Wife says exhaust is not loud enough

So I finally got my 2013 SS out today. The wife and I waited all winter to get it out and it was nice enough today. Took it out on the highway and we loved the ride. She says to me that the exhaust is not loud enough and I should get a new exhaust, then she says, " I can't believe I just said that" but "how much would it be?" I said I don't know. So, what is the best way to get it more "throaty" I just want to bring it up a notch.

Thanks for your input.

Love this car

Corsa catback = loud...

Many others as well... axle back will give you sound if you don't want to spend the money on catback... consider headers and high flow cats as well.

If it is an auto go with Corsa. Corsa has no drone.

Interesting. OP whst do you have? LS3 or L99. If LS3 well you can get whatever catches your ear. You can do the same with the L99 but there is AFM that eill be very noticeable depending on what you get. Might want to consider a tune or the Range device to eliminate AFM. I have the Flowmaster American Thunder axle back its loud and decent. I wanted a lil louder and the outlaws bly flowmaster are a lil louder. I also like the borla ATAK but those are super loud. Its all about what sounds good you. Not a fan of the corsa but thats just me. Others seem to like it.

You just opened a can of worms. Heres the question...do you want to tune your car and lose power train warranty however gain about 50 hp? if yes, then get yourself some Long tube headers and a tune and it will be louder with better performance. If you don't want to tune (ever) then get yourself some Solo Performance high flow cats. They bolt directly to your stock manifold and to the stock catback. You will gain a some nice hp and your exhaust will have a nice rumble with it. If you want more rumble then add on a catback system to the high flow cats. Not sure if you have LS3 or L99, but beware that if you have the L99 and you start to add aftermarket exhaust you will start to hear the AFM kick in and out and may drive you nuts.

I was surprised how much louder my car became with headers even though I opted for HF cats. Seems the cats dont hinder volume much either. Not as loud as most but definitely a good deal louder.

I don't know what it would sound like with a different set up, ie factory mufflers or otherwise but I have the jba cat less midpipes and 40 series flowmaster and It's pretttty loud . I would reccomend the catted I ones with whichever mufflers you like to get a more refined sound . That is If ur not looking to go LTs . The mid pipes bolt right in took me about 45 min taking my time . The 4 cats are a big part of what keeps the car so tame sounding, down side being I had a cel till I got it tuned but I've heard you'll be ok so long as u get the catted ones .just some o thoughts
