So I've been looking for a little more sound out of my exhaust, I don't really have the spare coin to spend on Solos, so I found these stainless straight pipes on the bay. These are the results...
I was actually very surprised when I heard the first cold start, it really has some [email protected] to it. I was originally looking at Solo's GT axle backs specifically for the J pipes, even though they're not targeted to the V6 drone, but Steve from Solo said they wouldn't fit. The other ones I looked at were from VE Online, but don't ship to the U.S.I actually don't think it sounds half bad for a 6'er. Instead of saving for an entire solo axleback, just order their J-pipes and take them to a local exhaust shop you trust to weld them to the muffler delete pipes you already purchased.
Yea it seems to be pretty difficult to find a good one, especially with this motor. All the best ones I've heard come from Australia and I'm not donating a kidney for exhaust money... Thanks for the kudos!:thumbsup:Personally never been happy with the sound of any exhaust on any V6 with the exception of some of the old Buick 3.8L's.
Face it those extra two cylinders make all the difference if your looking for "that" rumble, so my V6 is still stock exhaust.
Kudo's to those who try something new.
Haha! That's what I was trying to avoid, I want this lion to eat rice! Spare change is always welcome, is it actually possible to build a muffler around the pipe?It sounds like a Honda Civic going through puberty.
I'd try adding a set of mufflers to try and lower the frequency a bit. Just my .02
That's my ultimate goal, just a bit bigger than a 5.3 though...Don't spend any money on exhaust. Spend money on a junkyard 5.3 and a eBay turbo.
And a flux capacitor! I would start with a 6.0 or 6.2 and build from there. Unless I hit the lottery it won't happen anytime soon.6.8 and 2 turbos?
Nope, the mid muff and resonators are gone and replaced with an X. And yes, the pipes really are great quality, I'm definitely going to hang on to them and see what can be done.As a V6 owner,Curious did you keep the resonator or did you eliminate them?I picked up the same stainless steel pipe from ebay they are GREAT QUALITY 304 STAINLESS STEEL,my stetup is STAINLESS X-PIPE INTO STAINLESS MID-PIPES INTO RESONATORS THEN OUT TO STRAIGHT PIPE.I'm pleased with this setup had to go the less expensive route.
