straight pipes???

ok the goat has a borla exhaust, it also has the LS1.... how ever it sounds kinda stock... not as loud as i would like it... i thought about cutting out the muffs and putting in straight pipes... how do you guys think it would sound? or should i replace it with so resonators

I've heard of people doing both, but with the stock exhaust. There was a member here awhile ago that cut out his mufflers and left the resonators and was very pleased with the sound, but like I said, it was a stock exhaust.

You might be talking about me. This was the best sounding vehicle I've ever had (even better than the vette.)





Not sure of the sound diff between the LS1 and LS2 (exhaust routes, etc.)

G'luck anyhow.

any sound clips?

I had a friend that just replaced his BMW 540 mufflers with 2 pipes and it sounded like a Ferrari.
