Question Moderate Exhaust System advice.

Hi -

I'm looking for a moderate exhaust system that I can enhance my 2015 SS with. Nothing real expensive, just to give the engine a little more noise and boost. Thanks for your input. Ren

Running Magnaflow resonated x-pipe through stock LS3 exhaust and muffler delete. I'm pretty happy with it.

If you're not an NPP car already, perhaps an NPP system? They are for sale all of the time for around $400. Can't beat the sound it puts out for that price. Just a thought.

You're getting alot of different suggestions already...Maybe more info would help narrow it down. What is your price range? Do you just want loud or deep growl? How much hp are you looking to add? Is a tune out of the question?

Good questions to consider, OP. The exhaust combinations for these cars are nearly infinite and produce all kinds of different results (sound, power gains, cost, etc.). The stock exhaust does not do these cars justice, but there are many ways to address the issue. I would suggest listening to videos, which will help some, or hook up with some local Camaro folks and actually witness their cars' exhaust system.

Since everyone else will offer you the ideal exhaust that THEY chose, I will also offer mine:

First, I trashed the stock mufflers and replaced with Solo Axle-backs w/ J-pipes. I also installed a Cold Air Intake system which provides quicker throttle response and some added under-hood sound. Much improved sound all around and no annoying in-cabin drone.

Next, after about a year of that, I wanted a bit more sound and a performance improvement. I went with long-tube headers and high-flow cats, and a custom tune. My car sounds and runs awesome now and I wouldn't change a thing. Still no drone, big performance boost, and a nice low rumble until I punch it (which really lets people know you've got a little extra underneath the pretty exterior).

CRAP! I didn't notice that. Just get a CAI and a good axel-back system.

OR... trade up to a V8.

Honestly, just go with a axelback system and call it a day, no need to spend money on HFC's and an X pipe.

All the sound and power restriction lie in the cats. So you would need to replace with high flow cats of cat delete. Axle back wont do anything except waste money
