I can see you cut out the big can mufflers but did you use the tips from the stock mufflers?

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.
so you did use the stock tips from the stock mufflers, man it seem you might get a shop to do the for $50 to $100. too pieces of pipe to you stock tip pretty cool

I do not think a smog shop would even question it, and besides the cats are there and for those of you that are worried save the mufflers you can always weld them on, I think this is the first mod I am making when I get mine

WARRANTY ISSUES

Deleting your mufflers will give the dealer something to point at if you ever have drive train problems so understand I have a copy of the dealer dvd for training on the camaro and gm makes it clear that any mod other than a gm would be a concern for warranty. in addition in a crash the removal of the factory mufflers could put you at risk of major lost if anyone is injured

ok I can see where gm and make a issue with the warrant which of course deleting a muffler isnt going to me the cause of a engine, or tranny failure, not sure why it would make a difference in a crash, if you keep to old mufflers throw em back on before you take the car in for the repair, why would it make a difference in a crash?

I very much like the sound that this creates, this will most likely be my first mod when I get my car. I'll probably take her right from the dealership to the muffler shop .

There's a certain amount of backpressure required to maintain tq levels on the low-end, wouldn't that be lost here?

Don't get me wrong, its a quick, easy, and inexpensive mod for sound and weight, but my first point is the only concern here.

I removed my axle back S type borla exhaust while I wait for the touring ones and I am running without mufflers. I swear i feel I have some more torque in her.... it sounds great...but a little too loud for me.

Did you ever find a solution for the L99 engine? I am at the point where I want to make the change & muffler less is the right price.

I did it too

I had my muffler delete done today and have to agree with the rest. I LOVE IT!

Just the right sound with a little crackle at the end like the old days........

I have already had two different people pull up next to me and tell me the car "sounds wicked" and "what do you have in that thing...it sounds bad a$$"

They used the 409 SS pipe with SS weld. Sweet job. Thanks to all on here for the info that helped me make this decision!!

It won't affect computer -- nothing back past the cats are monitored. LS/LT/SS cars all have true duel exhaust w/ an X-pipe. And yes, the cats (2 per bank, 4 total) do muffle the car a bit.
w/ an X-pipe.. - its a H pipe factory ..dual exhaust

SLP has pipes that clamp in place of the mufflers. I think they retail for $100.00.

all I saw on the SLP site was the loudmouth for $400 which is crazy imo.

Oh just found http://www.slponline.com/view_product.asp?P=30222

Anyone use these yet?

Nevermind again, these only delete the SLP exhaust muffler. I am looking for a kit for stock.
