Exhaust Plans
 
2 Attachment(s)
So.....what are your plans for your car's exhaust?

Within the first year I'll probably go with an aftermarket cat-back exhaust. Hoping to get a nice SLP (or other brand) center mounted quad exhaust like I had on my old '00 SS, similar to below
Attachment 9260Attachment 9261

It'll prob be a couple years til I go with a full system, or might just wait all the way til the warranty is up (I don't feel the GMPP products will give as good of gains as aftermarket, and I don't want shorty headers). I had some LG Motorsport long tube headers on my '01 vette that I liked alot.

Anyone else thinking of going for some quad action?

I'd like to do the shorty headers ...

Then from there see what Xpipes / Catbacks are available .. so eventually do a high flow catted xpipe and aftermarket catback ..

Nice thing about my area is there are no emissions laws. So I always run with no cats on the aftermarket systems I get and just save my old stock pipes for when I sell the car.

:chevy:I'm hoping they will be awesome straight from the factory.

If you get automatic with AFM L99 - Remember it will be running on 4 cylinders at times, and the exhaust note is one reason there's no L99 or AFM on Corvettes.

Modify L99 exhaust with care. Search AFM or DOD exhaust sound on Google for more.

I am planning on upgrading about a year after getting the car. I'll have to see what is available then, but GM gets my first look since it doesn't void the warranty.

Good point. I've seen stuff about companies working on their systems to keep from getting alot of drone on those setups.

maybe a full exhaust maybe 6 months after i have it if anything is available

Exhuast Pricing??
 
Do we have any idea on the pricing yet on the shorty headers or any GM performance products that they lost for the Camaro, beside the Hurst Shifter?

Thanks!

Chances are that if the stock exhaust is what i think it is.. then it will stay stock. (from what i understand the stock will breath just fine for many more horses than stock)

CHVY4LF 10-20-2008 04:28 PM

i will look into the GMPP shortys but i will do an after market cat-back not right away but within a few months, i hate quiet V8s, did my trucks within a month of purchase, And then ill get headers.

patriotpa 10-20-2008 04:29 PM

You forgot leaving it alone.

SSINSTR 10-21-2008 01:45 AM

I was thinking about having a catback waiting for mine upon delivery but I've decided to wait and see how the LS3 sounds with the stock system. If it's throaty enough I might just get headers for the performance gains and hold off on the catback. Also cant stand quiet v8's either, the muscle needs to be heard and felt

TAG UR IT 10-21-2008 02:23 AM

I think I'll be going with a chambered exhaust and possibly long tubes. We'll have to see.

1GMFanatik 10-21-2008 02:26 AM

I plan on doing a full exhaust system, but would rather wait to see what kind of performance gains are going to bad had as well as options and how she sounds with different styles.

I know the TBSS's have 3" exhaust from the factory and people have hit 12's with stock exhaust, which is why I started cheap and simple, and did a muffler delete. So, without knowing GM's plans for the factory exhaust or even how much of a difference the GMPP exhausts are going to be, I think I'll wait.

s.norman 10-21-2008 02:43 AM

i can't wait to upgrade and i think gmpp would put out a great product anyway so i'll get both b/f delivery

headpunter 10-21-2008 02:43 AM

my problem is any exhaust option has to be compatible with a bolt in turbo set up

TAG UR IT 10-21-2008 03:08 AM

^Just cut and weld. If you are putting in a turbo, it won't matter....you'll do it. :D

Questions: Are the stock mufflers right behind the rear difuser or are those just resonators?

I would probably just remove the "resonators" behind the difuser and find new exhaust tips to start... That will be all I can afford... :(

If those are the actual mufflers.. It will be kept stock for a while....

Those are the mufflers, but you could remove them and replace the resonators up stream with glasspacks, lound mouths, or bullet mufflers.

so would new mufflers void the warrenty?????

sdimess84 10-21-2008 06:33 PM

I plan to get my own long tubes and cat back later on down the road

new mufflers would void the warranty on the exhaust parts that got cut to put the new mufflers on.

kozzmo49 10-21-2008 07:20 PM

does anyone know if they will have the catback exhaust by the time the car is released? Cuz my dealer said its a dealer installed option and that I might have to wait a couple months or so after the cars released, due to the fact GM didnt release any info YET AGAIN.. As much as I love GM their starting to piss me off with the NOT RELEASING of any info.. why is it so hard to do? just release it so we can order accordingly?! their not helping themselves by doing this, only turning some ppl away, and/or making ppl order less due to the fact they dont know if they can afford it or not.
