It will still utilize the factory cats/downpipes.

Although, most performance cars already come with "hi flow" cats from the factory.

If you are looking for all out power, you can always install higher flowing aftermarket cats.

That's kinda my plan. I dont think putting new HF cats in the DPP exhaust will dramatically affect the sound...if so it should be better :P Just gotta find some that will work well. I'll do some research more so once I actually HAVE my 1LE, I'll know what cats to put on her.(along with the CAI/headers)

Maybe it's just easier to NOT order the DPP and get all aftermarket from headers back. hmmmm

Yeah, some of the more experienced Camaro guys should be able to help you out. I've learned a lot about the intake/air flow of the LS3 so far.

I would still order the NPP exhaust, just install a set of long tubes & high flow cats. I rather have the catback financed rather than dish out an additional $1k for an aftermarket catback after purchasing the car.

Fyi, my custom 1le emblems have been shipped. Keep a look out for my thread when I post them.

Where do you plan on mounting the emblems?

On each side of the hood buldge.... Just like the ZL1.

I made sure they were made the same size as the ZL1 hood emblems

I'm going to remove the SS badging from the grille & trunk as well.

Welcome...

The Cobalts are quick, but you are going to love the Camaro. I owned a E46 325is sport package 5 speed prior to the 11 LS 6m, and the Camaro felt every bit as tight and nimble as the Bimmer, frankly the Camaro was even better, even the LS... Fast forward, my LS is long gone due to starting a family, but the 1LE will take its place here in a few months. Believe me, you will not be disappointed!! Do not hesitate to pull the trigger... The 5th gen may be a bit heavy, but it disappears once you're moving, and the visibility isn't nearly as bad as some make it seem... Let us know how it turns out... My LS was a dream to hammer in the twisties, and ran like a dream all day long at the speed limiter, the 1LE is going to be a great car...
