Would anyone be interested in custom modified stock exhaust?

i am looking at modifying stock exhaust to sound like the granturismo s and the gts, by adding a valve and straight pipe into the stock muffler

this way you would retain quiet drone free stock and loud at a click of a button or via rpm`s

o yeah and it wouldnt cost $4000-$5000

Sounds interesting... I was considering something similar with a local custom fabrication shop, but hesitate because of the uncertain outcome.

I went to a local custom muffler shop and got myself an x-pipe, midpipes, 2 resonators and muffler delete with quad 3.5 inch tips at a resonable price. The sound is amazing and zero drone so far. I will take some videos with the go-pro and post up here.

There has been discussion on the forum about installing valves that switch between muffler exits and straight pipe exits. IIRC, at least one member here has done it. The only issue is that these cars sound bad (not in a good way) with straight pipes IMHO.

I am located in Sacramento and i have a go pro that i can use to post up some videos. But if you want to meet up and listen to it in person, that sounds great also. I am a fairly new owner and i wasn't sure about going the custom route on the exhaust and was saving up for Larini x-pipe and Larini mufflers. But i came across another 2007 quattroporte owner with the custom x-pipe and resonators with muffler delete and i knew instantly that this was the setup and the sound i was looking for (weight savings, a great clean no drone sound, and 1/5 the price ).

This is the local shop i went to: (if you look at the gallery, you will see other owner's quattroporte )

Looking forward to the sound clip. Sacramento is not too far, and it looks like that shop does some very nice work.
