SLP VINYL BLACKOUT PANEL INSTALLED

Put it on 12/23. Slp instructions are lousy, a little backward and overly complicated. Used the parts that made sense and no problem. Today in the bright morning sun took out alot of little bubbles not seen in normal light. All is good
Tomorrow I will put on the chrome Camaro SS licence plate frame(Oh boy mod of the year!)
In January the Lloyds Camaro SS floor mats will be here

Chrome Camaro SS Licence Plate Frame

After getting the house ready for Xmas Today thought I would tackle this extremely difficult mod Sorry about the bright morning sun, but you've seen these frames before so nothing new here. Next probably a LS3 emblem for the trunk to offset the SS emblems on the right side, and thats it for the back of the car.

FLOWMASTER OUTLAW AXELBACK EXHAUST

Added Flowmaster Outlaw Axelback, Lloyds "Camaro SS" logo matts and Black vinyl bowties to wheel center caps.Outlaws are loud at startup, sound great and not to loud at idle, mean when out it and some drone at 65-75 and some boomyness around town in the 1500-2500 range but not bad. Probably get better with age/ecu learn, only 175 miles on them now. Surprised not louder, has the old school muscle car sound I wanted.

Today had the Magnaflow resonated x pipe installed to kill some drone.Outlaws on the m6, at least the 2012 drones bad on the inside from 1600-2400 rpm while going through the gears in normal driving in traffic. I mean thats all you hear,monotone boom sound.Might as well have the stock mufflers put back on! Car sounds great and just what I wanted but only from the outside or from inside at 2400 rpm on up and not really that loud. 20-25 minutes to work and my ears start to hurt a bit, though I have always had sensative ears to that type of resonating sound so have to deal with it.
Now the drone range is 1600-1800 rpm, drone toned town to livable range around town but still there and a little less on the freeway at 65-70. Also the extreme decel popping is reduced which is good and a little more bottom end torque. Felt I lost some torque of idle with the outlaws and now back and then some through the mid range(or just me but felt more solid) The sound is a little deeper but also a bit more muted and more quiet running through the gears as I expected it would be. But cleaner sounding, not as aggressive as before, though I liked that.
latter will get some insulation flowmaster suggested for the trunk as ther is none and to help with the speakers.

Oh sorry no pics but Its just a muffler and we all know what they look like and didnt have the camera anyway
