Just making this car run the way I believe it should. 55+ MPG highway with 200+ft/lbs and not your typical grandma car. I like surprising people on the highway.

They'll notice sooner or later. Here's a sound clip with the new gmpp exhaust. I love that it's not loud or ricey.

I still have to modify my custom downpipe and replace the hollow secondary cat with a straight tube and possibly a Helmholtz resonator to eliminate what little drone it may still have.

Soon to be the new exhaust setup. (Gmpp exhaust sounded stupid with my custom catless downpipe and second cat delete) It was a choice between magnaflow xl3 mufflers or stock resonators used as mufflers but when i saw the thrush turbo mufflers at autozone,I figured I'd give them a shot for only $30 each. I need to buy the mandrel bends and second exhaust hanger to make the new setup. But i tested just one of the mufflers and it should sound great with the y-pipe and second muffler.

I thought your last video of the exhaust note sounded very good. Nice and throaty with none of that annoying high-pitched ricer-boy blatting.

But then the muffler packing dissintegrated and sounded stupid. Remember i have a catless downpipe and a straight pipe in place of the second cat. Ive done side branch (quarter wave) resonators and theyve toned it down quite a bit and gave it a unique sound but it still has the ridiculous rasp.
