I would be interested to know how much this is costing you as well. Besides, I dont think anyone here is going to hold "him" (the secret person making the exhaust) to the price he is giving you, 1. Because you never said directly who he is. and 2. Because there's probably not too many people willing to wait/pay for such item just to come from overseas.

This thread is a wonderful story... with no details.

Personally, I like the 04 rear bumper better than the 05-06. I'd almost be willing to trade my 05-06 for one.

Exhaust should be sweet. Keep us posted.

Yeah, THAT exhaust was. The one I'm getting is not anywhere online OR anywhere else for that matter. It'll be something totally new for pretty much anyone in the US...

Is there a goal to market this in the US for other 04 owners? Or will this be a one time build.

I guess $1300 isn't a bad price assuming that is built and shipped. Since a Corsa/Magnaflow costs $800-$900 and ship within the US.

Only way I would justify that price is if the dual mode feature acts as quiet as stock (tone/drone wise) on highway and opens up to sound like all hell broke loose similar to Corsa at WOT.

I'm toying with the idea of making my own dual mode system. It wouldn't be "new" but it's not something you see on the new GTO's. The "original" GTO's came with a factory installed dual mode system I believe.

Company called Waldron makes replica systems for the old muscle cars.

Right now it'll be one-off, for me. I don't think Wortec has any plans to sell this particular exhaust any time soon since it's kind of "outdated" anyway.

$1300 is what I paid, with a hook-up so if they were to sell it here, I can only imagine it being more than that.

I don't know where people keep getting the dual mode idea? That's not the exhaust I'm getting, unless it magically appears on there without them telling me. It's not the exhaust for the G8/Commodore, it's for an 04/05 LS1 Monaro in the UK.

As for the sound, I don't have any sound clips or anything until I get it and test it.

sounds similar to a magnaflow race system.

For the OP's wallet's sake, I hope it's different enough. You have systems ranging from Magnaflow/Bassani (mellow and smooth) to Spintech/Corsa (wild and loud) and systems/combos in between.

That would be the LS2 not the LS1 but, from what I've been told by the guys building the exaust; "It sounds like the LS2's exhaust but, with more bite."

Why post before you got it? Lame. Where the pics he sent if it's getting shipped?

I'm so mad at you. I read five pages on my phone expecting something exciting to show up..

That's pretty cool looking, bet it will sound rad! Do you prefer the single exit exhaust over cutting the bumper for a split dual?
