    I could hardly hear my cam before, but open that valve and it rumbles like crazy at idle, and wails like a Sprint Cup car at WOT

    [QUOTE=Too Fast;2807092] I've heard some of these cut-outs, they are loud! And then you can shut it and be relatively quiet again.

    Thats the reason id go for co instead of and all the time loud muffler set up. Ive got Magnaflow right now and granted it has a nice rumble to it and howls pretty good at wot BUT sometimes some other muscles with Flows or the louder SLP`s LM`s come by at a stop light at idle and theirs is rumblin away .I also want c/o because i can be stealth around the cops and loud any other time.

    I might have misunderstood the site, but are different manufacturers headers, y-pipes and rear sections inter-compatible?


    Cheers.

Depends if you want the whole neighborhood to hear the American pushrod V8 or just the neighbor! Also it depends on the Y-pipe, is it with convertors or not. Convertors will calm the sound.
    Agree with^ I did the internet thing and its real hard to judge the true sounds,It does make it easier since you know what sound in general your looking for though, No matter what you get theres always someone who thinks that their set up is better ,,,so you just have to try and hear them in person from a car like yours to hear the differences...because a certain set up on an SS will sound different on a Mustang or a Chrysler etc etc.Good Luck and let us know what you get!

    I take it you haven't installed headers yet. I loved my magnaflow with LTs and an ORY

    ^^^Your catted Y helps make the sound so deep and non raspy.

    Tater-saw your videos on Youtube....i think it gets the message across pretty good ,on how your exhaust sounds. I like the one of that kid in a WS6 w/open headers - he was having so much fun with his ''toy''-but i think he did the infamous 3rd gear miss a few times..been there done that we talked about why already so.....anyway think you need to do more videos though..some screamin burnouts maybe?.

    Here's how my exhaust sounds -



    QTP LT's into a custom stainless ORY, back to an adjustable Borla, with no restrictor plates. It'll draw some attention.

    When you do, if possible, don't visit just London; it's very expensive and doesn't really reflect the whole country. Most of all, prepare for shocking gas prices they'll make your eyes water.

    It certainly is a head turner.

    ^^ Im sure your gas prices are higher and its per liter but just in the last two days California gas prices are up to $5.00 + in some cities its like $ 5.65 for just regular !!...not even super...The oil shiesters are blaming a recent fire @ Chevron refinery in Vallejo and one in southern Calif. for the dramatic price increase saying that the supply and reserves are very low...i know that in other parts of the country and world this is nothing but its alot to the average working joe....and muscle car owners.

    I've said it in the past, wait a couple years and $5 a gallon gas will be normal fair. It's only a matter of time before everyone see's it, not just California.

    Our reserves are low because some dip shit decided it was a good idea to ship some of our oil reserve over seas where they can get more money for it. Just like they are selling our hay and alfalfa over seas now, and guess what,,,,Now they are predicting a shortage and prices are going up. Whodathunkit. Our government is just brilliant.

    YUP ! I agree here there trying to divert water with this peripheral canal crap so that it diverts water fron N.Cal to S.Cal and they also want to spend money on a stupid high speed bullet train that will cost the state tax payers millions,probably billions of dollars... money we dont have! Our roads and infastructure are crumbling at our feet, police and fire stations are closing theres NO jobs people are loosing their homes to forclosure and some ass wipes want to waste money on useless projects so they can get their names slapped on it for stature! Time for a change!
