Aftermarket dual mode exhaust?

Hello everyone, i ran into this video of a billy boat aftermarket exhaust for the ZL1 that retains the dual mode...
- Does anyone have experience with this product? (maybe even from the vette)?
- Do other manufacturers offer dual mode aftermarket exhausts?

P.S. the power gain is a mute point especially since we dont see/know what happens at higher RPMs...

Some guys in my Corvette club have the dual mode Billy Boat exhaust, they seem to like it a lot. I think it sounds OK.

I have the billy boat exhaust ordered & it should ship next week. I'm going to have it put on with my header install. I will let everyone know how it sounds when I get it on the car. Billy boat products seem to be very well made.

On the z06's the billy boat sounds better than stock. But the stock mufflers are very quiet on those cars.

I am not a huge fan. I liked the borla Stingers on my z06 better than the corsa or billy boat. the borla had the most drone of the three though.

I have yet to find the perfect balance no drone but awesome sound at idle and wot. The billy boat was my least favorite of those three overall.
