Does the duel exhaust add 6hp like it does on the vette?
 
Im wondering if the duel exhaust adds 6hp and 4ft pounds of tourqe as it does on the corvette. And if it does why areent they advertizing it?:iono:

It doesn't. And who cares? You'll never feel 6hp.

2013 camaro brochoure specs for 0-60 for the 1le is listed as 4.7 sec same as 2ss ls3, and anyone with a half of a brain knows with higher rear end ratio of 3.91 , 0-60 has to be quicker than 4.7 as listed by chevy. In fact motortrend test of the 1le 0-60 time was 4.3. So just because chevy says theres no difference in hp between the duel exhaust and stock exhaust they might be wrong.

Anyone with half a brain knows that 0-60 times are meaningless. There is no standard by which those tests are run.

And again, it doesn't matter. 6hp doesn't make a lick of goddamned difference. A race between equal drivers between an NPP Vette and a non-NPP Vette will come down to conditions.

Are the exhaust tips fighting each other?:laughabove:

its DUAL exhaust.

I agree that its not enough to feel in the seat of the pants, but why wouldn't it make additional horsepower over the regular exhaust? I suspect that Chevy isn't claiming it because they haven't gotten around to certifying it.

I'll be interested to see what happens when somone puts an NPP on a dyno.

No it does not add hp or torque to the Camaro.

It has been shown on numerous dynos by different shops that any changes from the cats back on the Camaro will result in zero gains. The Camaros exhaust is already free flowing which explains why this is so.

Geez, the guy asks a simple question and he gets lambasted. "Anyone with half a brain...". It was a legitimate question. :)

Some (you know who you are) just can't help themselves. They just have to act like my ex wife. Good riddance.

2008yellow 10-01-2012 04:49 PM

Well you might have 3.91 gears but you have a different trans in the car. the close ratio trans is different than in the SS. Meant to keep your engine in the sweet spot through the gears. It might be interesting. Maybe another drivers race type of thing

Are you saying that aftermarket catback exhausts also result in zero gains or just the NPP exhaust?

Yes after market catback systems offer 0 gains. Purely enhanced sound.

Then how does the NPP add 6 hp on the Corvette? Are you saying that the regular exhaust on the Camaro is more efficient than the regular exhaust on the Corvette?

This is completely false! No gains if your car is bone stock, and in the case of the 1le probably no gain. But add some mods and the exhaust will come into play! The stock exhaust is NOT perfect, it has some ruff bends but on a stock car it works. Once you mod the idea that the stock exhaust will make the same power as aftermarket or custom setup is no longer true!

Might be.

I've owned both -- from my experience, the stock C6 exhaust is more quiet than the stock C5 Camaro exhaust. Visit the C6 (Corvette) forum and read all the complaints about how dead quiet the C6 exhaust is.

You just contradicted yourself buddy.

On a pure bolt on car (intake, TB, lt headers, tune) it has been shown and proved that replacing the stock catback with an aftermarket catback on the Camaro gives no gains.

toehead93 10-01-2012 10:20 PM

Tose bad bends dont seem as importantant because the exhaust is moving differently n the large diameter pipe co pared to the narrow diameter of the header primaries. The mufflers on the LS3 are designed like most typical absorption style mufflers with perforated tube. I have not seen a cut away of the corvette muffler to compare to the SS.

This is new to me. Where has this has been shown? If an exhaust company claims that their system for the Camaro gains an average increase of up to 6HP and 7ft-lbs. of torque, are you saying that they are making false claims? Not sure if I'm understanding correctly.

The stock exhaust does not restrict flow or performance until you get up to around 680rwhp. This was documented by Ted of JRE about 3 years ago if you care to search back that far.

SOooo... if you buy an aftermarker catback, axleback or get the optional NPP exhuast, do it for the sound. That's all that is going to change.

Aftermarket manufacturers have reported BS gains ever since the first aftermarket was released.

This thread is awesome!! lol :laugh:

This is total bullcrap! A 3" X pipe exhuast will make power over the stock exhaust in propbably even a mild bolton car. Explain why my car picked up 2mph with nothing but swaping 1 chamber flowmasters to 3" glasspacks! Dont bother saying weather, because it was in simular conditions and I noticed an increas in performance right away! Plain and simple, they flow better... the stock exhaust is not going to match a good aftermarket systeme, I dont care what test say.
