advice on exhaust

I'm ready to upgrade the exhaust on Natasha and I'm really considering Flowmaster's American Thunder cat-back. Anyone have this system or recommend it? Any info good or bad is appreciated

Shawn Youtube is full of video's that consist of what you are speaking of. I know of one 2010 Camaro that I have heard in person that sounded good with the Traditional 40 series on it.

Imo if I were peicing together a exhaust and didnt want to use headers then I would get an X pipe and add two 40 series flowmasters.

Flowmaster may even have a Catback system with an xpipe and two 40 series. I think the video below is the system they have for the New Camaro.
Hmmmmmmmmmmm throw in some headers with this video and she will growl at ya lol

Give them a call and tell them what you want.

btw keep in mind of the Crap sound the L99 with give with the cylinder deactivation ( thats if you have a L99 automatic ) otherwise have fun.

I do have the automatic...is the sound you're talking about kind of like a small backfire at start up?

Keep in mind the 40 series will give you a good bit of interior drone. I feel like my ears are bleeding after sitting at 1900 rpms for while.

1997 BMW 540i 6-speed
1996 BMW 318i Convertible (slow)
1985 BMW 325e 5-speed turbo (blown up, in the process of a motor swap)
1999 Oldsmobile Bravada (parted)

I still really dig the GMPP axle back, but there are more aggerssive exhaust systems out there, on the M6 the only drone is at low rmps in 6th. Here is mine on the dyno, wheel spin makes alot of noise on that thing and sometimes the vid is quirky: http://www.cheers*****.com/Dyno.html

Sorry bout that, it plays fine on my comp at home, and makes me press play multiple times here at work. I wish I knew more about designing web sites and vid xfer rates, but hell I can barely spell things right half of the time.
