I agree. The AFM needs to be tuned out. You fall into the group for this kit then.

It sounds awesome with the long tubes. It is hard to put it into words. It is almost like straight pipe without the edge. Does that make sense?

Chris,

will the new 3 inch system be avail as only an Axleback? I have the ARH system w/ stock axleback. I am looking for a change as I will be adding a blower soon.

Retail price for the ATAK is 1599.99. Of course much less through one of our distributors. Such as Maryland Speed.

I am not 100% sure. Most likely not, because of any possible fitment issues. I will definitely bring it up though.

I might swap the s-types out if they do axle back with the atak...
I have longtubes and the s-types sound sick with them.. I'm guessing with the ataks it will sound insane with longtubes

So, I'm getting ready to put Kooks 1 7/8" LT catted headers on my car along with a tune. I already have a CAI intake. I have an L99. I want my car to sound like a V8, but I do not want an annoying drone on the highway. Are you recommending the touring system from the cats back for my car or is there no non-stock exhaust that will eliminate the L99 drone? I will stay with the stock exhaust rather than get that drone. Should I wait and get the 3" pipes? - I will be the first to admit I'm a novice at this, so I ask lots of questions before diving in. Thanks.

No need for the 3 inch at your power level. The complete touring cat-back is the way to go. With the long tubes and high flow cats it will sound great without being obnoxious while cruising.

Chris,

I currently have the S-Type cat-back with Kooks headers, and the sound is sweet! I do have some drone at certain RPMs, but not enough to really bother me. Is the ATAK system going to be better or worse when it comes to drone?

1st thing i would do is shut off the AFM when u get it tuned. that should resolve 95% of ANY drone issue.

2nd, i read the ATAK is comparable to Corsa as far as the "No Drone" at cruising speeds. my wife wanted the "No Drone" and convinced me to go with Corsa. i will say that when driving nicely and crusing down the highway - it's stock quiet (with Kooks 1 7/8" LT's and cats). but when you get into the gas, it comes alive.

my understanding is that the ATAK achieves the same goal. i however, like the ATAK tone under throttle better.

also remember that the axelback will be a tad quieter than catback - the stock H pipe has 2 resonators in it.

Interior resonance is going to be similar to the S type.

Thanks Chris. After hearing them I think I still like my S, but I would be interested in hearing the ATAK in person. Are you guys going to be at C5?

Also, if I did decide at some point to go with the ATAK, would I have to replace the entire system, or could I just get the mufflers?

I would think they would make just the axle back just like they do with the other types... That's what I'm hoping for.. Lets see this week I want to go with the S-types, easy enough to change out.. Then when you want to make a scene you throw the ataks on

I've got the type S with a set of longtubes and i've got some extra goodies Namely a TVS2300 supercharger. Would it be worthwhile to get the ATAK system? I really like the sound it makes.

Here's a link to the Camaro ATAK exhaust on the Borla website. Please look for a local distributor. Prices on Borla's website are full retail.

I hope orders come in soon, so we can get a review. I have been very happy with my Solo Mach X exhaust, but this ATAK sounds unbelievable! I found the link that Borla gave. I saw that one yesterday, but I didn't see where it said "ATAK". My only concern would be resonance. It seems something that loud, has to make it in the cabin. My Solo, like the Corsa guys, has no drone. I have to say, I'm impressed so far...

I'm also interested in this. I am getting LT headers soon. I'm more interested in the touring exhaust though.

The excellent comparison you guys took the time to make has pretty much sold me on the ATAK system. Can we get an audio clip of the ATAK with some LT's as stated above? That would pretty much seal the deal for me!
