    The recycle guy likes my car.

    Every month I take my empties to the recycle center down the street.

    Today, the guy tells me his partner told him he saw me doing some "spirited" driving coming out of the Taco Bell.

    A little lead footed, but no burn out (that I remember).

    He even came out of the facility to take some pics of the motor.

    I revved it real good as I left.

    Good for the ego.

    That's what I like about this car. It's still a head turner. Not just another Vette, or Camaro, or Mustang. I got comments from the guys that recently did my state inspection. Then on another occasion I had lost my way and was making a U-turn in a business park and a guy gave me a rotating arm motion, signalling he wanted to see me get on it. I was happy to oblige him.

    The other day I walked by my mailman on the way to the V, I said hi and kept walking. When I started it up (with open cutouts) I saw him jump a lil bit then turn and check out the V. I always let my cars warm up for a min so he came over and asked about it. He was shocked to see a 6speed in a caddy then lost it when I popped the hood. He also thought it was a almost brand new car. It made my day

    Working class guys LOVE this car. The guys at the golf club, however, just think it's got a hell of an exhaust leak.

    Re: The recycle guy likes my car.

    At a stoplight yesterday the guy in the old van next to me was trying to talk to me through my closed passenger window. As the light was turning green, I put the window down and caught the end of his comment, something along the lines of, "That's some nice noise you're making over there." I laughed, and then goosed it across the intersection to let him really hear it.

    If I wasn't due for smog check soon, I would be tempted to yank the cats and install the bypass.

    B&B full on exhaust with an "X" pipe.

    Rattles windows. WHOO HOO!

    Yeah, I don't recall all the times I've left rubber in the road, either.

    I am a relatively recent new owner of an 07 black on black all stock. Was sitting at a light the other day and after a lot of staring got my first thumbs up from two guys in a chevy pickup with a lift kit. That was sort of cool.

    Did you order the pipes that your cutouts are mounted to or did you have an exhaust shop install them? I've currently got DMH's on my '96 SS but since that cars not on the road at the moment I'm thinking of moving them over to the V if i can get the pipes easily.

    I just had my local muffler shop weld them in right behind some magnaflow mufflers. It sounds great, I've been driving with them open for a couple months and except for a lil drone I like it.

    Here's a short video. http://youtu.be/duqCRBnEF44

    Interesting. I'd never think of putting the cut-outs behind the mufflers. That seems to defeat the purpose. I installed mine on the SS pre-muffler, right under my feet.
