2011 2SS Muffler Delete - Connecticut

I have been listening to dozens of clips on Youtube, and truly like the way the muffler delete sounds. Do I have to purchase equipment to then take to a muffler shop to have this done, or do I simply request the muffler delete?

The most popular I see is the LS3 muffler delete, and I did not know if "LS3" is specific equipment one must purchase.

Much thanks,

Gbinct

Just go to any muffler shop and they can do it. You don't need to bring anything but your car and wallet. Haggle.

Just tell em you want the mufflers removed and the tips welded back on. I would also recommend a helmholtz pipe on each side that runs into the empty fender area... It will eliminate your done. Also be ready for the decel popping.

Just had mine done and the drone is crazy bad at 1800-2000 rpm. Sounds great until your inside accelerating.

Before you do anything you should stop by the shop and listen to a few different systems we have, I always have several Gen5s at the shop.

Drone is a major concern and the worse kind of exhaust noise, it's deafening, annoying, and Fatiguing.

Ted.

Thank you for the advice everyone - and for the insight Ted. I talked to a local and highly reputable exhaust place local to Middletown, and they advised against a muffler delete today. I was told that my check engine lights would come on, and I would have a plethora of other troubles. Is there truth to this?

I would like to improve the exhaust/sound, without breaking the bank.

Thanks again!

You guys would all HATE my car lol...it drones a lot.

OP, if your car is a stick shift, the stock mufflers aren't really mufflers anyways, they're just a J pipe and a through pipe inside the big suitcases...you can make the car weigh a bit less with a new exhaust, and change the tone quite a bit with different or no mufflers though. What part of CT are you in? You're welcome to hear my car some time to give you another opinion (Kooks, 3" duals, X and Dynomax Bullets...it's LOUD)...I drive to Windsor CT almost daily...and almost everywhere else in CT randomly.

I need to swing by your shop some time Ted, soon as the new revised NW102 throttle bodies are out I'll be in to buy one.

I have the flowmaster AT without the mufflers. Sounds great but shrieks around 3000rpm. Also if the Windows are up the shrieking around 3000, is loud

Haha they told you this so they could sell you some mufflers. They are at best incompetent and at worst liars. Find another shop. I know where I would be going if I lived in CT...

I bought my SS used with 25,000 miles and the guy had already done the muffler delete. The car runs great, sounds great and I don't know what kind of drone you guys are talking about. I highly recommend the the muffler delete.

If you are NA you need a Regular NW102, it is not until over 700 RWHP that you will need the Version 2

If you want a muffler delete system with great deep sound and no drone the only way to go is the Solo J-pipe kit.
I've had the Solo axle backs on my SS for over a year and theres no drone at any RPM.
PM sent.

I know...I'm hopefully right around 500 rwhp now, but the car is NOT fast enough...I don't want to buy it twice.

I deleted my stock mufflers on my 2012 SS...It's the only thing ive done so far and the sound is AMAZING. There is 0 drone, none. It's actually fairly quiet on the inside of the car and sounds like a BEAST when you open it up.

The best part though? The engine braking...the in-gear decel gives the most awesome pops and crackles from the exhaust, it sounds NASTY. I get compliments EVERY day, lol.

Here's my car coming out of the muffler shop literally right after it was done:

I think i Paid like 40 bucks for them to cut them off and weld in straight pipes and re-weld my tips back on. The Helmholtz was another 60. 30 for parts and 30 for labor... so 100 bucks OTD. It would have been less but I did the Helmholtz pipes months later when i couldn't stand the drone anymore.

It's the part of the country...it'd cost me $200 here too...this stuff just costs more in some places. I paid $250 to have my slip joints all welded on my Dynomax 3" bullet catback, and to replace the 3" of 2.5" pipe on either side of the car between the Kooks cats and the catback with 3" pipe...so the only break in the system is the ball socket on my Kooks where they meet the cats.

I've been considering quieting the car down some...but it sounds so frigging bad ass...it's obnoxiously loud, but at the same time so healthy and clean...grrrrr

Does a muffler delete sound horrible with a stock L99?

Thanks Ted - this came from one of the most long-standing Auto shops in the state. I wish I could quote exactly what he told me. Let me ask you this - what improvements can afford to make for around $150-$200?
