The drone isnt that bad, just more of the loud resonance around 2300-3300 rpm.

Id just like to know what the sound is like from the inside. Since the gen5 has a significantly different exhaust setup (more cats, diff resonator ect). Is it deep and throaty or is there a fair bit of resonance and noise
MTron,

I did ride in the car and from what i can remember (it was a fast and short ride in a new SS so it was kinda sensory overload. I was more concerned about keeping bodily fluids in check...) it was a very deep sound however very separated and agressive at the same time. I've been in cars with diverters after a 2 into 1 exhaust or after "X" or "H" pipes and the sound gets muddier when its all pushed together. This Camaro sound on the other hand was much cleaner and sharper because its more of a direct route and each side is its own. Also there were no panel noise or rattling sounds - this car seems extremely solid and quiet- BMW like- which helps this issue you heard on the 2000.

I would ask Chad how it was on long runs at interstate speed- Im guessing if there was a slight irritating harmonic or drone that drove ya nuts you could back it off just a touch until it goes away. Unlike the loud pipe setups where you live with it forever.

Any chance you guys could get a video of what it sounds like from inside? Or do you not have the car anymore?

Also, have you done, or know of any installs on an auto v8?

Sorry we don't have any video from inside the car and the car is back in Iowa which is about 6 hours from us. This was a rather quick install and turnaround because of the distance Chad needed to drive to get home so we didn't get time to do much for video after the install.

We also have yet to do an automatic which im guessing will be an almost identical installation and result. I just need to verify some "S" pipe dimensions with the first person ready to do an automatic install and we will be good to go. We should be getting feedback in the form of customer videos soon and if we get another one close i will definitely take a ton of video/audio and post it here first.

Thanks for all the support, great comments, and questions! The flow of orders from you guys has been amazing and we truly appreciate it!

Do you have any authorized installers/dealers over on the east coast?

Nope, not yet. We ship our products that way- New York, Jersey, etc but our customers must be DIY or taking it to a local shop. No dealers or installers yet.

I have a request in to GM for the CAD files for the resonator box. When i get that file i can tell you without a doubt if we have issues or not. Good news on the approval by the way.

What are the effects of the exhaust diverters on

1) headers

2) super charger

does it complement them both well?

I too am very interested in this for the L99. Will patiently wait (like I am for my Camaro) to hear what you come up with. Noweeds, this does look like a heck of a product you've come up with!

Meh. Got my CAI. Tinting scheduled. Paint job scheduled. Not doing too much on performance yet. Either doing this or a loudmouth II. Getting impatient :(...
