I read through the exhaust thread for a few days and wanted so bad to get factory mufflers on the Green Hornet but it wasn't in the budget so I opted for some Thrush Turbos to hold me over for a bit. I went to my friends shop down the road to do the job and low and behold he told me to take those back and he had something for me! Two beautiful Stainless Steel Cadillac Mufflers that were in fantastic shape with the tips! Two 1'7/8" ID Couplers, Four clamps and we were done! The pipe from Cat to Resonator was in need of some Mig Love too so he dosed some on there and WOW! These things are awesome. Quiet as a mouse until you get into it and then you have the Tiger Growl!

Sonofa!! I've spent EVERY SINGLE DAY since buying the riv trying to find these freakin tips in good shape!! Literally. They look every bit as awesome as I imagined they would on a riv. Now I'm beginning to wonder if I need those mufflers too? lol Are these off the sts? AND, most importantly can you take a video soundclip demonstrating the quiet until tiger growl?? Pretty pretty pleeeease? smile

I don't have a clue what Caddy they came off of and I don't think my phone will download a video or at least I haven't figured it out! Glad you like!

Are they really quiet?man that's nice,but I prefer the Riv's tips.On Eldorado these do look better but on the Riviera I'd take our exhaust tips.

You could easily adapt the Riv's tips to fit that system and it wouldn't change anything. Having said that, I think the ETC tips look pretty sweet!

Right? I've wanted them for so long but they never come up online and in yards around here they're always trashed.

If you make a YouTube account it'll give you the option to 'share via YouTube' and upload from there...just sayin haha

I've owned a 96 and a 97 Riviera. I've owned a 99 ETC and currently own a 2000 ESC. Each Riv had standard mufflers with tips and each Caddy had(has) standard mufflers with tips. I've never noticed any difference in growl quantity....sound the same to my 65 year old ears! I hear more growl from my 92 Riviera and my 91 Reatta, both with standard mufflers and tips.

The onlly thing I can think of is the Caddy exhauzt would growl at lower RPMs when accelerating, which actually might be kinda fun on a Riv.

At cruise it should be quiet.

Just speculating, I don't know how it's tuned.

I'm pretty happy with my PAU exhaust. I don't have to snarl (it would be nice though), just want to scoot and that's what this does.

Honestly, if it's silent with just enough growl in the right places I will go so far out of my way to find this exhaust setup. Still wish so very much that I could hear a video clip .....or audio clip eh Mr musician?  tongue  anything like a zoom or tascam or somethin and a soundcloud account or anything? Haha
