    I had never seen one this color before. I had always thought the first gen V's pretty much came in Black or Black.

    Great. I really like the sound of the V1's with SW exhaust on YouTube, but cabin noise videos are limited. Would be interested to see how loud cabin noise is with headers, hi flow cats, and exhaust.

    Jason, can you do mandrel bend on 3" pipe? I would like to run 3" no mufflers from the x pipe out the back, over the rear axle on my C5 ZO6 track car.

    Yessir. We make systems for these cars but I'm not 100% we can make a change that would allow it to just be straight through without getting your car in here.

    This V got our exhaust only. We will have a video for you shortly!

    I got the headers, high flow cats, resonator, and of course mufflers. It growls! The idle at the front is intimidating and the exhaust is tame. Driving around as a daily driver...perfect! No drone and you can hear the growl when you give it a little gas. This exhaust is kinda the dividing line where you choose the caddy to be a sports car - hear me roar and idle like give me respect!

    Yeah I have video:

    This was right after the install and I had the hood open. I'm going to take another video at the end of the month when it gets some dyno time.

    Sounds great! I remember this video, both due to your dog being unsure of a the new sound and how awesome your car looked on race ramps. I was looking into the Rhino Ramps, that I can snag at Advance Auto for $40 a pair after coupon code, but your rears look like blocks, rather than ramps and based on the brand name you have a much more elaborate setup than cheap Rhino Ramps :-)

    Are there many running around up there?

    I was hunting for a 1st Gen V or a GTO a couple years ago and stumbled on the perfect Goat first. So that's what I ended up with.

    I love the race ramps! No regrets with the price - you get what you pay for! I think this exhaust compliments the V1 really well. It doesn't break the bank and the sound is a good compromise - growls when you get on it and quiet at idle. I had some passengers on a long trip that fell asleep in the back seat - the hum of the exhaust rocked them to sleep like a baby. The cabin is very quiet at cruising speeds.
