question about exhaust for the 2012 3.6L

ordered my CAI system last night for $390.00 with shipping included!
Today I have an appt at 3pm to tint my windows.
Next gotta order my 20" Lexani rims & exhaust.

Anybody knows which exhaust is best for the 2012 3.6L Chevy Camaro?

the big companies are good, dont go muffler delete, heard it sounds bad on the 6 bangers. just need to decide what tone, and how much drone you can live with.

This question has only been asked about 30 million times.

Everyone's definition of "best" can be drastically different.

What you need to do is go into the V6 bolt ons section and view the exhaust sticky thread at the top of the page. Has just about every exhaust available for the Camaro V6 there with videoclips.

Take some time and give them a listen...and do yourself a favor and try to listen to them either with good speakers that can reproduce bass tones or decent headphones as it makes a big difference.

I guess you know you have the LFX engine which may make a difference. Hope your CAI was for a 2012 and not a 2010 or 2011.
