Questions for the experts....

I ordered an SS/2 and was asked if I wanted the "catback" exhaust. I listened to the salesman and it sounded cool, but I felt silly about asking more about it. Can anyone help me on this?

Catback exhaust will give you a little more power (better exhaust flow) and a "better" exhaust note (louder with more growl). I got it with mine.

From Wikipedia:

Cat-back
Cat-back (also cat back and catback) refers to the portion of the exhaust system from the outlet of the catalytic converter to the final vent to open air. This generally includes the pipe from the converter to the muffler, the muffler, and the final length of pipe to open air.

Cat-back exhaust systems are a very popular aftermarket performance enhancement. They generally use larger diameter pipe than the stock system. Good systems will have mandrel-bent turns that allow the exhaust gas to exit with as little back pressure as possible. The mufflers included in these kits are often glasspacks, again to reduce back pressure. If the system is engineered more for show than functionality, it may be tuned to enhance the lower sounds that are lacking from high-RPM low-displacement engines.

Personally, I'd wait and get an aftermarket system that will most likely have an even more aggressive sound.

Well, the thing about the GMPP catback is that if it is installed by the dealer, it will maintain your warranty. That's why I am getting it.

There was a question here: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...928#post300928,

about the difference between the Red SS and the Silver SS. Which one is the SS1 and the SS2?

just in case no one reads the answer on the linked page...

red SS badges means it has the RS package, silver means it don't have the RS package.

1SS & 2SS can have either

There are no spare tires for the SS because the spare wouldn't be able to fit over the Brembo brakes.

By the way I was raised in EP. Where are you ordering from?

It comes with a sealant in case you get a flat.

and yes I was surprised when I heard they were out in other places.

My mom used to work at Dick Poe so she had a bunch of dealer friends and we called one of her friends at gateway and he said they were out of allocations.

I really don't like asking for favors, but I pulled MAJOR strings to get in at Rudolph! The guy said after me there was one more. As I left, there was a couple who walked in asking for one!

Have you seen the CAMARO in real life?

Yeah I saw the silver SS and the BLACK concept at the L.A. auto show. It looks great in person. It's not as big as I though it would be.

snobby?
I lived in the ghetto part of town. I don't know what you're talking about.
It's probably like that now, because they've been building a bunch of things out there. But when I was there everything on the east side of Joe Battle was an empty desert. Except for the SAC and a couple of houses.
If anything the west side is the snobby part of town. In my opinion

I'm not too familiar with all the "enhancement" stuff like this either. What exactly does this add to it? Like what do you mean by "more power"? I'm just wondering what the benefits are, aside from the "louder" sound, which I would definitely like. How much is the option? And is it RPO or LPO? Or neither?

Thanks

By more power he means more horsepower. a catback allows those exhaust gases to flow through the pipes without being held back, therefore allows more "breathing room" for the engine.
We still don't know pricing, but I believe it's an LPO as of now.
