2008-2009 Pontiac G8 Standard & Automatic
This Solo Exhaust kit is classed as a “moderate muscle” performance exhaust kit. It has a no drone only a wonderful smooth exhaust note. This in our opinion will probably be the “kit for most G8 owners”. It has more sound than the Mach-Balanced and of course the difference is that the G8 Mach has no balance pipe in the front section. It has a wonderful mid range exhaust note and as one test driver said smiling “you just want to accelerate…Wow!”
It uses Solo’s 14” Mach Muffler and J-pipes, stainless steel polished muffler (inside and out) and polished stainless steel staggered dual exhaust tips. mandrel bent exhaust pipe.
Overall note outside cabin is a 5.
Overall inside cabin exhaust note 3.5
The G8 Mach exhaust kit has a meaner sound compared to the G8 Mach-Balanced. While the G8 Mach-Balanced has a tasteful exhaust note the G8 Mach exhaust kit has that ‘American Muscle” flavour. The exhaust note throughout the spectrum never even hints at raspy or ricey only a deep, full, smooth and mean sound would characterize the exhaust note outside the cabin. Inside the cabin it remains refined and tasteful.
8cyl to 4cyl jump…almost inaudible.
4cyl to 8cyl jump…smooth octave change, not sharp at all.
Going up hills, if your eyes were closed you would not know you were going up a hill.

This is the perfect mid range exhaust system. You can get louder or quieter but this is the one right in the middle with a wonderful exhaust note that would still pass almost any “wife test.”
4 cyl mode… The 4 cyl mode has a low “guttural” sound. It is not a drone or even a hum, but a less than perfect tone that is best described as “guttural.” It’s definitely an acceptable tone but it is also definitely not rich and wonderful like the 8 cyl note. Exhaust theory would never have a 4 cyl car with a free flow 2 ½” single exhaust. The G8-Mach-Balanced has the 4 cyl mode going through dual 2 ½” exhaust. To have the 4cyl mode sound this good going through dual 2 ½” pipes (free flow) is incredible. J-pipe positioning can alter the 4cyl sound as well as the 8cyl sound.
Probable Customers- People that like moderate or mid range performance. Customers with small children. People with sensitive hearing. Customers that have close neighbors and have to leave early in the morning or come home late at night. Customers who like to hear that “edge” when driving hard but still like a reasonably quiet car.
