Here is mine. To really get the sound try earphones. Solo Axle-backs, Roto-fab intake and Cortex tune.

Awesome feedback, SOLO has seen much success with the g8 community. I still love that initial bark on cold-start .... music to my ears. But I have a slightly different solo config, headers, hfc's, and my favorite of all solo setups, "mach unbalanced catback" ...

Welcome to the solo club.

Wait till they carbon up a bit from a few hundred miles of driving... they should sound even better.

If you're wondering the difference... this thread may help you decide!

http://www.g8board.com/forums/showthread.php?t=66137

Axlebacks are not really able to do this "choice" because they're just axlebacks with a common stock or xpipe "between cats and axlebacks" section.

But if you're looking for a refined sound that was engineered by SOLO from the cats back, and you have slightly more budget to consider, depending on your future mod plans.... catback is where it is at!!

That linked thread above has more info if you are interested... I prefer the uneven lope (like my vid on my youtube channel) of the mach unbalanced.
