What Exhaust, headers, and so on....

So I'm in the market for some badass sounding exhaust, headers, and x-pipe. Camaro's are not my area of expertise, I've always been a mustang owner. I want my SS loud and mean. Any pointers?

Look around on the forum. I'm fairly certain there is a sticky for exhaust clips

Lots here. Find something you like, then find someone on the area to listen to it in person.

There's also tons of threads about installation, brands, cost, tuning, volume (inside the car and outside). Just spend a little time here and you should find something you like.

If you're looking for the loudest then you need to look into adding Long Tube headers and doing either a muffler delete or get a Borla ATAK system.

From what I understand you want a good set of headers but dont want to pay an insane amount of money on them because they are almost all the same. This will get you the most performance and sound. I have heard stock exhaust systems that sound great with headers. I would recommend getting a tune with them though. Ted at Jannetty can take good care of you. www.jreperformanceparts.com . Should you ever choose to do exhaust then it is all about what you like. I liek a deep tone that sounds more refined and some like the Borla Atak which sounds like the end of the world!

Check out Dynatech, Kooks, Texas-Speed, and ARH. These are some of the names I have seen most on here.

The JBA full system sounds great if you like it loud.

Yes, many people have. I'm sure it's in the exhaust clip thread.

Looking into the res delete myself. There are some video clips on line, but I would like to hear it in person.

Me too. I'm not sure if it's the video quality or what but most of the clips I've heard are rather raspy.

the resonators keep the tone from getting too raspy, i recommend keeping one, either factory or an aftermarket resonated x pipe. the muffler delete kits are good. a nice mean DD volume. with headers it is a bit much and with a cam it is deafening. My ears were ringing from the dyno runs on mine. You need to decide how much drone you can live with before you buy anything
and i like the pink, nice touch lol

Haha cheaaa buddy. I'm thinking a set of longtube headers, x pipe and mufflers will be just fine. From what i've heard in all the vid's, I don't think I'll be happy with just a resonator delete. Oh and thanks.... everything needs a little pink ha.

I have a magnaflow catback #16483 with less than 100 miles for sale. I will sell it for $850 shipped to lower 48. Magnaflow.com under exhaust systems they have a clip of it. Really deep tone . Lots of these on youtube with and without headers. It was a little to loud at cruise for me, I want near stock at cruise speeds.

It'll be easy to get the volume with great suggestions above, hard to get the sound of DOHC from a pushrod V8.

LG Motorsports' headers and exhaust are your best bet. Here's a dyno showing what a difference the setup makes. This is with headers, exhaust, and a tune.

Feel free to PM us or call us. We can get you a killer deal on this setup.

Im running the LG long tubes and the full LG 3" exhaust, X-pipe, high flow cats and mufflers and it sounds incredible behind my Maggie - cammed LS3.

I have the same setup pictured above with the cats.
