Did the fuse pull today. Took about 10 mins. No rips or tears. Now it sounds like the 60's big block muscle cars sounded all the time ...you gotta love it ! Drone not a factor.

I would add to the instructns to use a trim tool to remove the top passngr side rivet, and after unscrewing the cargo net covers from the trunk trim ,to pull the trunk trim panel down a little & out on the passngr side to enable pulling out the passngr side carpet panel from behind it to give you clear access to the fuse box. Thanks again.

I don't think so as i beleive it is only an option for manual V8s. The option code would appear as NPP on your sticker.

No problem! I've learned many things on the camaro5.com forum and this is the easiest way I could do to give back. I searched around once I had the NPP on my vehicle and couldn't find any answers so I created this for anyone that had the same issue. Glad everything worked out!

I'll add the trim tool as a tool you can use, I never used one/dont own one so I didn't include it. Thanks again!

Unfortunately, the only model to feature the NPP exhaust in 2012 was the ZL1. It comes in the MY2013 models as an option but is stock for 2012+ ZL1s

Sorry for the noob question, but pulling this fuze will make my exhaust sound better? Wth!! I need to do this hahahaha. I have a 2010 SS 6 Speed, so this would benefit my exhaust sound?

NO The fuse pull is only for SSs with the NPP exhaust option ( which only became avaialabe in the '13 SS models).

Your car does not have the NPP exhaust. Don't know if it even has a fuse in the same postion in the fuse box ...even if it does it wouldn't be for the exhaust so by pulling it
it would only result in negative consequences.

Trim Tool for fuse pull

These are a must have when removing body trim. Did the F8 exhaust fuse pull and these saved the day.
