Default Exhaust, New Paint Vids!

I got a new camera so I decided to take some pictures/videos of my new exhaust setup. The car is still NA. The exhaust is 2.5", no cat, dynomax bullet (straight through) muffler/resonator, and a dynomax turbo muffler.

Here is what it sounded/looked like a few months ago:

And just because I like to take pictures of things...

The paint isn't done, we need to wet sand and reclear...then I may repaint the entire car when I get a new front bumper and the finish panel later around christmas. The Color is 50th Anniversary Corvette Burgundy.

EDIT: I like this video better

Nice, thats sounds lika a huge improvement over what you were running.

Sounds quieter than I thought it would be.

How much did that setup cost you? If you don't mind me asking?

I picked up the first one used for 120 including the straight pipe...then paid 70? 50 for the muffler shipped to my door and then 20 bucks from a shop to put it in.

so...right under 200 bucks for a downpipe back 2.5" exhaust. I really like the way adding the other muffler made it sound, it is still a bit raspy between 3-4k RPMs but its a lot quieter. If I ever get to actually turbo it, it ought to be real quiet.

lol, you guys are awesome. I think I've had like 5 guys saying don't sell the turbo stuff.

Any idea on how much quieter it'll get if I can?
