If the SLP does what it did before with just a muffler delete I will be perfectly happy. I am already happy.

The only camera i have currently sucks. So I will find a way to take some videos. But as you all know, videos never do the actual sound justice. The idle is a nice low rumble.
Don't expect it to sound like a V8. but it does sound like a deeper V6 as one would expect.

Very Satisfied with exhaust
Probally wont do too much putting the LM1 back on (bit less drone). I'd say your better off just putting larger pipes out from the resonated xpipe to clean up and deepen the exhaust note further.

I plan on going with 3" pipes right to the back out of the resonated xpipe and using 3" tips to give it a clean finishing look. On that note, there is plenty of back pressure from your stock larger cats, the 2.5" pipes from your cats to the xpipe and of course from the xpipe itself as it is resonated. If you choose a true X what they call it, you'd loose back pressure like mad if you had no mufflers and used larger pipes.

The shop gave me a quote of $325 for the custom pipes material/welding/tip install.

If you want to completely remove drone, you can see what rpm range you'd like to get rid of drone and install some j pipes that will cancel it out at that frequency... best of both worlds there

Here is a stupid question I have but I've always wondered this...

Would'nt eliminating drone completely make the car very quiet kinda like stock but with just a deeper note? ( I mean quiet like from outside what others would hear from a decimal standpoint).

I've thought about j pipes too but I'd hate getting them and then find out the car is super quiet (back to stock basically) defeating the purpose of aggressive exhaust.

That's not a bad idea actually. I feel like the LM1 can't handle the amount of air flow.. every cold start sounds odd

No.

Drone and loudness do not necissarily go hand in hand. Now, of course if you have a loud exhaust you will hear it from inside the car, but it does not HAVE to drone either (or at least not much).

I rode in SIXJAK's car back when he had LT headers and the SOLO catback with J-pipes. That car was stinking loud! But inside was not that bad. Yes could hear the aggressive exhaust easily, but it didn't really drone much thanks to the J-pipes.

I think this really hits the sweet spot for a lovely sounding v6. Probably won't get turbos for this car ever. Roots blower much needed

Exhaust will be: BBk headers w/ high flow cats. Magnaflow res x pipe. Resonator delete. Lm1. Somewhat of a custom setup. Hoping this helps someone

Are you going to post your videos here or in a separate thread? We could post them together somewhere just for the ease of comparison

I love it too haha. I've heard straight pipes out the back, but the quality wasn't as good as the lm1. I'm probably going to go somewhere and do some various revving and have someone stand a few feet away
