Solo Mach Shorty Catback on my V6 I LUV IT...

firstly I like to thank BlackPantherG8 if it wasn't for him and Hazer giving me great info wouldn't even have thought this was even possible especially Headers and HFC's which will probably be done next month...

Like to thank the guys at Zorro Muffler in Hamilton Especially Brian Vanier they did a helluva job this morning...

It sounds F'N awesome lol cannot wait to get the headers on but right now it sounds amazing... Its quieter in cabin than my V6 axle backs will post Vid clips a little later but I am going to sleep..

Interested to hear this. I figure if no video within 2 hours he gets temporary ban until he can prove to the mods he has a clip lol.

I love the sounds of the Solo mach shorty on the V8 interested what it sounds like on the V6.

Sounds great. Very similar to Panther's. Him and Hazer have the two most done up 6s I've seen.

Only thing I don't like (not a big deal) is the start up sound. Kinda sounds like my niece when she makes raspberry noises against a desk fan.

Dude that sounds pretty good! Going to sound even stronger once you put the headers and HFC's on. Good stuff.

I can't remember....

Do the Headers and / or HFCs need modification to fit? I remember reading something about the O2 sensors needing relocation? Or am I on the butt crack?

Been debating on whether to upgrade suspension or exhaust

Or buy a V8

Sounds pretty fantastic Rich. How's the cabin noise at cruising speed? More specifically, in overdrive (4th and 5th). Any drone? I'm thinking of a cat back but had some problems with the Solo Axlebacks so just curious. Can't wait to hear it in person.

strangely enough Jay more quiet at cruising speeds than my V6 axel backs I was fortunate I really never had drone issues with my axel backs but it drives better its more smooth...

Hells G8TE There needs to be fab work done but im getting the Headers & HFC's done thru Zorro, for the HFC's I haven't decided on which way too go yet still debating Pacesetter or Magnaflow...

I owe a lot to Hazer & BlackPantherG8 cause without those two guys I wouldn't have done it and Zepcom as well whom I picked his brain a little bit last week as well...
