Muffler delete with Magnaflow TRU-X Performance Resonated Universal 2.5" X-Pipe #1138

Alright guys, I'm completely new to doing mod to any vehicle post 1990. I've owned my 2012 Camaro RS (V6) for about a year. I'm trying to figure out how to get the best growl without replacing the entire system and I know straight piping is a waste of time. I'm considering a muffler delete with Magnaflow TRU-X Performance Resonated Universal 2.5" X-Pipe #11386. Looking for some advice, tips, weather or not this is logical for the sound that I'm going for. And yessss I get it, I got the V6, can't change it now. So the hate comments will be ignored.

I've got the V6 as well, I went with a Megnaflow cat-back exhaust system with a AFE intake. Sounds great!

Sounds similar to this

A muffler delete with the Magnaflow resonated X actually sounds pretty dang good. I was pretty surprised.

Best regards,

I think you have a good plan. Go for it. Replace the stock H pipe with the resonated X from magnaflow, dump the stock mufflers and weld in some pipe. Last but not least, get yourself some nice looking tips. I went with 4" double walled tips from Magnaflow and they look great.

Later on if you feel it is too loud you can throw in a pair of resonators, or even mufflers if you feel it is way too loud.

Otherwise if you love the sound, but got drone and can't stand it, you can add J-pipes (Helmholtz pipes) to the exhaust pipes and kill the drone at highway speeds.

Best of luck, and don't forget to chime back in and let us know your thoughts.

I have the Magnaflow X pipe with after market mufflers and it's loud enough for me

Wow, new to this fourm and I can't express how much I appreciate the advice guys. I thought the plan sounded logical just needed some back up! I plan on going for it! Thanks to all, especially KMPrenger. I plan on going with your word. Seeing as it was almost exact to mine. I should have this running within a month. I'll post a video update then!

I did this exact setup to my car and love it. Sounds the best and its one of the cheapest costing exhausts out there.

Here is a link to some more info you want to check it out.

Now this has me interested. It seems to be the right mix of sound and volume.

There are a couple of pretty good video clips in this thread. I shouldn't really express surprise at our products sounding so good, but I'm pretty surprised the muffler delete and Tru-X resonator does sound so excellent.

I have the stock HPIPE (with Doug Thorley Shorty Headers and Super 44 Flowmasters ) and I love the sound of an H over the X. I get tons of Exhaust Popping which I enjoy too.

This video above sounds I'm sure like yours? He has an X..
