Volume vs Performance (LS motor)
I know this is a mustang forum, but I'm hoping you all can help. I posted this thread over on a G8 board, but it isn't nearly as active as this place. Here is the general gist. Car is a 2008 G8 GT.
As of right now, my exhaust is stock with the exception of Solo ABs. The volume and tone is just about perfect for me. I came from a Mustang GT running a pro chamber OR mid-pipe and straight pipes on back. That was fine when I was 23 and didn't care about having a conversation without yelling while driving the car. Now that I'm 28, I'm not looking to draw that kind of attention and have my car echoing off of buildings and the like.
My questions is simple. I want to do LTs with either no cats or hi flo cats for the power, but I don't want this thing to be any louder than it is now. Is this possible? If it is, what would you suggest? I was thinking LTs, X or H pipe, weld in Magnaflow mufflers or resonators back to the Solo ABs with J-pipes. Anyone with any experience in creating a free flowing performance exhaust while not being the guy that all the neighbors and cops hate please chime in.
I usually don't go for complete systems as I've found the same gains and cheaper price tag in piecing together a system and having a shop do some mandrel bending, but I'm open to any suggestions.
Anyone here have any experience with these motors in general or what you think would work?
Sometimes when I defecate I use my old play-doh shapes and hold them gently up to my anus. I make poo shapes and present them to my friends and close family.
