cmntmxr57 In due time, but I have other things on my plate first.

My issue in 4 cylinder mode isn't so much a drone. It sounds more like a bad wheel bearing or something out of round, to be honest and it sounded like that stock exhaust or not.

With the axle-backs when you breath on the throttle, you get a surging like sound in the exhaust note, then back to normal.
05-16-2019 01:51 PM
Kensington Yeah, disable DOD, problem solved, seems like all the drone issues are more associated when running on 4 cylinder mode.

ilikemtb999 Here’s the stock caprice exhaust

I’m waiting for my base tune from black bear. Was putting it off because I’ve been waiting for this guy to get a 3.45 gear car in and they’ve all been 3.27 cars. Basically once I get the tune I’ll email and ask for an update for new gears so I don’t have to wait forever.
05-16-2019 01:45 PM
cmntmxr57 Everything in there helps, but the core of the NVH quelling comes from the monster mufflers.



I removed those for those Solo Axlebacks, and listening to the DOD go off every time you breath on the throttle is annoying as fuck now.

cmntmxr57 The Caprice has more mufflers/resonators than even the G8...

Is that also from a Camaro?
05-16-2019 01:24 PM
Kensington Did you disable DOD?
05-16-2019 01:15 PM
ilikemtb999 Stock has sooooo many mufflers. I think 7 total? And it’s 2.25 and necks down to 1 -7/8” between two sets of mufflers. This is 2.5” the whole way.
05-16-2019 01:12 PM
Gav'sPurpleZ nice !
05-16-2019 01:05 PM
ilikemtb999 See how much I need to extend this I guess

05-02-2019 04:35 PM
ilikemtb999 Will get these mounted hopefully next week. In the middle of replacing my rear wheel bearings and it’s being a bitch. I obtained a set of knuckles but destroyed the backing plate attempting removal of the hub and bearing so just going to order a new set of backing plates. Then an alignment and THEN tires.

They’re General g-max rs’s in stock size. Should be good enough for the nice months.

ilikemtb999 I will be running all of those meows pictured. We have actual emissions here, I'm exempt for a few years still but I’m not looking to pollute the earth more than I have to.
05-02-2019 02:03 PM
Kensington Nice!

You going to ditch the pre/post cats or just leave it as is?
05-02-2019 02:00 PM
ilikemtb999 And the stock shit

05-02-2019 01:16 PM
ilikemtb999 Picked these up for pennies from a ‘13 zl1. Not long tubes but should be a decent improvement. The manifolds are the same design but are cast stainless (supposedly) and it ditches the bottle neck of the stock flex pieces

04-18-2019 04:49 PM
ilikemtb999 I do the same thing with all filters and fluids. I save a LOT of money.
