GUYS WITH SOLO-PERFORMANCE EXHAUST, QUESTION

I have pretty much made up my mind to get a solo performance exhaust. I need help on which one to get, Axle or Cat back. Money is really not issue. I'm looking for opinions and for people who know which one sounds better.
Both have no drone and are basically the sound I'm going for and although I'm leaning towards the cat back I can't help but notice the Axle seems to sound better to me..
Please any insight you can give me into my decision making will greatly be appreciated... and the sooner the better cause I Need something quick... Thanks in advance solo owners.
Eric

Cat back all the way ! Then get some long tubes and high flows. That's what I'm running and I get complements all the time on how great she sounds, best part is she is still drone free and quite in the cabin... Untill a get on her! Then it's just music!

There are only two options in life. Fight or flight. Most people run. Almost all people run. But not us. The difference between us and everyone else is that we run towards the gunfire. And that makes all the difference.

The axle back is a little more raw of a sound and some people really like that. The catback is a little deeper. We generally recommend the catback if money isn't a big factory. If you ever decide to go with headers down the road the axle back will get real LOUD since you won't have any true mufflers. With the catback it'll get loud but not as over the top.

Pretty sure he has an SS but you're right on the break in. After about 500 miles or so the catback does get a lot more aggressive!

I havent heard the axle back in person, but I'm running SOLO high flow cats and Mach XL cat back and LOVE IT! It sounds AMAZING! I have had many exhaust set-ups on many different cars/trucks/ engines and this one on the Camaro by far is the best sounding exhaust!

We haven't had any drone complaints on manuals but have heard a few gripes with the L99 cars but nothing excessive.

We do except paypal and I'm pretty sure they have the bill me later option. So you can order through our site and select paypal as your billing option. That should work!
