Totally Exhausted V6

When I test drove my first V6 Camaro...I was totally disappointed at how quiet it was. I had previously test driven several V8's with a GMPP exhaust already installed...so I was shocked at the difference. So I knew there was one thing that had to be changed immediately when I bought my SGM last year.

When I told my salesman that I wanted some sound I was offered a choice between the Magnaflow and Flowmaster Axle-Back exhaust. I chose the Flowmaster because it is known to produce a deeper sound. Once it was installed I was still not satisfied so headers and/or electrical cut-outs were suggested and I decided to go with both. JBA Short Headers were chosen to avoid the CEL issue and Race Ready Performance Electrical Cut-Outs.

I could not be happier with the results. Envy has a nice rumble from the JBA's and Flowmaster all the time. Then when I want to have a little fun...I can open up the electrical cut-outs and really make some noise...lol.

I've included pictures of the system (headers not visible), a close-up of the cut-outs underneath and the cut-out switch installed in the console.

V6 with Headers and Cut-Outs

And here's a couple of videos to hear the sound. The 1st one starts out with just the JBA and Flowmaster then the cut-outs are opened up at 0:45 and then closed again at 1:25. Not too shabby!

And the 2nd video is a 3 lap ride along at the Texas Motor Speedway with Envy at full throttle and the cut-outs open (and the windows are up...lol) I think she sounds awesome!

Sounds pretty mean for a 6!!

Good thing you got cutouts though. If I had to drive that around all the time with the open exhaust, my head would hurt!

Thanks El! There's no way I would want my car that loud all the time. And believe it or not, if I turn up my stereo, I can't hear a thing. But when I do open my cut-outs...Envy is the only music I want to listen to.

Agree with you envy. My ride has the exact same setup, except my headers are Doug Thorleys. I could not be more happier with my exhaust. Great minds think a like. LOL
