Well the guy that was supposed to buy my Jeep is a no show so I guess my headers and stuff will have to wait until I get another buyer.

I wish I had known who to look out for. I was honestly kind of overwhelmed and, I couldn't find a good spot either. I figure I'll show up a little earlier next Saturday. As far as modifications go, I found an exhaust (Borla Atak) I intend to buy very soon. And with my exhaust, I was thinking a resonator delete. Headers also in the not too distant future.

I'm not to sure about a muffler delete. I've not heard that in person.

Well there are a lot of different exhausts to listen to if you make any of the meet ups. Mine was custom by Rowdy at Flanagans on South Port, it cost me $150. Its a little quieter than I wanted but after my longtube headers it should be perfect.

Yep borla atak is a great choice.. With the resonator delete are you auto or manual because if you are auto i have heard alot of people say the afm drone is horrible until you tune or something.

I have the ATAK and I love it but if i was gonna do it again I would probably go with the Axle Back if you are Manual. The resonator on the LS3 is not too bad while the monster they put on the L99 is ridicules. I ahve also heard that the drone with AFM is awful for the automatics.

I can tell you for sure that AFM is AWEFULL! Thankfully I have a tune now and don't have to listen to it!

Not sure how many of us will be out since it is supposed to rain. I don't drive my Camaro in the rain if I don't have to. I use the wife's jeep. On another note, I ordered my headers today and they should be here Friday evening. Does anyone have free time on Saturday to help me install them? Free pizza or burgers and beer for anyone willing to help!

Also if anyone has a jack that I can borrow it would be very much appreciated. I have two jack stands but no jack (except the offroad one for the jeep which won't work). If not I guess I will go buy one but would rather not right now.

I have a jack but it is not low profile and does not get the car up very high. I would recommend the Auto Hobby shop on base. They have several lifts and that will make it much easier. Sorry I can't help but my son is in town and we are busy for the next couple weeks.

I have ramps too. The ones we used to do mike's headers but I think it may be easier to do on base on the lifts.

Clark,

The last headers that I put on were back in '82 when I put them on my '79 Z. I bet it's harder on these high tech Camaros... Sadly, my Saturday is all full of events already, or I'd look, listen and pass wrenches. I have a little jack that might work, too.

Good luck!

Tara
