Isnt the exhaust assemmetrical, wouldnt you just make one to fit one side then copy for the other?

Well in a perfect world or if perfection was not important you could do that. However to get everything lined up and in the center of the factory hole it was a process of bend fit and bend and fit until everything was just right. I am sure that some of the kits can come pretty close and they are getting another camaro in a few days so they will play around and see if they can come up with an acceptable kit. Other issue is the tip. I used the original factory tip but as a kit the unit would more than likely have to have a different tip already installed. Not a bad thing cause there are some real cool tips available.

I would say about 15 lbs each at most.

Awesome! Now THIS is what I'm talking about. Don't need fancy mod kits that cost tens of thousands more. Solutions like this are a little more realistic. Thanks!

I thought you meant the pipes centering the back of the car fro underneath. As far as center of the hole goes that shouldnt be a problem, you should have exhaust hangers that hold them in the center of the hole.

Are you offering these tail pipes available for sale? I can install them myself when my car comes in, but I would like to buy a set for my car if you are making them.

Very nice! I would love to hear some longer videos though because it is hard to get a feel for it only hearing it for 5 sec.
