I am looking for someone close by to actually hear it. I will get my balls clipped off if I ever make a race exhaust sound on the family car. I had removed the cats, and got a borla catback for my GS, that shit lasted 3 days.

I know Prop has a female child and from what i can remember, a non-gearhead wife so if they can go cross country with him I can almost guarantee it won't drone in cabin.

Just a suggestion lol but I totally understand needing to hear in person. As long as its just resonator on the 4.8 you should be ok.

Absolutely.

It's very tame with easy cruising and normal accellerations because the gobs of torque propell these cars so effortlessly but get on it and woah! it's like an entirely different car

I'll work on getting a video!

The kit was from a pre-facelift so I can't use the front bumper. Trying to find one for the facelift. I have the part# and in contact with several vendors.
Worst case scenario, I'll get the Sarona bumper and do some custom work.
