I know,.......... turned up is a relative term. This means from 6 to 7 (Boost T)),....I'm tuned for 8.

Custom work

So we pulled trigger on a custom section of piping to replace the muffler on this. Shes too quiet,...LOL. The great thing about Solo s stuff is its truly modular. So I keep the muffler, in case I have to take a trip through some gay-ass states that will ticket loud cars. LOL

**The turbo itself acts like a muffler when shes not in boost. So I will be straight pipes with Solos built in resonators upstream. I'm stoked.

Preparations for "obnoxious" sounds to match her 345 width 12.5 wide rear wheels,...then I'll turn up the boost-FINALLY.

Gaijinn Here she is after the turbo,...rumble rumble mellowed out for sure. I'll have to try and get a clip under boost but that would require a much better camera.

Pops have nothing to do with the exhaust itself, rather, CATS or no CATS, fueling, tune and the like. ( Mine come from methanol,LOL).

Here is BOOM-BOOM pow.

JG_Bk2 I might be a little late, but I also have a few clips of my exhaust put together on a youtube video. I have a 3.8 genesis coupe with Solo CBE and Ark Test pipes. My girlfriend and I had a few issues when finding an exhaust because we wanted no drone, pops, loud in the outside but not in the inside since we always go on road trips and have passengers. After researching all the exhaust, the Solo Performance matched the most. You can come check out the video if you like I just created this account so I wont be able to post a link, but just go on youtube and search up "Solo Performance CBE Genesis Coupe 3.8" it's the one uploaded by "jasonxnikki" or you can just look at my instagram @ JG_Bk2 and it'll be there.

titan2782 nice clearance. Wish I had more clearance with my GRiP, but I wouldn't trade it for anything else.

Chong0922 Just got the kit put on over the weekend. Drove up to the shop and I just can't say enough how thrilled I am to have chosen this exhaust. The guys at mufflerman were awesome to say the least. Attention to detail like it was one of their own cars. The sound is perfect and hit the gas, she roars. Fitment was perfect on my 15' Coupe R-Spec.

shaqzillagc I got this exhaust last week, looks and sounds great, guys @ zoro muffler in Mississauga did the install, they are great at what they do. The owner said he has solo high flow cats for my 3.8 which I will probably install next week

creditman Thanks for the info Renfrick1, I will do that once I'm ready. I appreciate the feedback.

Renfrick1 Yeah call Steve at solo and he will hook you up with free shipping

creditman Hey Dumer,

Thanks for the info on the Solo CBE, do they have them available in California, or can they be ordered & shipped out?
Thanks Creditman

Renfrick1 Yeah I don't think you can go wrong with a solo exhaust. I'll be heading out to them in buffalo in the spring to get it put on my car. I know Jeff ,he's a great guy with fantastic customer service.i was excited to see them on this site as sponsors. It's funny because there are a lot of vendors that are cross forum vendors. If we could get someone like billet tech to do some nice billet pieces for the engine compartment life would be good.

Dumer Didnt weight it but I do know the stock muffler weighs a ton and the Solo muffler section felt much lighter lol.

My car is stock except for the catback. Cats are in place and not modified in anyway. Im hoping Solo might be interested in making some test pipes or using their 200 cell HF cats for a future mod.

CataCop3.8GT Right one more question. In the video what is the status of your secondary cats? In place, straight through pipe or cats in place but gutted?

CataCop3.8GT Thanks for the video Dumer. Certainly got a better idea of what it sounds like solo lol. The design of the solo exhaust looks less bulky compared to the magnaflow or borla. I've heard that some aftermarket exhausts weigh more than stock and it almost defeats the point making the car heavier just for sound and gains when the weight cancels the gain out. Not completely of course. Anyways any thoughts on the size of it compared to others on the market?

Dumer I actually found an in-car I did a few months ago. Its hardly the best quality but its not bad. Drive by might be hard with a foot of snow on the ground lol. Honestly with this exhaust being similar in design to the Magna and Borla, Id expect the same gains. Most of the 3.8 exhausts all get around the same gains regardless of brand. Click the pic for it to play.

Jeff said that they might be interested in making a muffler-less version in the spring. Fit is spot-on. Jeff was there and wouldnt let me leave till is was perfect. The advantage of being local, is that they do free installs and adjustments at their shops. Im very happy with it.

As I mentioned, there are a few reviews out and none of them are negative in any way. I even have a Solo on my Veloster Turbo.

Renfrick1 They have a few different ones for the challenger. The one I have has no mufflers. It's just straight pipes with an X pipe where the muffler would be. But yes it has j pipes for no drone. It sounds bad ass. Absolutely the best sounding exhaust I have ever heard on a challenger. I've had 5 different brands on my car and have heard the other 10 in person and the solo is by far the best one. There fit and finish is spot on. The last thing anyone wants is installing something that doesn't fit right. How did yours fit?
