lilgoat I would love to hear a sound clip of the street race with the solo cat. Just to get an idea of volume and change in sound. Did the sound change or just get louder?

I will do a clip after I get some more miles. It has changed, it got deeper and smoother. The sound changes everytime I drive it, getting quieter so I will wait until it stabilizes. I have about 200 miles on it. On the install it's not the install that is hard it is getting the old one off that was a pain. The new one is smaller and goes on pretty easy. The new cat is top notch and you can feel the extra power in the low end. As far as a dyno go drive it about 80 miles first. You will notice a big change for the better.

Good idea...I might wait a week or so for the dyno until the cat settles in. I still have to get a leaking shock fixed at the dealer.

and with the new cat and the street race you will be your name sake. I am very curious to hear your system. I have the tune and Lyndon leaned out the AFR so I hear a lot of noise on decel mostly, you may not have that problem. I LOVE the way it sounds when you "get in it" it's like a racing chain saw or something, it's sounds sooooo good and my car winds out so easy now. I keep hitting the rev limiter in 3rd gear, that would be about 90 mph and comes up really quick. I guess I notice the biggest change in 3rd, it is just way to much fun now.

Lyndon needs to up the RPM redline. I was just about hitting the rev limiter in 3rd about 95 on the dragway. Either way you will both have the same exhaust and cat and soon both of you will be Go-N Deaf.

He did up it a little, 6500 gets me to 60 in second, that's partly how I did the 4.43 0-60 time, no shift to third.. I think Def's will be much quieter than mine, I believe the decel noise is caused by my car running so much leaner than stock. I was out playing before work today it winds up quick. The CAT is good for some real low end torque.

I have the cat in now also and I love it! It sounds great and I can really feel the low end torque.

I went thru and tighten clamps again, found a loose one, the CAT is now sounding even better. It sounds just like a sports car should! MEAN, like the color!

SOLO Does GM's SEMA Stacked Exhaust!

The GM design center in Warren MI. contacted us to fabricate a stacked exhaust for their GXP that will be unveiled at this years SEMA show in Vegas.

All of us at Solo Performance jumped at the challenge and opportunity to make GM a customized stacked exhaust! We had to fabricated the exhaust to some unbelievably detailed, huge engineered drawings! They were incredibly nice people to work with. (They must be "SOL" owners.) We told them if they wanted their car to really "ROCK" they needed our GXP-CAT. When they found out that there would be no engine light issue they ordered one right away!

The unveiling is at SEMA but here's a sneak peak at the exhaust....
