GMPP Exhaust (Axle Back) Sound Video Clip

Hey All! Thought you might like to hear the GM Performance axle back exhaust. Had it installed yesterday. It greatly improved the exhaust note and gave the V8 some growl. Don't have any video from in the car but I can tell you it just purrrrs and there is no drone. Although you can't really see it, these have the Chevrolet Bowtie emblem on top of the tips.

Easily the best sounding axle-back exhaust to me. Couple that son of a bitch with some headers and maybe an x-pipe and you'll have one sweet setup. The tips alone make this thing worth it.

Very nice.... sounds quiet, but like all the rest I'm sure it really opens up at WOT... Looks muuuuch better minus the trash can mufflers and with those tips...

Thanks for posting... Need to add this one to the Exhaust Thread...

Sounds good SS_IN_Black! Where'd you have it installed?? How much did it set you back?

Can you take some vid of a drive by? Loading the engine really changes the exhaust note... Sounds great though!

BTW, where are you in Va?

I'll try to get some drive by clips tomorrow. It was $825 installed at the dealer. That included an overnight delivery fee of $30.


I'm just south of Richmond... Chesterfield. How about you?

Im about an hour and change north of richmond in a tiny town called King George right off of 301.

Shweet, the new exhaust sounds good. Any plans for headers?? Im really curious now to hear the GMPP with a set of ARH headers and cats!

Z3 and jumper, thanks for the comments. The total with installation was $825. My dealer did the installation. It only took 45 minutes but everyone in the shop had to gather together to hear the first start since it was the first one they had put on. Big applause when it fired up. I was out of there in an hour. My dealership is great. Even invited me out to the shop floor to make sure the tips were where I wanted them before the tightened them up. Get that service at a BMW dealer... dare ya!

sounds great, what system did you order i think there is 3 type, w/o tips, w/tips, and w/tips off road use only?
*edit: the off road use only is for the LS3 as i see now you have an L99
http://www.gmaccessorieszone.com/Che...1[type]=gm
any chance of a video of a take off and drive by, and maybe a rev video from outside instead of being in a smaller space like that?

My stock L99 is whisper quiet, you cannot hear the car from 30 feet away. This sounds very nice, no popping either.

Mine is too. I came out of Walmart yesterday and a bunch of guys were standing around my car. They just loved it. I was a little afraid, because they were walking around looking at it and taking pictures. It was also getting dark outside. So I'm glad I got out to my car when I did. Its a little scary when its 9pm at night and you come out of a store and there's a big group of people standing around your car.

After introducing myself as the owner, they asked me to start it up so they could hear it. I had to tell them, there's nothing to hear. Its very quiet, but that I will be changing.


But saying that. When I start my car in the garage (as in the video) and I get behind it, it has a nice sound to it. And if I have someone rev the motor, it does sounds good. Have someone start your car in the garage and stand behind it. Then have them rev it. It actually sounds good.
But on the open road or just starting it up once the engines warm (and not in a garage), its extremely quiet (as you say whisper quiet).

The car definately needs to be more aggressive to match its personality.

...or just use the remote start function when you're behind the car
You are right, at start up there is a nice rumble but it lasts at idle just for a short time. I also noticed that once warmed up the exhaust is much quieter.

I'm just waiting until the right exhaust for the right price is available. Headers will come later.

Yeah my M6 LS3 is nice and loud in the garage. But out on the street, not quite so loud. I like the sound of the GMPP exhaust, but now im really curious to hear what it sounds like on an M6 with a set of headers.

My biggest fear is to drop a ton of money and then not be happy with the sound! I dont want a blaringly loud exhaust setup. Deep at idle, and a little loud at WOT, not all the time.

So far the best I've heard for a full system is the SLP with Powerflo mufflers, just loud enough, nice idle, and doesnt sound like a diesel when it's just sitting and idling!

Should be interesting to see as more guys get this exhaust on their SS's.

I hope someone has time to record a launch and drive by video. So far I like it.

Just called my dealer and told him to order the GMPP exhaust. Should be here when my car arrives and they can install right away.

Sounds great and looks even better. It'd be nice to know which kit you went with though
