Solo Performance exhaust with High Flow Cats with sound clip

Finally got a decent sound clip of my car. The setup is:

Solo Performance Mach X-LFX cat back exhaust
Solo Performance High Flow cats
Cold Air Induction by CAI
Ported Throttle Body

Have had this setup for over a month...no CEL lights....no problems at all.

Sounds much better with ear buds...but Ok without. Thanks to my buddy Tim (tjk_art) for making the sound clip for me!

It is a compilation of 3 videos...one at idle one at take off and one drive by...

No drone at all. That is one reason I went with the Solo Performance exhaust. The J pipes stop the drone! That is why I didn't go with the MRT 2.0 as well....or similar exhaust. the Ported Tb is OK...good bang for the buck...it helped the dead spot some...and that is what I was after.

Thanks! The HFC's are definitely going to make it a little louder, deeper...a buddy of mine has the MRT 2.0 and side by side mine is louder and deeper at idle than his (not obnoxiously) and I feel it is because of the the HFCs. Plus I feel like the car is more responsive now with the HFCs.

Could not agree more. I was on the fence when I ordered and am so glad I did now. To me, Solo has the best sounding exhaust, for the v6, on the market.

Me too. Love my sound now and spending that kind of money and ruining it would just tick me off. If it added a slightly deeper sound than I would be all for it. Hopefully someone that has the MRT V2.0 and has put these on will post a sound clip.

You'll probably see some nice gains with the cats, not sure about the exhaust.

I have not done any dyno testing, but I can feel like the car has more HP, which is subjective. I also do have the HFCs. I believe according to Steve, the combo of cats and exhaust will add 20+HP.... it is enough to tell. I like to describe the car now as a lot more responsive when I hit the gas.
