Just bought this brand new from Camaro5 user mikeSS!





Getting it to tame down the higher pitched exhaust notes in the upper RPM range....i.e. rasp. Exhaust sounds great up to 2500-3000RPM but starts to scream a little too loud for me after that. I'm also looking into DT shorties and I'm hoping to get those soon.

Thanks for the quick responses! I'll start looking for both the trunk blackout and gill decals!

Ordered the DT short tubes after doing some somewhat exhaustive (partially, haha) research on headers.

It took me a while to decide on LT's vs ST's and decided that I wanted to get something that didn't require me to buy something else in order for it to perform exactly the way I wanted it to (i.e. having to buy/get a tune for the CEL to be removed) in lieu of the added performance/sound of the LT's. The LT's will add quite a bit more hp compared to the ST's and will also add the increased loudness of the exhaust.

I feel comfortable going with the DT's, though, due to while reading through it seems that some people were having some problems with LT's (not most people, but some) whereas I couldn't find anyone having trouble with the DT shorties and everyone who had them raved about how much they liked them. No CEL's and a good fit and finish. They are ceramic coated and it seems nobody has been having any heat issues. Also, IMO, they were a good price.

Very nice I have been debating LTs or shorties and I think I'm gonna lean towards LTs when I can afford the LTs and tune haha. But can't wait to hear a vid of your new exhaust sound when you get everything installed.

Yeah I would've gone LT's if I didn't need the tune. Not that I don't want to tune....but just not right now haha.....and didn't want to drive around with the CEL.

I'll get some before and after vids for sure.

Nice can't wait. O by the way what did you ever end up doing with your fuze box cover. I remember you deciding between the black bowtie or not and I suggested just using a sharpie to go over the outlines.

Yeah man I decided to opt out of putting the bowtie on since I already have the bowtie on my engine cover....and I decided on doing what you said and outlining that with the marker....I just haven't got to it yet, haha!!

Thanks for PDR!!! Third time I've required PDR services and I'm thankful to find someone who is excellent at what they do.....and charges great rates to boot. Now lets just hope I don't require anymore of his services
