaust sample line-up???????

Ok, I get lot's of PMs on exhaust advice as do I'm sure some of you.

It's one of the hardest things to determine. What exhaust set-up to get.

Too loud, too soft, too raspy, too deep, is it throaty enough, does 3" sound better than 2.5 and on and on and on.

AND THAT's JUST FOR ONE TYPE. Different companies, mufflers for each and so on. Cammed, not cammed, all kinds of different ones.

So many exhaust possibilities and only the limited YouTube videos to go by. Helpful? Not really. A bit I guess gut the audio on a youtube vid through speaker a thousand miles away just doesn't help enough.

So many different combinations to choose from.

I have had a number of people I tried to help but was afraid to advise them throughout the purchase. Just didn't want to be responsible in any way for their remorse if they were unhappy with it. And I know guys and gals who have been in that category.

.
.
.

OK

I said all of that to say this.

I'm just gauging if any of you would be willing at the fest just for an hour or so to line your modded cars up so people could sample your exhausts? Where better than a place with 500+ Camaros? LOL

I'd get a list from the different members and the different set-ups and line them up and label them as such so people could get a sample of what each sounds like.

Best time to do it would be in an area of the parking (lot if there is room) in the evening because a lot of potential sample cars will be racing.

Might not be a great idea so I am just gauging if anyone would be willing and if anyone thinks it could help those who are looking. If there is enough interest I'd coordinate the different cars to line up for a sampling. Owners would have to be willing to come out for an hour or so. Don't have to run the car the whole time but be willing to start it up a number of times.

Any interest at all in an exhaust line-up???

I think this is a GREAT idea!!

If there's enough interest, I'm sure we could schedule a block of time one day to line'em up so people could be taken through some samples one at a time...

The car show at the track may be another option...

True. If I could get a list of all the different set-ups. Maybe even get me some type of signage to list the equipment for the shoppers.

Great idea Randy! That would be like a "Whitmans Sampler" of exhaust ideas. Or, if you will, an "Amsterdam brothel" of exhaust ideas.
seriously, a very good idea.

As we lead up to the Fest we will know more wether or not it's a good idea.

I have told 3 or 4 people who are asking about exhaust help to just go the C5FIII to here all the exhaust they want.

IF we do this it would have to be when no one is racing and there isn't a lot of outside noise. But I don't mind displaying my exhaust for the V6 guys.

As long as there's plenty of time. Which there should be.

If it's not easy to here it's not the exhaust for me anyway.

I'm not going to the Fest.. but I love this idea. I'm a shopper..actively shopping but as op posted.. so many choices, combinations and youtube videos just don't cut the mustard.

Maybe we can get something like that setup at our Sunshine State Rally next month..

I know listening to an exhaust system live is the best to make a decision from. However, with all these cars doing this in a row, will anybody really be able to tell who is producing what sound.

Also, there are different sounds to me, idle and revving while in park, listening to it at speed while inside the Camaro with windows up and down. Then listening to it as others hear it when you blow by them at highway speeds.

So I am not sure this idea will work, but to each there own. Good Luck.



Another option for the V6 folks is to take a look and listen to this thread. This was started 2 years ago and has slowly accumulated every know combination to date that the V6 has to offer.

Thank - you to all the hard work by KMPrenger for keeping it up to date.

This is a great idea
If I am there I would demo

This is a tough one cause I think engine mods also come into play a little for guys and gals looking at just exhaust. But I am sure with this many camaros around you will hear it all. Also listen at the drags and if you hear something you like ask them

My set up will be
Whipple sc, long tube ARH, rotofab CAI, magna flow cat back center port exhaust

I like it. I'll treat you to a stock GM V6 sample all day. Have to turn the other cars off and be very quiet though.

To caveat, why not something like a "Rev Zone" as well like at F Body? No burn outs, just a dedicated "drive by" area and a 4k rev.

As time goes on I'll update the set-up info of those who will be there and willing. We have plenty of time.

Engine mods will surely play a roll. I do think that the exhaust systems will still manifest themselves enough to help a shopper and they could ask about drone and maybe even sit in the passenger seat of the car while the owner revs a little.

If it isn't easy to hear then it isn't the exhaust for me anyway.

Meaning if I can't hear it easily then I'd want a louder exhaust.

Sounds like a great idea, but here's a question. Do mufflers sound different with different brands of long tube headers?

I wish I could enter my car in, but there's no one in the world with an exhaust system like mine, nor will there be one.
