Who's hacking? I think it looks good. Do need some better pics of the tips tho, they seem to protrude a little more than the stockers

Does the factory system have a H pipe? I can't tell I'm looking at it on the phone.

No hacking or welding involved. Unbolt and bolt on. Have not had it on the highway yet but while cruising at a steady speed it quiets right down and then barks when you excellerate. Pops quite a bit on deceleration. Have been told that it has a nice Corvette sound but then I also had a guy tell me he thought it was a motorcycle. He drives an Audi and a mustang so I don't take him to serious. I'll get some better pics of the tips and stock exhaust tomorrow. The tips do stick out further. I'll take a measurement and maybe someone else can provide one of a stock tip

The popping would annoy the hell out of me. I hated it when someone changed out their pipes on their harley and it did that. My guess is you'll need a tuneable ecm to get ride of it. That's why I always liked carbs on my harley. Same ecm just a swap of a jet and popping was gone.

this should be the same set up that stainless had on tag's car and should sound the same.

At least I think

The stock already crackled and popped. It's just louder now. I'm pretty sure tags is headers hi flow cats too. I know his car is a lot louder than mine

uh oh...a lot louder...hehe

I just hope it doesn't get too loud out on the highway. I like my smooth and somewhat quieter interior when on long road trips. I'll test it out on the trip out to Carlisle and see how it sounds. If it's too loud, I will have the more restrictive and quieter exhaust put on.

The popping is caused by Deceleration Fuel Cutoff (DFCO), it is caused by the injectors being cut off when letting off the gas in certain conditions, it can be tuned out but at the expense of fuel mileage

No comparison to TAG's Camaro...sorry. TAG's exhaust is the ultimate. Sets the bar for all others.

OP. Do not care for the idle at all...sorry. But the rev sounds good. This leads me to believe that the audio in person is way better than what the camera can reproduce on a sound clip coming out of these cheapo PC speakers so it's all good.

For those that don't like it that's a ok. I'm liking it a lot. Had it on the highway today at various speeds within the (cough cough) legal limits. Very slight drone when the cruise control excellerated which as easily fixed with a slight Boston accoustics adjustment. When at an even cruise the exhaust is barely noticable inside the car.

for those who don't like alot of drone, you probably haven't driven a muscle car before.

When I go out driving in my car, I'm not satisfied until I walk out at least partially deaf from the drone in the car.

Sweeeet. This is one thing that worries me...just being too loud on the highway. Stainless said, "on the highway, you could have a baby sleeping in the car, no problem. But, when you step on the go peddle, all bets are off!" So, we'll see.

Tom said that he drove mine to check for drone. Both stainless and Tom could not find any drone. That'll be a miracle is there isn't any.

Couple more pics. Sorry the numbers are about worn off all my scales from years of use and I couldn't get the camera to focus close enough to really see it. Anyway the new tips stick out approximately 3/4inch from the top portion of the hole in the rear facia. Someone was asking about the "h" pipe so here's better pics of the stock setup. I've been so busy that this is still in the back of my truck. Neighbor lady told me that last night around 1:30 some teenagers appeared to be messing with it. She came out and they were giving her a hard time until she told them that the only thing I love more than my guns is my cars. At that point they left.

I let a friend drive it yesterday so I could hear it start and hear it drive by. I really liked it. Quite a bit more than stock but not obnoxious. I won't be sneaking up on anyone but they won't be calling the cops either.

Sometimes I just want to edit people's posts just to edit their posts....lol.

D@mn, it's tough being the good guy!

That stock set up doesn't look bad....but that H-pipe?....well...it's obvious the new set up will flow a bit better than this one. Now...out of curiosity....do you think stainless is ready to ship my factory exhaust back?



...I mean....it IS still mine, right?

Can you weigh the stock exhaust system? I'd sure like to know what that weighs if you get the chance.

LOL. You don't ask for much Doc. I'll see what I can do. Tag just strap it to the roof of your car. It will create downforce and we can put you on the ricer page. Looks like it would be easy for them to cut it at existing welds and fit it right into a box or two. Just have them scribe it first for alignment in case you ever need it put back. I told the wife I'm going to decorate the gameroom in early 5th gen parts and make it manland.
