Have you ever been under a 5th gen? A zl1 exhaust and a g8 exhaust are nothing alike. Is it doable? Sure.. but why would you

That car def sounds cammed for 1. And how much will the zl1 exhaust cost you? The are suitable g8 performance exhausts that will meet your needs

Brand new zl1 exhaust was donated to me so it cost me nothing and yes that car is cammed. It will still be nice though. I have a cam and supercharger for my G8

My biggest conern would be how it looks cosmetically. In the video you can see the mufflers aren't tucked under the car. correctly. I bet that guys dragging his mufflers on steeper inclines

the zl1 exhaust is nothing big , same as the 1LE and dual mode SS's

i was going to but it to much custom work to make it work , and alot of hatchet work on the muffler outlets , since their mufflers are on a angle , and ours are lined up front to back

In the year that the exhaust has been on the car it has only been scraped once on a RIDICULOUSLY steep driveway.

I do not have any pictures. we had to modify the pipes leading to the mufflers so that they would clear just right. i love them but i am unsure if i will be using them coming up being i am going turbo.

Quick question - does anyone know if the Z/28 exhaust is similar to/the same as the ZL1? I've driven a '14 Z and the exhaust is so raw and throaty sounding, but has a bit of a dual-volume from what I remember.
