Hey man, I can't personally attest to whether or not I've gained power because I put the pipes on before I had the car broken in, so I never had a chance to run it full out. But a fellow member got significant gains from this cheap and easy mod. Check out this link.

I'd love to do this but I'm not sure how well the inspections would go. Might have to get the slp loudmouth II or equivalent just to bypass the hassle. This sounds absolutely awesome though.

MikeBing we chatted about your exhaust a couple weeks ago and I just wanted to let you know I just got mine done today. Did it just the way you did and the sound level is just perfect, aggressive but not overbearing and another great thing it's a reasonable fix about $150.00 SO THANKS AGAIN FOR THE ADVICE IT WAS RIGHT ON

If anyone is interested, I have somewhat of a "before & after" comparison on my SS. I just got mine done today, and I am thrilled with the sound; exactly what I was looking for.


The weekend I got her:

Excellent, I'm glad to hear my information was useful to someone. And I'm glad you enjoy it. I still smile every time I start the car up

Not only does it sound better, it looks so much cleaner without those suitcases!

Great video! One question for ya: You say no drone? So what about in cabin noise on the highway cruising? I have a 2006 z71 tahoe y-pipe no muffler straights exactly like this setup and it has tons of cabin noise at highway speeds I hate it. Just curious

As you know Florida does not have emissions testing or inspections. As long as you keep your cats and don't cause a noise ordinance violation your good. A simple muffler delete won't be enough to cause a noise violation.

Sounds like just muffler delete, to be straifgt pipe you need to have headers without cats and remove resonators, videos of this are needed!!!! Please if anyone has straight pipes please post
