Solo Performance strives to meet the needs of all G8 owners. We have developed a V6 axle-back kit that is direct bolt-on. We need to know how interested the G8 V6 community is in having us produce this kit. Kit comparison and details are as follows:



V6 G8 Stock system:



1) Stock system on rev... The stock system on the V6 G8 while revving sounds quiet and you can hear the motor. There is not much noise at all from the exhaust. The stock rev is not a good sound or a bad sound, just some motor noise.
2) Stock system while driving... When you are under load, you can hear the motor winding up and that’s all. Once cruising, it’s dead quiet and all you can hear is road noise.

Solo Performance V6 G8 Axle Back:


1) Rev...A very deep base tone that is a smooth and full exhaust note.
2) Driving...While under load the V6 G8 exhaust note has a nice “bite”....deep and aggressive with a muscle car flavor. The exhaust note never gets out of hand. It always seems to be in control. No drone throughout the RPM spectrum, and it has a soft melodious hum at cruise speeds.

It is extremely difficult to get the V6 G8 to have enough exhaust note to be satisfying to the customer, and not to drone. We labored long and hard to find what we think is the perfect balance point of a great exhaust note and a very acceptable tone in the inherent “trouble” ranges of the V6 G8. If it were any louder, the trouble ranges would be unacceptable, and any softer and the exhaust note would not have enough “bite” to it.

We are looking at a price under $500 shipped.

These guys are on fire. I haven't seen this much development for the G8 from one company besides Holden!

Fine work gentlemen, keep it coming!

The tone sounds great from the videos. Much better than the stock sound. To get a better response from possible buyers you might want to look into posting this is the V6 forum. Like the others have said great work.
