LC500 straight pipe exhaust

Found a wicked sounding LC500 with PPE headers, a PPE catless mid-pipe and Tom Titans exhaust. This has to be one of the best sounding setups that I've heard for this car.

No thanks!

Its too raspy and does the LC500's classy status no justice. Its V8 has far more potential that shouldn't be thrown away like this. I don't get how people like these setups.

The appeal of a given system is heavily to vary according to personal preference. I think it sounds great too, but I'm more happy with the fact that it actually looks the part. Not impressed with the square chrome bezels that come from factory. The pipes don't even connect to them.

If someone throws a turbo on that V8 or a supercharger I might not mind the sound, it just needs something extra.

My only concern is what the drone would be like at freeway speeds. Might have to do some additional soundproofing if you consider getting a full setup like this. Haven't been able to find if there are any noticeable gains from the improved airflow.

The ROWEN sound clip sounds much nicer .. but I'm sure they also used a better mic (PPE video guy said he used iPhone).

I'm patiently waiting for Novel to release their headers-back system but nothing is showing up on their site as yet!

This is my first post on this forum. I have had my LC a bit over a week now. My previous car was a much modified ISF which I had for close to eleven years.

Anyway, among the mods to the ISF was the PPE Equal Length Long Tube headers coupled to the PPE Dual Mode Exhaust. I will be doing the same to my LC, hopefully before the end of the month.

I know the car in the first post, and to me it sounds obnoxious is person. The darn thing can break ear drums - Definitely not for me.

PPE's dual mode system has solenoids on both pipes controlled by a switch mounted on the dashboard. Loud and throaty when open and tame but authoritative when closed. The Equal Length header also smooths out the exhaust pulses and makes it sound much more exotic than an unequal length header. I had both on my ISF.

BTW, I am a member at Club Lexus and have been for the past 11 years. My forum name over there is the same as here.
