One of the toughest things about picking an exhaust for your car is just how subjective sound can be. You might like a particular brand’s “signature sound,” but not love the way their systems sound on your particular car. If you have a popular car like a 5th Gen Camaro, you can probably go to a few car meets and find someone who already installed a system you’re interested in and listen to it live and in person, but what if you have something new, rare, or a combination of the two?
Such is the case with the 2014 Chevy SS sedan. Get two of them together anywhere but a NASCAR track, and you’re hosting the national owner’s convention. The car has been imported in such limited numbers that it’s hard to find anyone who has the exhaust you’re considering so you can have a listen. Sure, you could reason that since it’s got the same Holden DNA as the GTO and G8, you could try to find one of those with the same company’s system for comparison, but it’s just not the same as actually hearing the right pipes on the right car.
Fortunately, Flowmaster has been going out of their way to document, by way of video, their exhaust systems so that potential customers can see and hear exactly what they’re getting into. This new video for their Force II cat back system for the SS is a perfect example.
Flowmaster has a whole YouTube channel loaded with videos like this, to help you decide if their system is right for you, and in cases where they offer multiple options (and there are a LOT of applications where you have a choice of two, three, or even four different muffler types), to let you choose between them before laying down the dough.
