Doug Thorley Shorty Header and Cat-Back Videos

The much anticipated and poorly produced Synergy V6 DT Shorty and DT Exhaust videos. The day I borrowed the camera, Hurricane Alex started to arrive into town so lots of wind noise, sorry.

Exactly!

Great Vids Mike! I love em!

Tip: (no pun intended)-If you take some Mothers, or any metal polish for that matter, you can easily polish out those tips. They will shine up on the inside just the same as the outside!

Lookin great sir!

On my car that inner surface turns pitch black after about 20-30 miles of driving. I clean it about once a week but it always returns within a day or two.

Yup I don't go long before they get dirty. I had a limited time to use the camera to record the vids, and a hurricane was coming so I just wanted to capture some sounds. Sadly the exterior drive-by was kinda windy so didn't record that well.


I love the set and have quite a few compliments on the sound from members of our newly formed Camaro Club --Planet Pickup did the install for all you folks near SA TX

Thanks for the videos SynergySATX !

Any noticed difference in MPG?

Oh, and since I'm a noob on mods, what is the difference between having short tube headers and long tube headers?

The difference is in state legality (many states outlaw them) and HP and Torque gains. LTs will give you significant power. From what I read you will most likely have to tune your care with LTs as well. No need for that with these Shortys. I will check my MPGs but I think it isn't going to be a good (fair) read. I now tend to press hard until I can "feel" the new set-up underneath me. The other problem was the vast majority of miles were highway from my wife's trip oout to C5F, so my "before" mpgs were slanted to the highway traffic, I was showing about 24 mpg average. Now it is my daily driver and it is stop and spurt traffic in my short 20 mile commute.

That pedal is heavy isn't it Jon!??

LOL

You're runnin a little lean sir. Prolly why they are getting tarnished so fast. Not a big deal. Try putting some of your car wax on them once they're polished up. The soot will slide right off with minimal effort!

Aside from your hauling the mail, how's she runnin??!!

ME!! LOL

Right now were awaiting the completion of the latest batch of the V6 shorties. Like anything new and in high demand they are taking time more time than planned but the first customers are the ones that get the best prices!!

We have the Catbacks in stock and ready to ship.

PM me for prices one each.

Thanks for the referrals guys! We appreciate your business!
