Pypes GTO H-Box and Pype Bomb Axle Back

Our sponsor, GTOG8TA.com sent me a new H-Box and Pype Bomb Axle Back exhaust for evaluation. Stay tuned to this thread as I install it and test it and post some videos.

Here's the products on their site:

OK I finally got some time today to work on this project. I am having surgery tomorrow morning to have my gallbladder out and wanted to make some progress today on this project.

To install the H-Box, you first have to cut the stock resonator off. I used a reciprocating saw with a metal cutting blades. I cut it off really close to the resonator to make sure I had enough pipe to slide into the H-Box:





I then test fit the stock pipes to the new H-Box. I had to use my Dremel to debur the pipes so that would slide smoothly into the H-Box. I used the supplied band clamps to temporarily attach the H-Box:



Here's the Pypes Axle Back Exhaust. Very nicely made:



I got everything installed today and it sounds REALLY nice. It is louder than the Magnaflow exhaust I took off and has a nice DEEP tone to it. It now sounds more like a classic Pontiac musclecar. It was pretty easy to install and fits better than my Corsa Sport or Magnaflow exhausts did. I'm pretty impressed.

I ran out of time to finish aligning the tips and taking more pics/video. I'll do that after I recover from surgery.

Here's a video clip. The audio really doesn't do justice to how deep this system sounds. I really like it.

My stock pipes looked awful and one had a plastic bag melted to it. So I pulled them back off and cleaned them up with a wire wheel.

No, as I mentioned above, I had surgery and haven't finished adjusting the exhaust or had time to do videos.

We'll be getting the clips up tomorrow. I've recruited my son to help with the GoPro for a few different shots.

Well, we made do with my son's pocket video camera. I bricked my GoPro. I'd like to do some more video of in car sound and more pics of the installed system when I get the GoPro back operational.

That works. For now I am using it and it's good enough to hear the sound. I'm using it on the site if you don't mind.
