Camaro straight pipe, a quick and easy exhaust mod (videos)

Hey there Camaro5 members. If you are a little tight on the finances but want to help out your exhaust sound and power. You Tube links to a 200.00 quick and easy exhaust mod (where stock mufflers are removed and replaced with straight pipe). Why are some spending the big bucks when you can do this? Thanks to Hylton for posting these up for me.

Negotiated price for Camaro 5 Members 200.00 installed. Colorado only but just about anyone can do this if they take their time to get the proper allignment and angles. Fabricated and installed by Exhaust Pros of Commerce City Colorado 303 287-9669. Dont forget to tell them you are a Camaro 5 member
start up





easy drive off





normal drive by




getting on it drive by





Getting on it drive off with trac control still on.





close up of pipe






additional shots of pipes

I just love how you can now see the IRS with those jerry cans removed. Great mod for looks and sound!

Yes, they just gutted the muffler with a strait through pipe. DIY would just be cut the muffler off, slip on this section and tack weld it on.

It won't affect computer -- nothing back past the cats are monitored. LS/LT/SS cars all have true duel exhaust w/ an X-pipe. And yes, the cats (2 per bank, 4 total) do muffle the car a bit.

Sure, just tell them you have inline mufflers. It's the latest technology out there and the Camaro is the first car to have it available as an option.

Every state is different. But as long as you dont touch the cats there is no effect on the smog. Some areas have local ordinances regarding mufflers but then again I am not putting on my front license plate either.

Absolutely! Everything in front of the rear axle is left intact.

Cool I think! It could only be better, for the money, if the pipes were mandrel-bent and stainless (they didn't look stainless anyways). I think the only muffling left are the resonators. It sounds pretty good!

on start up and idle it sounds just like my truck. not that that is a bad thing.

i have a 2001 silverado with the 4.8 LR4(iron cousin of the LS engines) and the exhaust dumps right after the cat. it was suppose to be a temp fix, that was 2years ago.

is that true for the camaro too?

BTW, this is sweet!

No I am sorry for mis stating the pipe material. These are aluminized metal not stainless. I called the installer and he said he would try to make some extra pipes when the next one comes in but in reality this is pretty custom pipe bending and hanging to get the pipes centered and at the right angle to keep the factory exhaust look out the back. I have to tell you that after driving it some today, and the comments I have got from friends and folks that pull along side at stop lights. This exhaust has really made a difference. The thing I love is all the engineering GM put into the sound is not lost it is enhanced.

He's done a good job at centering from the pics' that I've seen. It can't be to easy to get them to align like that, but they look good.

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.
