I don't know but should sound even better when I get the headers. The headers and a tune will be the last performance mods I do at least till warranty is up.

Like mine except way raspier and louder.

The LoudMouth is basically just two tiny resonaters for "mufflers". I still have my stock headers and cats in so when I get my LT's and catless mids it's going to be waaaaaayyyyyyyy louder than it is now.

Small exterior mods. I painted the rear bumper defuser and did some vinyl graphics.

Yeah they're slow sellers. There was an Torrid Red '05 M6 at Crystal Lake Pontiac for about 2 months. It finally disappeared about a month or so ago.

Slow sellers there maybe but I went to 4 dealers to look at 4 cars the day I bought this and this one and a 2004 was all that was left. GTO's are really common in Vegas I see another one like everyday.

Nice job lautin.

I don't see any of 'em around here..maybe two in my town that i've seen in my life. Just as many old school goats as new ones here.

But i saw many when i was in Denver this week (had to get away for a bit, hence more of mega and less of me ). I also saw the first Ferrari i've seen in person in my life. 599GTB.

Damn... the 6.0

You have raised the bar quite nicely, against the 5.7 I stood a chance, but the 6.0, even with my boost leaks fixed and running a 2 step box I'd still be playing catch up the entire quarter mile LOL
