Hi,

I live in Austria (Europe) and i am a proud owner of a brand new 2012 Escalade Platinum 6.2.

But i need definitly a better sound and a little better performance.

I would like to add a exhaust System, a CAI and maybe also a tune (like a diablo predator) to my escalade.

What exhaust is avaible for my Escalade and which would you recommend ?
I would like to get the loudest, deepest sound as possible, i donīt need a "touring" version.

Any recommandations here ?

Thanks a lot for the input !

Take care
Thomas

Hi,

Thanks for reply !

Is billy boat relly the only one ? BTW: It seems that the BB exhaust only fits 07 models - not shure if it works with the 12 model ...

Isnīt there any other supplier for a good exhaust ? Whatīs with the CAI ?

Thanks,
Take care
Thomas

B&B makes a system for 2011 & 2012, although it does not install like the 2007-2010 where no cutting was required, you have to cut your exhaust with a 2011 & 2012 Escalade because even though B&B charges top dollar they are too cheap to make the exhaust like other manufacturers who offer a complete bolt-on system, but their exhaust sounds the best by far.

Hi,

Thanks !

But i really would like to get a bolt on system with no cutting - if possible.
From the Video i like the sound of the Corsa:

But the website says that it is for a 2011 model - does anyone know if this is a bolt-on-kit and if it will fit on a 2012 platinum ?

Thanks,
Take care

Good luck with your new ride! Be careful with the tune, I hear now GM can detect preditor but i'm not 100% sure. It would suck if you lost your warranty because they found out you tuned it. I hope I'm wrong and they cant detect it but be careful

Yes the Corsa system is 100% bolt-on, but does not sound nearly as good as the B&B, had several Corsa systems on my Escalade's with long tube headers
