Performance Exhaust Option
 
Well the option to add the additional performance exhaust..... worth it or not worth it??? Hmmmmm...... not to much info. on this, no HP/TQ numbers or sound or anything? I am sure most of us will wait for the aftermarket as so will I. Probably will go with the LoudMouth again like I had on my 02.

Now whats got me all worked up are Headers from the factory. I assume this is a Dealer Installation and will be covered under the warranty. If this is the case then sign me up.

yeah i doubt we will get a lot of info on the actual numbers the exhaust will provide for a couple more months

the headers will be covered under warranty if your dealer installs them

The_Blur 10-08-2008 10:55 AM

It's always worth installing performance parts. :evil:

Yeah I defiantly don't want to be one of the first sets they install. Just don't feel to comfortable with a dealer installing Headers. I wish I could take them to a performance shop.

Would you buy the one from Chevy or another after market company???

Because they would be a warranty item, I expect to get the 'shortys' then custom rest of the way with hi flow cats. That should maximize power from that aspect and give me a distinct tone as well. Nice perc of being in the welding and fab business and a friend with custom exhaust shop.

why doubt the dealer for a header install? it wouldn't be any different then instally an exhaust manifold

stovt001 10-08-2008 10:33 PM

I thought I heard once that to be covered under warranty, the dealer must install an item when the car is purchased. This seems pointlessly restrictive and I think it may be wrong. Will dealer installation at any time be covered under warranty?

playhard67 10-08-2008 10:38 PM

IMO as long as it is a GM part and a dealer installs it, it is under warranty

correct.

haulass350 10-08-2008 11:33 PM

for the money i dont think i'll put it in the gm parts. i have more faith in the aftermarket sources liek kooks headers, as for the shorties why waste the money on shorties jsut wait and spend a few more bucks on longtubes and get a better power gain. just my opinion still not sure what exhaust i'm going with. pretty sure wheels are coming before anything lol

fbird777 10-09-2008 03:09 AM

Shorty headers FTL, might as well keep the stock manifolds, you will see minimal gains. If putting longtubes on an LS3 is anything like an LS1 you should see 15-20rwhp.

TAG UR IT 10-09-2008 03:13 AM

Shorties will keep the warranty, but also add the least power gains.

Personally, I'd go w/ the long tubes, get the most hp from the deal, and call it a day!

How long could we wait before long tubes are available on aftermarket? Couple months? I would go that way if it's not too long a wait.

Txturbo 10-09-2008 09:42 AM

from what I've read......Chevrolet Accessories permanently installed at the time of new-vehicle delivery are covered under the New-Vehicle Limited Warranty. If installed after delivery, coverage on parts and labor is for the balance of the new-vehicle warranty or a minimum of 12 months/12,000 miles, whichever comes first. Chevrolet Accessories not requiring installation or purchased over the counter carry a 12-month warranty on parts only. Does not apply to licensed products

o2camaross 10-09-2008 09:58 AM

LT headers FTW, hands down on performance gain. ill bee waiting for kooks to make some as well. They're one of the best brands out there.

JameSS 10-09-2008 11:05 AM

Hmmmm ...... a gauranteed 17 HP to the wheels on the 4th Gen., this is something I will be defiantly looking at....

CWI 10-11-2008 09:03 PM

Any idea what the cost would be for long tubes and high flow cats? Maybe go that way and keep GM catback

PLEASE tell me you are joking....

a grand for a catback system for a 4th gen? give me a break. thats highway robbery. :thumbdown::thumbdown:


i can get you a magnaflow cat back for less than $500.00

and longtubes +ORY for 4th gens for roughly $500.00 shipped.

joes3rdcamaro82/91/2010 10-11-2008 10:31 PM

How much do you guys think the performance parts do to increase horse power?

Cold Air

Headers

Cat Back

A Performance Tune

With those upgrades, do you guys think 490hp is asking to much? Think it will touch 500hp?

13F20 10-11-2008 10:55 PM

Well if you get the shorties, cat back and air intake, just get the system calibrated and there you have it.

Chocolate Apocalypse 10-11-2008 10:59 PM

Hmm, depends on how restrictive the factory pieces are and how conservative the tune is but I'd say about 480-485 hp at the flywheel. I cant wait for SEMA so we can see what some aftermarket companies have in the works for the 5th gen. :D

I would never pay full price for a system.... I always look out for the group buys, sales, etc. If I can't get at least close to half off I'm not going to bother.
