Anyone selling 2012 Camaro stock exhaust?

Hi, I was wondering if anyone is willing to sell the stock 2012 V6 Camaro's muffler and pipe as I am planning to get rid of my Magnaflow exhaust to keep the sound low.
Thanks!

That will be great if you can post a picture of your exhaust. I hope there will be no issues in installing it on a 2012 2LS version. How much are you planning to sell it for?
Another question, do you know how much a J pipe and the installation of J pipe will cost? The main reason I am looking for a stock exhaust is because of the drone when I am cruising around 1500-2000rpm. I heard that installing J pipe will reduce/eliminate the drone.

Thanks for your response!

They should fit it's the same exhaust as the 2010. Cost I really don't know yet how much are you willing to spend. Also I see ur in san Antonio we could meet up half way? I get out from work at 1am I'll get a picture once I get home.

Thanks for posting the pictures for your stock exhaust and yes I agree with you. Your Borla exhaust looks awesome than the bulky stock exhaust.

I heard installing J Pipes will reduce the drone on my exhaust. So, pls give me a week so that I can check if that works. If that is the case, then I will not need a stock exhaust but I am not sure who will install the J Pipes in San Antonio. I checked with couple of shops here but they look surprised when I ask them about the J Pipes. Anyways thanks again for the pictures and I ll get back to you in a week.

I paid 100 bucks for my J-pipes. Kinda high from what I hear. The place I went also acted like they had no idea what I was talking about. Showed them the thread and gave them the length I needed. Took two tries but they got it. If you've ever seen a cut away of the stock exhaust it has a J-pipe inside of it, sorta. Works the same. Thinking of changing my exhaust to a 3in all the way and will have to get new Jpipes made when I do. I have found a better shop now so no worries

Keep me posted hope it all works out for you. They wield mine and I really don't hear anything but the exhaust. Is your exhaust wielded on or clamped on?

Yes my exhaust is welded (not clamped) on but the resonator is kinda narrow which makes more noise I believe. Let me check with the auto shops here to see if they can do anything about it and yeah I will keep you posted.
I need to find another Camaro with an aftermarket exhaust just to find out how different mine sounds from others as this is my first car I am driving with an aftermarket muffler. Anyways, thanks for the posts.

I saw one of the posts saying that the V8 mufflers will not sound good on a V6 but thanks for letting me know though.

Did you buy the J Pipes online? Are you from San Antonio? If so, I would like to know which shop I can take my car to install the pipes. Thx!
