Re: Gibson Exhaust ORDERED

Thanks dude! One note, I noticed every mirror is turned away from seeing you, are you in some type of witness protection program?

I was about to say I don't hear anything except your Volant but you mentioned that around the 8:00 mark. How about mounting the GoPro on the lift gate and get some outside video? Thanks again for the video :thumbup:

Re: Gibson Exhaust ORDERED

Sounds great....getting my gibson put on the V6 today.
I'm not having high hopes but I used gibson before and trust how they tune the exhaust note of their mufflers. As long as there is no drone I'll be ok with it.

Re: Gibson Exhaust ORDERED

Here is the update for the exterior sound... No time for fancy intros/credits, just raw footage.

I didn't get a chance earlier this week to film, I have been driving my Toyota Land Cruiser these past FEW days. However I needed to bring my WK2 from our new property to our secondary location so please enjoy the sparkly new Lexus' in the movie. haha


Enjoy!

Re: Gibson Exhaust ORDERED

Very nice, jfrey. Thanks for the audio clip. I like the sound a lot. Authoritative without being disruptive.

Re: Gibson Exhaust ORDERED

Thanks for the outside clip!

Now...is it me, or is this system really, really quiet in the video?

I think it's perfect. Didn't sound too aggressive but it has a better tone. I bet at WOT its a lot meaner. It's almost as if the volume on the stock exhaust has been amplified. Thanks for posting the video!

Exactly! I could not have said it better myself.

It takes the stock exhaust note and raises it just a tad. However, put the throttle down and combined with the Volant, it makes it sound like a bulldozer is coming and taking everything in sight. haha
