Mac Prochamber

Not sure if this has been covered, but has anyone tried the Mac Prochamber offroad pipe?

From his video, off road pro chamber sounds super raspy at wot/when you step on it.

Is your goal to have a louder exhaust, or/and performance gains?

I've uses Prochambers before and wondered what they'd sound like on the V6. I'm going to get an offroad pipe at some point, but have no idea of what an x or h or even the Prochamber will sound like with my Dynomax Ultraflo cat back. I do want it louder, but not a huge fan of some of the raspy V6s out there.

Oh and can you link the video your talking about?

Prochambers in general have a 'hollow sound' irrespective of being off road/not. I have researched tons of thread since I was wanting to something louder for my setup. I have concluded that these mid pips are reallt quite at stock, and they give you a nice rumble at WOT.

But, completely different story on off road setup on a V6. Super raspy, and to some extent gives out popping noise. I believe the video wasn't a YouTube one, rather uploaded to this site via phone. Search Prochamber on this site, I'm sure you will find the thread. Or if you can find Whitelightning, maybe look his posts.

I may just 86 the Prochamber idea since they are quite a bit more that an h or x. I'd hate to not like the sound and be stuck with a high priced pipe. The Dynomax mufflers are a straight through design so they might get raspy. They sound great with the stock x-pipe, but I'm sure will change drastically with offroad.

For the price of the prochamber invest in headers and choice of midpipe

In my experiences most mid-pipes with a V6 just never really seem to sound that great. When I put the Pro-Chamber on my Cobra a few years back it sounded awesome!! I forgot who posted the video here but I think it was a little disappointing for the money that was spent on it.

+1. Prochamber is gonna cost you $310 I guess plus the labor to put it on. Use that money towards a good pair of headers, and maybe a custom mid pipe/high flow cats depending on how loud you want your setup.

Yeah, where did you find it for $310? I really don't see why the price of these pipes is so high. Macs used to be cheap.

On macs website, prochamber (from stock cats) is for $319
(sorry not 310). Prochamber from long tubes (as they call it, and it's for off road use meaning catless) is for $399.

Why would you spend $520 when you can in fact buy the same thing for $320, and then have your exhaust guy remove stock cats for a straight pipe/high flow cats or something if you want it louder? Though this is just my reasoning.

Weird. They have one for 319.00 and one for 479.00, but from the description they seem the same...

Mid-Pipes(H-Pipes/Pro Chambers)

Oh the one for 319.00 is a cut and weld.

If you want loud go with resonators and straight through piping for mufflers like Pipes Bombs or MagnaFlow Competitions. Removing cats and off road mid pipes don't always give the sound your looking for. I always wanted more sound but I also wanted a deeper as close to Muscle car sound I could get and I belive I've found it, but it's not what everyone will want.

Try doing a custom mid pipe setup, have resonators installed, try different sizing 2.25, 2.5 even try 2.75 or fnd a setup you like the sound of online, but you won't always find what your looking for by buying mass produced products more often you'll be spending more money than its worth.
Ultimately you have to decide what's best for you. No one else can decide for you.

You talk about trying 3 different pipe sizes and resonators and what not and then say one would spend more with mass produced products? Custom work is not cheap around here. I haven't heard a 2011-up V6 with a Dynomax Ultraflo catback (like mine) and an offroad h or x. Wish I have.

I'd suggest get a normal prochamber and see if you like it's sound on your setup. Talk with your exhaust guy to give you a round figure labor - I.e, if youre satisfied with just prochamber/need cats removed too/addition of glass packs if it's too loud. I haven't heard Dynomax mufflers, so I can't say how loud they're.

I'm gonna try to take a video in the next few days so everyone can hear what it sounds like now.

I'd like to here that.
What I ment was pick a size and see if you like the sound but custom exhaust work shouldn't be too expensive.

Give me a few days and I'll get a video up. I may try to call some guys I know and see what they'll charge.
