I finally got my SOLO Mach catback exhaust mounted on my GXP on Friday, and I love how it sounds! I was a little nervous that it was going to be too loud for my liking, but it seems just right. It has a nice throaty growl to it at idle, and good sound as the revs climb. I haven't had it over 4000 rpm yet since I'm breaking in a new clutch, but I can't wait to hear it at WOT. While driving at highway speeds there is no drone, and it's easy to hold a conversation at normal levels.

I am thrilled to see that you will now be offering HF Cats and pipes that will match up to Kooks LR Headers. That will be my next significant improvement, and I'm glad that I'll be able to use them with this exhaust!

Vids please, if possible. I've been wrestling endlessly with what to do for exhaust for mine.

I'm leaning towards Mach Unbalanced. I already have the Solo cats.

Sorry, I should have specified that it's the Mach Balanced system.

Awesome news; Wait until they carbon up for a few hundred miles or so, it'll sound even better!

And yes, the Kooks LT's and SOLO connection pipes are a good upgrade when the time comes, trust me!

Since I bought mine used from someone who had about 4000 miles on their G8, I think the carbon process was already started for me. I just know that I like it so far. I have a few concerns about the sound once I go with LTs and hi-flo cats, but we shall see!

Loving my new Solo Axle Backs... thanks to Jack @ Zoro Muffler in Mississauga. I was in and out in 15 minutes and could not be happier with the service and especially the sound.
