Default Stainless Works Catback Retro Exhaust

I was wondering if anyone has any experience with either this product or products in general from Stainless works. And maybe an opinion on the sound. I just found a vid for their Restro system for the 3.7 and I must say I think I may have found a sound I like.

I like it too, but no numbers are posted for it than sound levels. It's also twice as much as other catbacks except for Borla which has a huge reputation.

Yeah borla seems to be great as a company and for service and reputation. But I don't like the sound of any of their offerings for this car. Like all other aftermaket exhaut brands I personally find the sound worse than stock. But that's me. I also don't expect my car to sound like a v8 but I don't wanna be confused with a riced 4banger either. I want that v6ish sound. Heck call me crazy but I find or engines sound like "half a v12" and it's a trait id like to conserve

As you requested, we happen to have some DB's for the V6 exhaust!

Nice sound and a nice looking system. How's the noise level inside the car?

Inside the car isn't so bad, if you look at that chart, its only a few Db's higher than stock.

Yeah and also within legal sound levels so I wouldn't attract some unwanted attention.

Why do catbacks have to be so pricey though T_T.

Have you sold a lot of units? Are there more videos of the product forthcoming?

Yes we have sold a number of them, mostly due to the sound. Since we are using the chambered mufflers, it provides a deep aggressive sound that is unique to this motor because it will not sound "ricey" or like a small bass boat...haha

That sounds great, I may just get that on mine. One question, though, if I go to an authorized dealer, what is the average price for the installation?

Every dealer is different with pricing for install, it also depends on what other items they install at the same time.

My first choice, but I will have to find the best price. The margin looks pretty wide to me. I think the marketing and pricing guys need to work together and get the word out on this one at about 20% less than I'm seeing it.

Discretionary spending is under a microscope these days.

I couldn't agree more. Love the sound and it looks to be of high quality construction, but at quite a steep price.

I think the materials are great quality too, but chambered exhausts are known to lose power which is why you don't typically see them anymore. So if you're just looking for that 60s muscle car sound, that's great. For the price I would be asking for more than just acoustic improvements and loss of HP and torque lol.

Was not aware. Maybe a rep from SW could address this...

Yeah. I pressed them on numbers awhile back, and they finally gave me a response like, "well we don't give numbers because they vary so widely from car to car". I think they may have even posted a response in the forums to that effect.

I've seen something along the lines of, "you can speak with one of our sales reps but we don't post numbers."

Well believe me, if the numbers were good, they would be posted, advertised, marketed or they'd say how they smash the competition.

Yeah, it's a shame really. It really does sound amazing and it is made of quality material. As much as I don't want to deal with the pypes fitment issues(my other option), I'm not ready to fork over a ton of cash to lose power. I could deal with it making less power than brand x, but not less power than stock. Considering the fact I want to get LTs/xpipe on here eventually, I am deffinitely not spending ALL that money to then move backward because my choice in cat backs. SW could still address this, I'm sure no one would be upset hearing their opinion on the matter.
