OBX LT's, Kooks Cats and Kooks Exhaust

So my wife got tired of the drone so she made me buy an exhaust set-up. Because I have the OBX headers and everyone says they are Kooks knockoffs I decided to go with Kooks cats.

They fit perfectly. The exhaust was kind of a pain because they came with Zero instructions. I had never put exhaust on before so it was a little frustrating. Note to anyone else gonna try this and have never done it before, start at the back and work your way forward.

Once I got it right it went very quick and everything is great.

The car sounds amazing.

I will post video and pics tomorrow in the daylight.

Thanks to Brandon at Marylandspeed for taking care of me and hooking me up with the sweet price.

Since you bought the exhaust and cats from me..I don't know whether to-

1.) Thank your buying (I definatly do that)
2.) Thank you for proving that someone stole Kooks design
3.) Shut my computer down and and go play GT5 rather than grasp the complete amazement of $300 headers hooked to $400 mid pipes, hooked to $1000 exhaust.

Like we discussed on the phone..it's your money..you can spend it how you want. Are you at least gonna put a Kooks banner in your sig with OBX since your car now has more Kooks exhaust on it?

I agree. So far everything I've bought for my camaro has been through a forum sponsor. But when shopping for headers I too went with the obx. I tried to justify buying through a sponsor again but prices for headers on this car are ridiculous. But I'd say give it a couple years once the newness of the camaro goes away and prices will be much lower. Just can't see spending so much when I can get a quality piece for a third of a price. Call me cheap and whatever else you want but I'd have to call myself smart.

I wonder how it would have sounded if you had kept the OBX straight pipes and just hooked up the Kooks muffler system from the straight pipes back.

When you switched over to the cats and the rest did you notice any difference in performance over the straights?

My headers won't matter when I go twin turbo anyway. That is what I have been planning since the day I drove my car off the lot. Spend a grand on a set of headers for a years worth of use is just plain stupid.

car sounds mean man. i would have kept the straight pipes myself, but unlike you i don't have a to worry about keeping a wife happy lololol. i still love the sound though.

i haven't pulled the trigger yet on a set of long tubes. I've narrowed my choices down to the OBX or the set up that oversteering is selling on the vendor section.

Hey camarocowboy your car sounds really good! I've been shopping around looking for a good exhaust set up and that's the sound I'm looking for. I've listened to soo many systems but that one just has that "solid" sound to it.
