I did find these through google shopping though
http://www.summitracing.com/parts/SLE-M31040 are these the ones you were referring to ?

*edit * yea that link is for a mustang I cant find anything for the 2012 through google shopping lol

The are pricey, but they also include resonators which really help the overall sound. I know the 2012 doesn't have headers, but I'm sure it has flanges before the stock cats, so hopefully that is the same as the 2010,2011s. if so, these would bolt right up...otherwise you may have to weld them in place.

Geeesh The price of the axle back and those I might as well get a full cat back system for that price lol that is pricey. Once I hear the MRT on my car in person i'll know if I need them. I might delete the resonators than go from there.

thanks for the help will keep you guys informed on the tune when I get it.

They are pricey indeed, but you will never ever get the kind of performance gains out of a catback either.

They are about performance....sure they enhance sound too but the purpose of these is not sound. Going with these SOLOs is 3/4s or more the equivalent of installing long tube headers. Doing any kind of exhaust is pretty much all about sound because the performance gains are minimal at best.

KM, could you combine these with a catback, like my MRT?

No problem....they are made to bolt right up to stock, so I don't see why they couldn't work for any exhaust made to fit stock.

So this is great if your getting JBA shorties, but if you want LT....this is probably out, correct?

Your right about the LTs.

But if your someone who is currently stock, and want to do shorties, and then do these HFCs...you really should just do long tubes up front. Less cost, less hassle, the same power gains.

Otherwise if you currently have shorties and don't want to through the hassel of removing them for long tubes, but want more gains, then these are a viable option...except it will require welding, where-as if the car is stock these are just bolted on.

Dumb questions incoming:

I have a "virgin" 2010 Camaro V6 Manual. I was thinking about adding a CAI first, then getting a Trifecta tune. Is there anything else I should do prior to getting the Trifecta? Does the CAI really make a difference to justify the almost 600 bucks "investment"?

Cool thanks for the input I will see how the money tree flows lol. I might have add these at a later date over the summer.

Yes, depending on the CAI it truly does make a noticable difference in both performance and sound. If you get the tune it will make even more of a difference and for minor add-ons (like a ported TB) the tune should be modified for free. At least that is my understanding.

It's $465 from us. Only $600 if you go through Trifecta direct.

Anyone thinking about a tune... they are definitely worth it, even on the manual. I know they are working on an updated tune, but if you want a tune there really isn't a reason to wait. An update shouldn't cost you anything extra as long as you have the cable. BNR does seem to always have the best deal going too...
