3" Stainless Works Retro Chambered Installed

Sorry for no video, I don't really have a video camera worth a bowl of rice....but I installed my exhaust this afternoon and I FRIGGIN LOVE IT! The sound is amazing, no drone.....exactly what I was looking for!

Thanks needs to go out to Chase with Apex, customer service was top notch and he answered a bizillion questions from me (I am sure I filled up him inbox) without every losing his enthusiasm.....

I would STRONGLY suggest this exhaust to anyone, and I'd but from Chase/Apex in an instant. ......

come to think of it, I think all of the vendors on this site deserve a thumbs up...

Congrats on the system. The Retro Chambered system is amazing!

Do you gain anything?

My understanding is that the tone is deeper (lower) with the 3". I think it also helps reduce drone.

Not on a stock engine. Add some serious mods and you'll benefit some. The tone is generally deeper and less raspy.

Thank you for your business and the feedback. We sincerely appreciate both. I am glad to hear you are happy with the Retro Chambered cat back, I love that system too.

Once you start pushing a lot of air through the engine it can help but for the average Camaro it is mostly about sound.

I have a 2012 SS due mid Dec. and I am thinking about CAI inc, Stainless Works headers with high flow cats and SW Retro catback exhaust. I don't want to tune due to waranty until later. Will it work without throwing check engine codes?

Headers without a tune will result in a CEL. Either immediately or eventually.

i have a L99 with a corsa and kooks 1 7/8. Do you guys think the sw retro would be louder with the kooks headers then the corsa?

I'm gonna say yes. The SW is pretty loud with headers, especially at WOT.
