The original mufflers were leaking so I had a shop cut them off and welded two pipes from the Y-splitter and some stainless steel tips. I didn't remove or gut the catalytic converter, it is loud but not loud enough to be annoying while cruising on the highway. Maybe it picked up a couple extra hp too? I can't tell.

Sounds pretty nice. Would you be able to get us some video clips of:

In car, idling, windows down and up
Driving at 35-45mph windows down (cruising on a back road), and 75mph windows up (interstate)
And a in car WOT run :)

Silence is golden. Smooth & quiet is the Cadillac standard protocol for it's gigantic hi-po-lux-o-crusiers.

For sure, for the past 7 years of me owning the car the quietness is almost scary, I'm just bored of it... and kind of annoyed by the fact that people keep walking in front of my car in the parking lot because they couldn't hear me behind them. Also kids with their headphones are like bats with a broken sonar, a bit of BRAWWW BRAWWWWnNNNNN will give them a reason to look around before crossing the roads. I had a young girl who rode her bicycle into the side of my car because she thought I wasn't moving when I was going like 20mph, good thing she was okay and she only put a surface smudge on the passenger fender.

I can get more vids if this thread gets more attention. Come on in!

That sounds cool - maybe you should adjust the sensor on the ELC to jack up the rear end a little

How do I do that? I know the control thingy is behind the rear wheel well somewhere but I haven't bothered to look for it.

So after a month of having the exhaust done I've concluded that I should have done this a long time ago, I really like it a lot.
