mine is NOT Y-piped.

is there a difference in the sound of the Y-pipe and non-Y piped?

That's very true.

I have a '93 and am running straight pipes out the sides. Does sound much better, and louder.

Sorry DW, its been a couple yrs. Post up some pics of your engine room. Probly not a whole bunch diff. You'd have to hear the boats side by side to tell i would think.

Agree, I had LT headers, no cats, and Mopar exhaust on a 01'. Just wicked sounding, extremely aggressive, loud, and deep. Sounded like dookey stock, they bottleneck the heck out of these cars. Going to pry grab an 08', incredible cars, so raw, brutal, and loads of character which is missing from almost every sports car today, Vette feels like a snoozemobile in comparison lol and I've tracked a C6 Z06 plenty of times.

DMOORE,

You really don't like the V-10 sound? You do make a great point about it being "lost" between a V-8 and a V-12 (the sound of a wound-out V-12 Lamborghini engine in a Class 1 boat is my personal favorite), but it's still kind of a unique sound. To each his own.

Heck, I like them all.

I wonder how this package will perform and handle in a single engine setup compared to a NXT.....?
Yeah, exactly, me too!!

Was it your boat that ran the NXT? If so, how was that compared to the bravo style drives?
