Stainless Works Re-Designed Cat Back

After hearing a lot of feedback on our original V-6 catback system, we listened to what everyone had to say and went back to the drawing board. We totally re-designed a new cat back system for the V-6, making the sound our main focus.

We just finished the final installation on the car today and we will have pictures, videos, part #'s & pricing available shortly. Any questions, let us know!

If it sounds even half as good as my cat-back, V6 guys will be very pleased.

I'm definitely interested in seeing a video of your new exhaust. Post it up when you can.

Are there alternate versions for the automatic and manual? It seems that exhaust manufacturers are offering different systems for the V6 based on this information. Although the factory exhaust is used in both applications, there are big differences once the "luggage" comes out from the rear of the cars. I'm also interested in the efforts put forth towards attaining the perfect exhaust note. Please post video/sound files soon!

That would be sweet if you did that as a side exhaust with a cover over it.

Thanks!

We went with the H-pipe over the X-pipe because it resonates better, resulting in a non-raspy, improved sound.

Got me thinking twice about the MRT 2.0, I was pretty dead set on it. It might come down to how much money I can save.

But I definitely enjoy the old school sound more on this one

Hey guys, here are some more pictures!

Also, something to keep in mind - This is a full 304 everlast stainless steel system from the converters back - not just an axle back. We worked long and hard to produce a system that not only sounds great, but looks awesome.

On with the pictures

That sounds really nice -- even during decel where other systems gurgle and pop.

But I've got to ask -- if sound was the primary focus, what does it do to performance? I'm ok if performance remained unchanged, but not ok if sound came at the expense of performance.

Also, does this system have any nice side-effects in the way of improved mileage like some others have?

Performance should remain un-changed from our previous system. Although, we didnt get a chance to dyno it, were confident that it flows just as good, if not better.

As far as nice side effects such as gas mileage, sure it does - just depends on how you drive it. Which is the case with anything you do for performance up grades.

Man that is such a sweet sounding exhaust. If you could do something in an axle back I'm certain you would sell a lot of them.
Nothing has been done in the concept Camaro exhaust tips or side exhaust.

VERY impressed with the sound you managed to get out of the V6. I originally wasn't going to dump money into something like this, but now I may just have to.

So is there any bad resonance at 2000 rpm during cruising speed?

From the photos, all the joints are slip fitted and were not welded or clamped on their exhaust. I'd say it was just so you could see what it looks like. They have several tips you can get on it. I went with the slash cut double wall as it gave the tip a thick tube look instead of a pipe.

The tips are polished 304 stainless steel.

The exhaust is not welded or clamped together in the pictures just for aesthetic purposes. You will use clamps once its on the car.
