2013 Camaro SS stock exhaust no cats

Finally got my cats taken off and my JBA midpipes installed.

Thanks to Juiced Motorsports I'm on my way to having a sweet sounding ride.



You'll hear some hissing on start up, I didn't have the band clamps tightened and i still had an exhaust leak at the manifold too

Cool. Everyone thinks its the "cans" that make the stock exhaust so quiet, when it's actually the cats and resonators. Ditch those and the factory exhaust comes alive!

You'll likely get a CEL soon without a tune anyhow.

Well, I have o2 extenders installed and so far they're keeping me from getting a CEL. Only time will tell. I don't think they're working well seeing as I can smell as if its running very lean. Though it could just be because I don't have the cats on and it's just the smell. Not sure. I know one thing, I gotta get my manifold bolt tightened, as I can smell the exhaust leak from inside the car when I turn on the heater.

I can't wait man! It comes Tuesday. Hopefully I'm off Wednesday and will get it installed instead of waiting for the weekend. I'm going to order my tuner tonight when I get home.

Ordered my SCT Tuner tonight from JRE. Hopefully I'll receive it Wednesday or so, I got the Second day shipping. I get my cat back Tuesday and will have it installed asap. I can't wait!

Also, Removing the cats have made this thing feel like a whole new car!

Take the cats off and you're violating FEDERAL LAW. The car cannot be sold or traded legally until the cats are put back on. So you better save those cats!

Actually...it's not. It's not legal for a manufacturer to sell it. Person to person it doesn't matter. It may be a violation to drive it on the road in some states without the cats..

I just looked it up the other night in another thread, yes it is illegal for anyone to remove them. I will find it again and repost if you want.

True, it's completely legal to remove the cats and use the vehicle off road. One good thing is there is no emissions testing in Florida.

You better read the entire document I posted the link to. It's a federal law.
