    My exhaust doesnt dump before the axle but with dual 2.5" straight pipes no cats or muffs it rattles the neighbors cookie jars. It is VERY loud but if your not a puss youll enjoy the smooth sound of screaming exhaust. I can't wait to upgrade to the 3" straight pipe sitting in my garage for a deeper sound.

    So far I have a Whisper lid punched the screen out of the maf, 160 stat headers and a predator that I had to send back for a tune. When the weather gets a little more stable around here I am putting the 3" pipes on.

    After watching the Vid I would have swore that was my car except I have an 02 WS6 the 3" is a little deeper I definetly like the sound better. 2.5" is a little raspy and crackles a bit but nothing to bad. PPL love the way the car sounds. What is your set-up?

    That is quiet a set-up. What Hp range are you pushing? I bet you turn some heads. I like to think I am a rolling rumble symphony giving everyone in ear shot a taste of good music.

    Haven't gotten a complete tune on her yet. Only about 75 miles on the motor actually.
    Looking for roughly 500 RWHP.

    Good luck 500 is a strong number but easily done these motors have an endless amount of potential. It comes down to how much $$ you wanna lay down. I have kind of taken an interest in the new STS kits out there but I am very much an natural aspiration kind of guy.

    That is basicly my goal.
    If I can see 500 RWHP off a fairly streetable car...I will be happy.
    Of course...mine is N/A.

    My main goal for now is to not over power the stock driveline and start breaking things (rearend tranny clutch) you know. But at the same time I want to have a damn good time with my car. I wish I didnt have so many projects that way I could dedicate all my time and money to the TA but thats life.

    I hope I don't get called a "smart-ass" too but I agree! I've been told by several mechanics that this is exactly what will happen. I know you wanna be unique but it ain't gonna be unique sitting in the shop with burnt up valves!

    Open headers won't burn your valves.
    No pipes off the heads would.

    There really aren't exhaust hangers until fairly far back in the car. The first one I can think of is the bracket that holds the Y-pipe up on the passenger side towards the back. You could weld in new hangers without any problems, if you put them in the right place.

    I have pacesetter long tubes running through a flowmaster with a cutout in the Y-pipe. Honestly, with the cutout open, it sounds almost the same as when I started it with open headers. It may be a tiny bit quieter or less raspy, but not much. The good thing about the electric cutout is that I can close it and make the car fairly quiet when I want to.

    I'm with this guy. Doesn't the LS1 require some kind of back pressure?

    if you run them for a long period of time they will eventully burn. i got a 327 sitting in my garage with burnt vavles because we ran open headers because we were too cheap to put an exhaust on the Nova. we put about 5k miles on it and they burnt.
