New member. Hello.

Hello, all. I just joined after lurking here for a few weeks. I just bought my first Camaro (a 2SS/RS L99) July 3rd after much research and test driving. I've always been a Bowtie man, but it was always trucks before. Time for a little hot-rodding!

I've even begun modding already with a K&N Blackhawk CAI and am trying to decide on an exhaust system now.

Anyway, I thank you all for the info here that helped me decide on a Camaro versus the competition, and I could not be more pleased. I look forward to getting to know y'all.

Welcome. The only way to go on the exhaust is the Solo J-pipes.
On the L99 it reduces the drone and sounds fantastic. Believe me
it is the overall best with the auto Camaro imo.
And again welcome to camaro5 and good luck with your new car.

Thanks for the tip. I was fairly set on Flowmaster AMT axleback, but am now considering this.

Welcome to Camaro5. Like myold88 said, the solo with j-pipes is the way to go on the L99.

Welcome and congrats!! My wife has the solo J pipes and I think they sound really good, can't hear them all that good on the inside of the car unless hammering on it, but from the outside it sounds really good to me.

CONGRATS on the ride, and Welcome to our happy little corner of the net, and to Camaro5. There is a BIG fridge on the back porch with anything you can think of in it...help yourself...of course only take what you can LEGALLY have. Make yourself at home on one of the big fluffy couches, kick your shoes off, put your feet up on one of the tables, yes we are allowed to do that, mom's, wive's, husbands, girlfirends and boyfriends here don't care....and take it easy.



oh...btw....every once in a while a food fight breaks out...so you may not want to wear nice clothes here.

Welcome!!
