SS Stock Exhaust

I thought I saw a picture of the SS stock exhaust and it looked like it had a X-pipe in the Exhaust.Does anybody know where the picture of the Exhaust is and if it does have a X-pipe.I was thinking about either going with the GMPP Catback exhaust which is made by Borla or the Borla Catback Exhaust which looks like it comes with a X-pipe.These Exhaust are listed in the Thread that show all after market performance parts.I wonder if there will be much difference between the two.

yea it has an Xpipe. gmpp will probably be too quiet and cost more than aftermarket exhaust kits.

Nice find. Those are some great pics to work with for planning future mods. I did'nt realize there is so much room under there to work with long tubes. The more I look at the pics the more I wonder if you could go to long tube headers, leave the cats in, and just eliminate the resonators. The factory mufflers might sound pretty good (but not obnoxious) with long tubes and with the resonators gone.
Does anybody know if eliminating the resonators would put the dreaded "drone" into the system? I never was clear on exactly what the resonators do.

Must be a CTF car judging by the condition of it under there, and the quality of the welds on the exhaust. Maybe that green color on the metal parts is some type of rust protection too.

that has to be a CTF. . . no way a new Camaro would have that rust on the exhaust already.

Way to much brake dust on the inside of the rims too.

It's pre treated, galvanized. If you want to put a coat of Hammerite Rust cap and or POR 15. (Por 15 has been chipping on me.. kinda sucks after 2-3 years).

Hammerite has crushed glass and resin. It seals metals even over rust to stop the oxidation process.

Doesn't mean it is hollow. GTOs had a connection just like that but it was solid, just for structural support. As for the rust, that is the hauler, not the car.

Most of the welds you see are from robotics.

looks like it has an H pipe, H section whatever u wanna call it. If you look at the other pic its not a clamp, but a pipe between each pipe.

Put your money in the other mods and wait till this exhaust is all crusty then upgrade the exhaust. Or just take this one off and a coathanger might slip from your hand... several times.. into the shaking cats. I hate it when that happens... like my old RX7.

(don't do that... I am a bad influence...)

Actually that would not work cause they are not corroded yet.
