    Okay, here's the deal:

    I'm sure like most, you too are sick of the constant and chronic "what exhaust" or "what sounds best" or "(insert exhaust question here)"

    So, here's what I am thinking:
    explain exhaust theory and practicality (velocity, backpressure, flow, etc),
    discuss headers (short, long, TriY, etc),
    organize all sound clips into one post,
    have people with personal experience post up with their opinions on how the system worked



    Also, please post any and all pictures you have of setups for ideas of pipe routing, clearances, etc.



    Opinions/Input/Changes? Post them up.

    My exhaust consist of edelbrock shorty headers and flowmaster cat back system. Sounds great but I might be upgrading in the future to a Borla.

    keep the 5.3 and 5.7s info separate... and perhaps another sticky for intakes, tunes/tuners, etc

    How about a breakdown by CID and body style, exhaust style (duals, single, etc) and sound clips. I'd love to see everyone post what the mods that are done to the exhaust, like headers, cat removal, etc.

    Maybe list by manufacturer and everyone provide a blurb on their exhaust so people can look at it and then listen to see if it's what they want.

    My Corsa 14270 is coming, $675 out the door on Evilbay, NIB :)

    Start to type it up and I'll copy+paste it to the initial post. Then we'll have it renamed and stuck.

    Obviously we can't have EVERY catback made, but we'll try to line out systems per motors and with and without cats, with/without LTs, etc.

    Yeah we can organize them by motor, then add whatever mods are current.

    I think its a great idea. I have several clips from my previous setups to contribute, but it'll take a while to locate all of em.

    this sounds like a great idea... I am SICK of seeing stuff like that every damn time I log on. but the bad part is, N00B's will still post it up regardless... no matter what you sticky. :nono: so, I guess when that happens, you could just hit them back with a link to the sticky and ignore them LOL...
