I really think you guys that have tried it all have come away with the exact same feeling......WOW! GM has this exhaust tuned perfect for the mod. Still trying to get the details on a CAI mod that uses the existing housing and mass flow sensors. I will post as soon as available or if you guys figure it out let me know.

Well it definately sounds a lot better, it does have some kackle if I downshift and let off the gas. But when I get into it, oh that's more like it
It isn't too loud, especially inside the cabin and when I took on the Interstate, (Windows up)I didn't notice any noise untill I was about 80 MPH around 2000 RPM in sixth, so I very happy with it.
It took an hour and 15 minutes and only cost me $63. So for the interim, well worth it for me. Figure I'm not out much money when I eventually get headers and if I have to redo the exhaust.

That cackle is just the sound of power and engine pressure when you lift it. it will grow on you when you hear your friends actually saying that is the part they really love. But like you I am thinking now what>

Just had mine done today...sounds really good guys!! Really nice!!

Friend has a 2002 with SLP exhaust and to me, it sounds very close...pops some when off the gas but nothing it didn't do before, just a bit louder now.

$125 is all I paid and that is with stainless pipes! Excellent mod...more than happy with it!

I just had mine done yesterday for $150. That included stainless, mandrel-bent pipe that the shop custom-cut and bent while I watched. 'Took under 2 hours and it looks and sounds great (the start-up sounds vicious!). I weighed the stock 'trash cans' and they were 18 lbs. each, so that's over 30 lbs. shed by removing those big, ugly monsters.

A Tallahassee, Florida shop that will remove your exhaust and add straight pipe

First of all, thank you for posting the original link to this thread! I decided the day I heard it that it was what I would also do upon the arrival of my camaro (and wife’s- we're already fighting over it, haha). We finally received it yesterday and love it. But I will admit, it sounds like a Cadillac and not a camaro. Hence, why I love this thread! I only joined this forum today, but I and others read it frequently.

Anyway, I would like to inform anyone in the Tallahassee Florida area that Jones Auto Electric and muffler has no problem making custom pipes. They (Dave and Darrell- I think) are some sharp and nice people and seem to love tricking out cars their selves.

If anyone cannot find a local shop, I'd be happy to have the shop duplicate an extra set and ship to you. However, you would have to have someone weld them onto your car.

Another note, the stainless steel exhaust tip will also have to be removed by a welder and added to the custom pipes. Or do not add at all or add aftermarket tips (be sure they are stainless and not chrome plated steel or they will one day rust).

One other important subject, I purchased 1 of 2 camaros Brooks Motors in Thomasville, Al. ordered long ago. The other buyer backed out and as of yesterday it remained available. I drove 5 hours to purchase it from this dealer who I had never met only because they were not price gouging! Sticker price is what they will sell it to you for if you are not planning to flip it. They will make you title it. I do not have all the specs, but from what I did confirm it is a silver ss, v8, sunroof, leather, and had standard non polished rims. Probably a $36-37k msrp. Please tell them I sent you. I do not receive anything back, but this is another way to thank them again for not over charging as the other 30-40 dealers I contacted prior to placing an order. Ask for Evelyn.

We had a custom fully mandrel bent stainless exhaust done on our '69 SS Convertible from headers back that even goes up and over the rear axle for under $300 (not including the hooker mufflers). A good exhaust shop that does mandrel bending will easily be able to bend those two short section of pipes and attach them and have them look even, etc.. I know the shop we go to (I have used him for every vehicle I have owned and my Dad has since he was younger) has REASONABLE prices.. I know I'm lucky to know of a shop that doesn't charge you more than they should but I still feel bad for people paying $200 to do something like this. In my opinion from all the exhaust work I have had done on over half a dozen vehicles, I feel you should be able to have this muffler delete and striaght pipe done at a shop for no more than $100.

So yes, if I had to personally spend $200 to have this done, I would go with 2 mufflers for that price to give it a more refined sound, but since it is a job that should be able to be done for $100, it is definately an inexpensive way to make the car sound a bit better.
$100 max here in AL; different prices are expected around the country.

Still waiting for the inside cabin video!!!!!!

well here is my two cents on the L99 muffler delete. Not good at all!!! Hearing the active fuel management thing way to often.( 8 cylinder to 4 cylinder) Please, need help to get the sound but without that change over sound. Thanks John.

I would say yes with the cats and resonators on the car they are not going to question a muffler being gone and you still have back pressure so I would say it would actually help the performance better that the 900.00 gm mufflers
