    Hello From Billy Boat Performance Exhaust

    Hello, my name is Jon Light, and I am with Billy Boat Performance Exhaust. We just started as a Vendor Member with Cadillacforums, and are pleased to be here.

    Some of you (or perhaps all of you – who knows?) may be familiar with Billy Boat Performance Exhaust. We are 23 year old exhaust manufacturing company and produce premium exhaust systems for a variety of makes and models, and with strong focus on the LS V8.

    We have developed complete exhaust systems for the CTS-V including headers, high-flow catalytic converter pipes, center resonators, and cat-back exhaust systems. Our CTS-V exhaust systems have been proven to produce an additional 412 rear wheel horsepower. Just kidding – I wanted to see who was paying attention. Actually, with a combination of our headers, cat pipes and Sport Exhaust our in-house dyno results showed an increase of 45 rear wheel horsepower, and 46 lbs.-ft. of torque. Which is still pretty cool. Plus the Sport Exhaust uses our Purge Resonance Technology (PRT) which eliminates drone. So the system adds good power, has a great muscle car sound, yet is easy on the ears at cruise. More info and hear exhaust sound clips at http://www.bbexhaust.com/car/vseries/

    Something else I wanted to share as it does a good job of summing up what Billy Boat Exhaust is all about: Earlier this week I was putting together an interview with our company owner Billy Boat for another website (FYI: Billy raced most of his life – was a USAC Champion during the nineties and raced Indy Cars for AJ Foyt in the late 90’s) and I asked him what his philosophy was for Billy Boat Performance Exhaust. He said: “I think most of the philosophy for the exhaust company came from my background in racing. Racing is very precise, low tolerance for error - very performance focused. Nothing less is accepted. So we build parts the same way as we would build them if were putting them on the track. We make the highest quality parts, and use the highest quality materials, and we make sure they perform.” FYI: Billy builds all of our products in-house at our Phoenix, AZ facility and is the company’s production manager – so he is all over it.

    So there you have it.

    I plan to regularly communicate on Cadillacforums – so if you have any questions about CTS-V exhaust (or XLR or Escalade for that matter – we do those too) please let me know.

    I am waiting for B&B to reply to my email and requests.

    Having had both the "1st generation" CTS-V exhaust and the subsequent reiteration, I am very happy with the performance.

    I just wish Calif was.

    I own Kooks headers and a Magnaflow 16637 (2.5" with X-Pipe), but I've got the B&B X-Pipe on bucket list for later when I start pushing 700+ RWHP. How do your headers differ from the 1-7/8" Kooks and how have you seen catalytic converters affect the performance of your catbacks?

    Re: Hello From Billy Boat Performance Exhaust

    I have a complete B&B headers and exhaust setup sitting in my garage that I've scrounged up from the forums here over time but have yet to have the time to install myself, or the $ to pay someone else to do it. Is there anything you can do to help with that?

    B&B is the absolute BEST sounding exhaust made for the V's.

    I agree it's the best and the collector design produces the most horsepower of any header I've seen tested. But saying there is no drone on the first generation CTS-V is far from reality. I've had it on with a stock LS2, heads & cam LS2, 418 LS3 and a 427 LSX and all have droned between 1600-2000 rpms (with and without the center resonator).

    Re: Hello From Billy Boat Performance Exhaust

    I have the cat back exhaust with x-pipe and have the B&B headers waiting to be installed. I heard that drone was an issue, and that B&B has a "fix" to this, any additional information?

    Re: Hello From Billy Boat Performance Exhaust

    Maybe there isn't with just the cat back system. They do have exhaust cones that can be welded into the exhaust tips that are supposed to help if not eliminate it all together. They sent me a set but I bought and installed cutouts before installing the cones. Slightly cracking the cutouts open eliminates the drone.

    There is a little drone. It's in the 1800rpm range and it is very easy to avoid. It was a complete non-issue for me...
