    I've got a B&B on my 911 and it is very loud. I can't imagine that, unless it is a totally different animal, it would be any different for an STS-V.

    Re: New Exhaust Install

    Well I will say that it is too loud for me anyway, B&B or Borla. I kinda think it is a Borla too, but I have never looked into it. I don't know anything about B&B except what you guys say. I wouldn't use any exhaust that was too loud on a Caddy anyway...and no one has shown us, to my knowledge, a before and after hp/tq increase from catback exhaust alone, which is really the only reason I would ever consider it in the 1st place.

    With my CTS-V on the dyno...I netted 0 HP with just a bolt on exhaust...I am planning bigger intake, ported heads and exhaust. Im not going the header route as they arent worth the gains they give vs. assache the become.

    Umm...what happened to......

    Theres not much to be done to the STS-V, and by doing so Id be going down the same road to rear diff. destruction. I may do a tune and exhaust, but thats IT, I promise.

    Same F or different F?

    Post up a vid with audio so we can hear what it sounds like. Is there any drone while cruising?

I am so pissed... there is no fixing it... I am sooooo pissed right now........there WAS adequate space between the two. exhaust is still tight in place..now my baby will never be the same... I am wayyyy to anal about my stuff.. have to think about what to do now. nothing is a good solution... not even a new rear bumper cover will even come close to making me happy on this one, as it will still have to be painted, and seriously there is not even ANY body shop in my area that is worth a shit ...

    That sucks! What was the update on this, did the dealership fix it? Can you post or email me some pics?
