(That does make sense, but, I'd want to see a dyno on it). These cars or exhaust systems really are not all that robust/complex to do that.

The main reason typically is for low speeds/rpms = in town areas and such for noise restrictions. BUT that mostly is in Europe. (And we not be Europe)

But that doesn't apply to the ZL1 correct? The dealer is talking out of his or her ass period!
