Camaro SS RS Straight Pipe , before and after vid

As featured on homepage.


I wasn't particularly pleased with some of the videos of this, so I decided to make my own. It's done using a simple handheld camera and iMovie off my Mac, but I think it gets the job done. So check it out. Also, I have pictures at the bottom of the page... definitely worth checking out

In-car video here: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=32664

haha yeah, that was pretty awesome. I just spent about 25 minutes on iMovie and threw it together real quick. I loved hearing it for the first time outside the car (no one else drives her!!), so I just HAD to get the movie made quick.

Thanks Andro, I appreciate it.

And Parker, I knew if I didn't explain that I would get flamed for having such a weak launch haha

I agree, nice editing and an excellent demonstration. This mod is very tempting. I am going to install the Doug Thorley shorties this weekend and was planning on ordering a Cat back set up from either Borla or Corsa, but I may just try this for the time being since the price is so reasonable. Are the straight pipes SS or Aluminized?

I have SS. I haven't heard any Camaros with headers and the muffler delete, but I'm thinking it will be a LOT louder, but I don't really know.

In all honesty, I couldn't tell much of a difference. This is because I got the straight pipes put on before the car was broken in, so I never ran the car flat out beforehand. But you should check this thread out: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=26993

Sounds like a ravenous beast on the prowl for horsemeat with a side of rice.

I can't complain enough about CA smog regs...

haha well thanks for your approval, and for your allowance of me having this car. In my years of driving, I have yet to receive a ticket ...knock on wood.

And here's a couple pictures I snapped real quick, just for kicks and giggles.

as far as I know (though I don't live in CA), the mufflers shouldn't effect emissions...though I do hear they are a little touchy on the volume of the car
