Welcome! I noticed that the tips are not stock, what kind of exhaust is on the car now? They look like Magnaflow if I had to make a guess. A lot of people love the sound of Kooks headers and Magnaflow together.

Try using the image tags in the future they make it easier to look at pictures.

I do too. Although I would substitute "great clutch" for my term of endearment, "piece of #@*(#Uing @*@% clutch". :) Glad you are happy with it though, maybe myself and all of the others just can't drive!

B&B FTW!! I just had B&B headers installed w/ catless front pipes and B&B "touring" style exhaust - the power gain was impressive and the sound is truly intoxicating. If you want to check it out, I posted pics and a sound bite at http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/2004-2007-cadillac-cts-v-performance/223656-b-b-headers-exhaust-wait4me-dyno.html . (Although the soundclip is kinda worthless if you don't have external speakers hooked up to your computer.)

Beautiful V, by the way. Love the wheels! (I don't recognize them - what are they?)

And welcome!!

What's all wrong with it?

I'm more or less interested in the muffler-back portion, but prefer the whole thing....even if it needs some work

so i just checked out youre b&b exhaust thread and vid. clip and i must say that sounds amazing so im taking my car in next week for the parts :)
how much did that run you the way im adding it up its around 3k wish it was a bit cheaper but i need cats due to it being a $5k fine if a cop see u dont have them :/
i love the fact that this exhaust keeps the popping to a minimal nothing better then a smooth bass sound imo.

The parts were $500 cheaper from Wait4me than directly from B&B, and as you noted, I chose the catless front pipes. Therein lies the difference!

Great Detail Job in your pics.
