Please post pics of your J-pipes

I have a 2010 SS M6 with Stainless Power LT headers (w/ hi-flo cats) and a Flowmaster cat-back system. I get quite a drone between 1,800-2,000 RPMs. I want to have some j-pipes installed and the guy at the exhaust shop wants to see some pictures of what I want. Can you help a brother out?

Pics are on SOLO site, they have a J-pipe kit I think and you just weld them in. Give em a call!

This is a pic of thier whole system but it shows the J-pipes really good.

Honestly, I would just order the whole system and put it in, sell the old system. I know it sounds crazy but Flowmaster is just a droning POS.

J pipes need to be engineered in order to eliminate drone, I second zz430 in saying that you should just order the full system.

I've been considering it, but I thought that J-pipes would be cheaper. Looks like there is a little more to it than that. At one time, I found a website that helps calculate the length of the J-pipe, but I'm having a hard time finding it again...

The axleback system is a lot cheaper but I feel you on the cost.

True, the axleback would be cheaper. I think the resonator in the full system will help with the quality of the sound

Video is annoying but there are some good sound clips of that system.

Here's a couple of clips of my exhaust:

Pre tune exhaust clip

Post tune exhaust clip

I have Solo Mach XL catback with catted Kooks LT's. AFM is still enabled post tune even though everyone says they can't stand how bad it drones on their cars, I have never had any issues with it. Also, I listen to my radio at volume level 6 with no issues hearing it unless I'm WOT.

See my members thread: Blackbee’s big brother, Red Baron for pics. If they are made they must be if the correct length to kill drone in a specific rpm range 2” pipes and if possible adjustable end caps to change length to adjust as needed. S, or j shape it doesn’t matter

Thanks man. I found the pictures and I'm stealing them if i decide to have my exhaust guy make me some J(S)-pipes. Hope you don't mind!
