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.

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 think I understood what you are saying....

"It's not easy to here the exhaust for me anyway"? Is that what your drunk ass was trying to type?

I'm sure some vendors may want to get involved with this one too.
