Flapper Removed Clip

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I recently purchased my Silverado. I am thinking about removing the flapper since I use a range anyway just to have less restriction on the exhaust. I cannot seem to find a sound clip though of only the flapper being removed. Does anyone have a sound clip of the stock exhaust with just the flapper removed? Thanks.

Sounds the same.  "Maybe a tad louder" "Maybe"

Yep, agreed. Overall volume at WOT is the same. At idle it'll sound a little deeper. Just clamp it open yourself and you'll get an idea of the sound difference.

Thanks. I was just making sure it wasnt going to sound like crap or anything. I will eventually get around to changing the exhaust but that will be a while. Figured this would help a tad with sound and a lot with flow.

Definitely won't sound like crap! I had some flat stock (1x.25") laying around so I cut a small square and used that with a hose clamp. I went back and forth many times and couldn't really notice a SOTP difference. It does let a lot more deep tone through at idle though. 

 

I had this for nearly a year before scoring a local deal on a used Corsa cat-back, which makes me grin every time I drive :)

Im definitely not going for crazy loud. I had a 2013 Camaro SS that was obnoxiously loud. Kinda over it. I do think Ill eventually get the Solo Performance exhaust with the quad black tips eventually.

I thought long and hard about that Solo kit for my truck too. It looks really nice! Especially the tips. In fact, I was convinced that was the way to go...until I heard Corsa in person at the Chevy dealer. Such a unique sound.

I wanna say that kit is more expensive. However, I had Solo on my Camaro and it sounded pretty good. Granted I added LTHs and HFs so it was crazy loud. Not going for that anymore. Just a mild nice sound of a real truck lol. It sounds like its electric right now HAHA.

Corsa is definitely more! Overpriced, really. But that patented RSC does have a very unique sound with GMs V8 firing order.

I like the way the Solo sounds too. Here is supposedly the quieter of the two.
