NOWEEDS OWNERS - PLEASE HELP!

I have a 2010 Camaro SS with manual transmission and a Magnaflow exhaust part#16580
http://www.magnaflowplus.com/showitem.aspx?id=103227&name=2010%20Camaro%20SS%20 6.2L%20V8%20Competition%20Series%20Cat-Back&

I talked to Steve at Noweeds and we looked at pictures of my exhaust online. My car has stock headers. He advised me to order the noweeds diverters
for American racing headers and put them in the curve of the pipes that lead into the muffler. Scroll
down this thread to see a picture of how this looks on the exhaust http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=7027&page=16 (This does not lead into muffler but I wanted to show how the diverters would fit on
the exhaust. Also these are nickey diverters but are still in the same format as the noweeds).

The part of these divertes that fit in the piping is five inches. When I measure my exhaust in this section it appears to me that there is not enough piping on my exhaust to put the diverters in that section so I was thinking about using the diverters for the stock exhaust. See here for an example of how this looks http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...oweeds+install


After talking to Steve about this he wants me to get him the measurements from the center of the clamps of the cats straight back to the muffler(not pipe length) and the measurements between the pipes as they enter the muffler.

Do any of you have advice as to which diverters would work best or be the easiest to install?

I'm not sure, I installed his kit for the L99 (auto tranny) and it bolted in just as he said it would, after using a sawzall to make two simple cuts in the front of the first central muffler.

Sounds to me that Steve is trying to determine which kit will provide you with enough clearance, obviously there are moving parts on the diverters and you need to ensure that they can open and close without interuption. Judging from the picture of your exhaust you could probably fit an LS3 kit in there versus one for ARH, but if you're looking to do headers anytime soon, you probably should opt for the ARH version and save some $$$. Steve will definitely take care of you, don't worry about that!

i think you should go for the L99 diverters ... i have the ls3 diverters on my l99 because of the borla s-type catback but i feel the ls3 version has too much piping. but you should be fine with either the l99 or ls3 diverters. goodluck

Steve/Noweeds, Nick/American Racing Headers, Casey/Wegner Motorsports and Nickey Chicago all worked together in order to make certain that the Noweeds diverters and ARH exhaust system would all work well together.

Our kits are manufactured by Noweeds.
