Well since Whisler posted his i had to post mine. Please excuse the highway noise, guess my camera was doing the auto level on the audio or something because it didnt sound that loud in person! It's a closed road and i didnt really do anything stupid. Headers should be here Monday the 9th, just wanted to have something to compare against. That xpipe makes the car sound better than i thought it would with the cutouts closed. Let me know what ya'll think

Mine are in the back and you can see both! I think it looks cool. I have no cats so it just SW headers. My neighboors have asked me to keep them closed in the morning when I leave! LOL

Well im sure several of you guys have louder exhaust. I do not have headers yet.... Coming Monday! YAY! It is nice to be able to shut it off for the ladies and long trips though. TXSilverV's is significantly louder. He has inspired me to get a cam and some headers. No new heads for me though, too pricey.. But his sure is bad ass!

Got the car Dyno'd today... Ill save it for a new thread but i think we may have shed some light on the Raven vs Platinum and LS6 vs LS2 grudge... You may be surprised.....

I tried the Q-Tecs on another car a while back and they stripped out over time. The linear actuator seems to hold much better and supposedly pushes/holds with like 125lbs of force. I didnt make them though, they are from www.StreetPro.us Love them so far!:thumbsup:

Better do it before he gets the headers...:thumbsup:

If he is right about the LS2 vs the LS6 you may want to consider a Maggie, Never hurts to have a little extra so you can play with him a little.

I am not a believer but one will see after I do a couple of pulls after the mod's.

I have a hard time believing that the LS2's are only putting out about 315 at the rear, this would mean about 390 rwhp - Not believing this. Could be I'm in denial but we will see after the pull.

Does this set-up pass state emissions inspection?

It did pass and it's sort of funny. I forgot that I did not have cats when I was there for the inspection. The guy put the cord in the exhaust and that was the very second I remembered and I got really nervous. I walked up to the machine and it said pass. I laughed out loud and he asked me what was funny. I had to make something up so I told him I was worried about my window tint but it was fine.

Great, I'll get my windows tinted and add some headers.

So to finally complete the cutout install, after 5-6 months... I need to mount the switch but the switch they came with look like crap. Anyone know where i can get a better looking switch? I dont even know what this type of switch is called.. Dual Pole Momentary Toggle switch? OPen/Close switch? I like the look of the switches that come with some nos bottle openers... I would think it'd be the same kind of switch. Any assistance would be appreciated!
