Finally..

After weeks of looking and research, this pic (http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showpo...3&postcount=12) has caused me to settle on getting a cat back exhaust. I think I am going with the Mach-XC Cat Back Exhaust Kit from Solo Performance. Since I have an L99, I already picked up a Range to get rid of the AFM noise.

Now, I just have to wait to see when I am getting my car back from the dealer and I can get this ordered and set up an install time. Wish I could do this myself, but I don't have any way to get under the car.

A jack and a set of stands isnt too expensive and will come in handy later on down the line. I just bought a set for my scoop install. Congrats on your choice OP, I am sure you will love it!!

Ramps, just back the car up on them. That's how I did my catback.

If I go with ramps, what height? As you can see from my sig, I already have a sloped driveway, and I dont want to kill my nose with the gfx kit.

Just get the standard rhino ramps. As for the front, just use a couple of 2x4 to back onto, that will clear you.

Don't waste your money on ramps, go buy 2 2X10's and cut them in a 4 1/2 ft section, 3 1/2 ft section and then you have the 2ft section left over. then just stack them on top of eachother and screw them together starting at the bottom portion. I also picked up a 2x4 and cut to make a wheel stop so I wouldn't drive off. It cost me $17 total.

That's actually the best idea yet. I feel better being under the car with this type of set up rather than jack stands, but you use what you have.

That gives about 6" clearance. Is that good enough to get to the cats to unbolt the exhaust? (please note, I last had ramps almost 12 years ago, and don't remember)

No way becasue you'd be ramping up the back. You may be able to unbolt them, but lining up / adjusting the new pipes will be impossible. It was tight on the ramps.
