A friend of mine was asked if he wanted his car to be a test mule for Pypes new axle back system for the G8 GT, so he jumped right on it!

Sounds very good. Let me tell you, these cars are TOO quiet. Considering there is 360hp cooking under the hood, it sounds like my old Maxx did at idle.

So anyway, here are some pics and clips

I left work a bit early today and shot down to Pypes to get their new axle-back exhaust installed on the G8. The install took roughly 10 minutes which when you look at what's being done....it shouldn't surprise anyone.

The guys at Pypes were extremely friendly and even helped me get the old mufflers in the trunk with a fresh piece of cardboard so I wouldn't dirty anything up.

On first start-up, the exhaust has a really nice and deep rumble. Off idle and accelerating the sound get more and more pronounced but is never high pitched. The entire axle-back is stainless with a real nice rolled oval tip that fits perfectly and really makes the back end of the car look nice. I liked the stock dual tips but these tips really look great.

Below are a couple pics and I stole Pypes videos from youtube on the prototype setup which is exactly the same as this one. Surprisingly both cars are orange.

I can't wait to get the rest of the exhaust done and hopefully Pypes will continue to put out more products for the G8.

Anything to make the original sound better. It is nice to have a V8 but the GTs seem to lack the deep throaty sound.
