This Solo Exhaust kit is classed as an “American Muscle” performance exhaust kit. This exhaust kit is for the enthusiasts that like a louder car. It has more sound than the G8 Mach-Shorty-Balanced and is definitely more aggressive both under load and while cruising.
When one hears this exhaust kit on a drive by, it’s hard to believe that it is as quiet as it is on the inside. It uses Solo’s 11” Mach muffler, J-pipes, mandrel bent exhaust pipes and staggered dual exhaust tips. This kit is polished and stainless steel both inside and out.
1-10 scale… 1 being stock quiet and 10 being rockin’ noisy
Overall note outside cabin is a 7.
Overall inside cabin exhaust note 4.5
The G8 Mach-Shorty exhaust kit has a meaner sound compared to the G8 Mach-Shorty-Balanced. While the G8 Mach-Shorty has a moderate or mid range + exhaust note outside the cabin the G8 Mach-Shorty exhaust kit has that true ‘American Muscle” sound and is classed as mid range ++. The exhaust note throughout the spectrum never even hints at raspy or ricey. Deep, full, smooth and mean would characterize the exhaust note outside the cabin while it remains tasteful on the inside.
8cyl to 4cyl jump…smooth transition.
4cyl to 8cyl jump…sharper octave change, definitely more pronounced than either the Mach or the Mach-Balanced exhaust kit.
Going up hills… You can hear the extra “pull” when going up hills but it never gets to a drone or hum.
