ARH Long-Tubes Installed on LS3 with Factory Mufflers

We finished the exhaust install early this afternoon. It took a total of 3 hours with some goofing off and painting (we painted the mufflers flat black). I highly recommend painting the mufflers while you are working on this sytem. It really changes the look of this car!

Everything fit extremely well, and the only thing which needed to be disconnected for install is the steering shaft.

Otherwise everything slides into place VERY EASILY!!!

The system is very clean and it does not hang low beneath the car, I am very very satisfied with the design of the ARH system.

The headers definetly wake up this car, and to my suprise, the bottom end torque feels much improved.

I have some pictures of the system prior to install, during install and after. There are also pictures of the factory system next to the ARH system...The ARH is a HUGE improvement!

I have some videos that will be posted later this evening



OK Lets see if this works
This is just one long video....

Nice. The flat black mufflers blend in a lot better with the rear valance.

The group buy has ended, but I can certainly hook you up when you are ready. I am not usually in Whitehall, but could meet at a cruise sometime. Check out the Pittsburgh cruise threads, we could meet somewhere.

I wonder how restrictive the stock muffler is?
ZZCamaro, did you do a video of before and after to see the sound difference with stock muffler?

Thanks.

I can tell you that this is the 1 7/8 Headers with Cats, then 3 inch X-pipe and 3 inch all the way to the rear diff, and it is hooked up to factory mufflers. I know this is what a lot of people wanted to hear!

The retail for this exact setup is 1895. This is what was sold in the group buy which I organized. Although the group purchase has ended, I do still have more available, and can get you hooked up...Obviously, installation is also available!


Hang on...working on Videos!

Congrats on the best headers for your 2010 camaro Mark, told you you would be happy, hopefully we'll see you soon, I have a couple cams and sets of valve springs sitting here on my shelf waiting...

You should take the license plate out of your pics.

I think Headers with stock mufflers sounds perfect as above. Don't change it. Sounds real nice and crisp. I used to have same headers and Corsa on my Z06, and I think stock muffler on the Camaro sounds better with Headers.

Enjoy it!

No offense but that sound leaves much to be desired IMO. Like a raspy, popping, high-pitched tugboat or something LOL.
