Anyone recommend a compromise between performance and quiet? I am going to install Kooks LT headers. But we do a lot of travelling in my 2010 Camaro. I don't want to spend 10 hours in a car fighting to hear the radio or the wife.

I know I am being selfish. I want more Horses but I want it as quiet as possible at the same time.

It's all completely subjective - but to me - I don't find this objectionable at all. I drive my car on long road trips, and as long as I keep away from cruising at 1,800 rpm (there's a resonance right at 1,800 rpm), it's completely just a purr inside the car with the windows up. This is my car with Texas Speed LT's, no cats, 3" pipe into Flowmaster American Thunder....

being the new guy here so I don't wanna irritate anyone, but there seems to be too many folks starting their motors and revving them before the oil warms a little and moves to all the places it should be.

As someone that's had a number of Harley panheads and Shovelheads with straight 50 weight oil, unless you're rich...let it warm up a tad before you rap it. Chevy engine abuse is sad.

Hopefully no one is irritated by a little friendly advice.
I'm not sure about everyone else but normally I've done some testing of the new setup to include driving and checking to ensure everything is tight so the car is already warm before shooting video.

I know I am being selfish. I want more Horses but I want it as quiet as possible at the same time.
My 2.5" GHL mufflers are advertised as having no drone. I plan to put them at the end of an LG Motorsports 1 7/8" long tubes, high flow cats, full 3" h piped exhaust. The exhaust should cool a tad by the time it hits the 3" - 2.5" reducers for the mufflers, thus not needing the volume. The system should handle up to 650 HP at the wheels before the mufflers become a problem. 500 RWHP is my long term goal. The exhaust should get me toward the 400 mark with the tune Anthony at LG Motorsports puts in it.

I'm told the GHLs are quiet until you want them not to be. Like you, I want quiet until I floor it.

I AM buying the laptop tune setup from LGM to return the car to stock should I need warranty work. With only 750 miles on it, there's still time for something to go wrong. Having the ability to return to a stock tune should avoid any warranty problems as Anthony is a master tuner and he will not harm the motor. The only warranty problem I might run into is driveline. More power is an easy cop out for voiding driveline warranty problems. I'm gonna bribe the LGM guys with lunch if they install my BMR rear trailing arms when they put in my exhaust. I'm a disabled vet that was run over by a car in a Walmart crosswalk while pushing my shopping cart back in September. I can't do the physical stuff anymore. Maybe someday I'll get a nice settlement check, but that will probably take a couple of years. I'm still working on my VA disability....THAT takes forever.
