    Hey guys,

    Does anyone have this exhaust on their car? I'm considering getting it....price point is fantastic and the reviews on the headers have been fairly good.

    Any review will help.

    Thanks

    Had this on my 360, before I put a CS system on. Sounded good, had the high "F1" pitched wail. Very light system, think it tipped the scale just over 20 lbs. tip to tip. There are no valves so the system was loud...too loud for my wife! The system was highly polished and even though it was stainless steel, it stained pretty bad while I had it. I tried everything to clean it up but nothing worked. Overall construction was pretty good, welds were clean and I didn't have to do anything to mount the system. These are pics I took when I sold it, after a couple months of being on the car.

    When I Google exhausts for my 360 I always see a Top Speed titanium version. Anyone tried that? It's cheap and seems like it would be a good way to drop some LBs.

    My 360 was louder with the Titanium topspeed vs straight piped from the cats with no muffler.

    two things to keep in mind when shopping for exhaust, Pitch and volume.

    The top end sounds great, nice pitch/tone.

    However, low end, sub 4000 rpm, wayyyy to much volume/drone and boomy tone/pitch.

    This is my vid with the topspeed

    Sounds pretty good. Looks not as good though. lol

    Wonder if its worth welding exhaust valves into it.

    Anything is possible but where would you put valves in? There really is no practical place to add valves since it is a essentially a single in and single out on each side. As far as sound goes, this system is louder than my CS at idle with the valves open.

    Keep this in mind as well....you tagged this for a 430, so I assume you are working on/have a 430. Even though these cars are very similar, there are some key differences related to you post. Mine is a 99 with stock headers which means no pre-cats (louder). Brookliner7 has a similar setup to mine as shown in the video...stock headers w/no precats. Both are 360's so we have the 5 valve heads which some say have a higher pitch than the later model 430 engine. I can't tell....spent too much time on the flightline and at the range.....

    So, even if you have headers with no precats, it's not gonna sound the same as a 360. Just keep that in mind. Just know that it's gonna be louder and keeping it clean will be a PITA, unless they have changed their manufacturing process.
