i love it:gears:

its certainly loud enough to scare women and children. and its got a nice old school muscle car sound. plus, since the LS2 has a decent cam from the factory, you can actually hear a bit of cam lope:thumbs:

and a big thanks to Black Devil for installing these for me while i stood there and watched. maybe held a few things up for him, but that was it:secret:

as for drone, none except for luggin up a hill in 4th gear with the converter locked with the windows open. so yea, none:)

oh yea, smells funny too:gr_devil:

pics: when i decide to get off my lazy ass and take some:)

vids: when BD sends them to me:)

Very true. I had the kink taken out for 30 bucks at Maryland Muffler. Vince the guy there does excellent work. Also I had him remove the resonator with a custom H-pipe he made for 60.00. So for 90 bucks a got a pretty good cat-back.

The kink is going to be fixed soon. He has to replenish his wallet.

Jon will have the video later today. He will post it. I shot the video for him, after we washed our cars.

I have this same setup, the sound is ok, but a bit too much metallic noise for my taste. I realize the tubing is much thinner then before, but it just isn't that deep pure sound I wanted, and I don't think a catback is going to fix it, I would think it would only let the metallic sound come out even more. I could be wrong.

yep, resonator is coming out and being replaced by an H pipe, and then the kinks will be taken care of:)

Get a louder exhaust. The tinny sound will hardly be noticable.

Jon, you got a PM. Sound clip

Glad you're happy Jon. I'm interested to see what the kooks sound like through the stock cat-back.

Glad to see you've got the glase off those rears. Now, rotate them, and do the other tires.
