The video DOES NOT do this car justice! It's like STUPID loud! When he borrowed my Solo's and left my house I could hear him like a mile away from my house just cruising. When he got onto 695 like 3 or 4 miles from my house I could hear him hammering down on it! In park, idling it shakes stuff on my walls in my house!

Glad you like them Travis!

Yeah, after hearing some LT exhausts with Solo axlebacks I'm thinking this is the route I'm gonna go. I want the car loud.

2009.5 SBM GT: Lots of show with some go.
The garage queen.

2008 IOM GT: Some go, working on the show.
The daily driver.

2004 Blazer Xtreme: Lots of go.
Sold and will be missed.

thanks T! my bad, badgto, i thought my sig had all the details but for those wondering about the setup, it's LOUD when you want it but you can also keep it tame when you want too. The cold start is a beast but once it starts to idle it's a lot easier on the ears. The Solos are just downright RAW and I wish I would've gone that route sooner! Very happy with them!!

I let my wife listed to the video of your car and she said it was TOO loud. But I had already purchased the Solo Axlebacks to go with my ARH full setup, meaning no mufflers here also soon enough. I've learned that it's better to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Oh yeah, they definitely sound awesome. And you can keep it docile if you really want to. I've noticed that after just a few days of driving they've sorta broken in and aren't as loud.

I just have the solo axlebacks and love them as well. The one thing that sucks you have to get a complete new exhaust if you ever decide to upgrade from the axlebacks to cat backs.
