Thanks.

And, ya, what may be quiet to you may be loud to me. Never know, but Tim did say that the L99 tends to be a lot louder.

I put a Borla catback Touring exhaust on mine with Kooks LT headers. It's as loud as I'd ever want it to be. The headers will add a lot of sound by themselves.

I have the GMPP street version on now with LT Headers and it really is quiet, once you get about 3500 rpms it opens the sound up. From the video's on Borla's website none of them really sound loud but then again it's a video.

Are ya'll talkking about cat back or axle back systems

Yup. And the car Borla was using for the Atak examples was an LS3. I'm thinking that based on how I explained to Tim that I wanted it, he is thinking the atak may be too loud.

Cat back. For me. Plus, again, you have an LS3 like the car in their vids. Something about VVT or something that tends to make the L99 louder, espec in the cabin.

Yeah the Atak by itself is freakishly loud. Add LTH and it sounds like you have a freaking monster lol.

The car in the Borla video did not have headers. Headers add a lot of sound.

Damn. lmao

True, I didn't notice that.

I think Tim has taken this into consideration. I told him I want my car to turn heads when I start it and get on it, but not piss people off. lol

Are you going to do the S/C at the same time as the headers and exhaust, are you changing the cam also?

No and no.

I'm ordering the headers and exhaust, CAI, tuner and installing it myself.

I will drive to T and T to do the Maggie. And it will be later. Maybe 3 months, maybe 6, maybe a year or more. Just depends on this freaking oil in the water down here and how it continues to effect us.

PQ-
It depends on what your definition of "turn heads" is. When I start my car and get on it, it turns heads. It sound kick ass. When I'm cruising, it's quiet enough to listen to music. You might want to find a car with LT headers and S-type before deciding.

For myself, I'm VERY glad I didn't get a more aggressive exhaust than the touring exhaust with my headers. It really sounds great to me.

That is good that you can do that kind of stuff yourself, definitely saves some money.

The oil has got everything messed up, hopefully soon it will get better for ya'll down there.
