  1. We all know they are not selling them lol. But it sounds like to me that they have sent out all the beta testing units?
  2. UPS will deliver mine tomorrow while I’m at work. So I will take a spin once I get home. Fingers crossed that it will work well.
  3. Awesome man. I signed up for beta testing but no email for me. I’m assuming I was not picked. Please keep us updated. Edit. I also got an email so I sent back my info so I hope they send out soon. I am excited to see how well it works.
  4. Yup. When I called in Dec 2019 they said mid Jan 2020.
  5. If this is accurate I would be interested to know why Range would not be selling this already as DFM compatible? When you talk to range they say the two are different but since GM gives no indication on the DFM trucks for how many cylinders we are running there is not a fool proof way to tell.
  6. I got the Flowmaster 50 series delta flow part #943051. Installed today with a few welds and some extra pipe. I have some video that I can splice together but it’s VERY deceiving. What you hear in the video is much less than in person. I will try to review below. Start up is louder than stock and the tone is deeper but it drops down quick with RPM and idle sounds very similar to stock. For this I would say stock sound level is a 2 and the Flowmaster is a 4 (out of 10 scale) Inside driving is more noticeable. You can tell that you are no longer stock but it’s not overbearing. Stock sound is a big fat zero. As you know you almost have to floor it to hear that you have a V8. With the Flowmaster now you can hear the engine with normal driving. The good thing is that when you are playing the radio you won’t be drown out by an overly loud exhaust. Since I took out the flapper too I can now hear when the DFM kicks in and I’m not running in all 8 cylinders. The new trucks don’t show you how many cylinders you are working with but you will know if you change exhaust. So I’m short. Stock=O and Flowmaster =7 great sound when you want it no big drone and quiet when cruising. And pops and gurgles too when letting off the gas. Now let’s get to the real sound. Stock we know outside is not too bad but man these trucks are quiet. Revving stock is maybe 2-4 decibel level and some tone. You throw this Flowmaster in and you are at a 9 easy. I’m not sure how they keep the drone down and nice and quiet inside while sounding like it’s in beast mode standing behind it. I had my wife rev a few times and wow I was not expecting. Deep tone and loud enough that everyone knows you don’t have a stock exhaust. like I said before the video won’t do it justice like being in person. I highly recommend. I wanted something that I could hear when I get on it but I didn’t want a loud drone when cruising. I’ve had the Flowmaster 40 and it sounded great but was just too loud for my liking inside. While the 50 series delta flow is not as loud as the 40 series I think it’s a good balance between sound and quiet.
  7. I’m getting a Flowmaster installed today. Just a muffler swap. Borla is a good brand but they are selling a car back system for $1100 and just want your money. Hey the Flowmaster is like $100 bucks on Amazon. If it drones I will check out a cat back system. But since this is not my first rodeo I will I tell the Flowmaster and save the extra money for other parts.
  8. I also have ATT. How did you share with your truck? I currently hotspot but it’s a pain in the butt.
  9. So I covered mine today with exhaust clamps. Not much of a difference in tone but it prob jumped up a few decibels.
  10. I got the V807 update a few days ago I believe it was Wednesday or Thursday. I’ve driven the truck a few days now and today (Saturday) I was driving and all of a sudden my infotainment system and my small screen on my instrument panel for no reason restarted while driving. I was not touching the system at all just driving. It looked like it restarted similar to if I had turned the truck off and turned it back on. Everything worked fine during the shut off and it came back on fast but then said no gps and did not have the outside temp. I got to my destination and it was parked for about an hour and no issues on the way home. It was just very strange. I have no idea why it restarted. It’s been a few days since the V807 update and this was not my first trip since the update. If it keeps acting strange I will take it to the dealer.

  12. I have exhaust clamps that I will be installing soon on a fully stock exhaust. I want to see how this sounds until I can buy my Borla S type system.
  13. I signed up too. Hope they pick a few of us to review.
  14. Does this change the tone? And if so no chance that you have a before and after sound clip?
  15. Yup I started a thread myself on this issue. Not many replies over there. but yes I have the same issue. I have noticed this and its random but does seem to happen when its been cold. Please keep us updated about what they say.
