Sweet Surprise...

So I went to pronto muffler shop in Plano TX to get my big resonator deleted and put in xpipe to get some better performance on the out side after the CAI. He came and got me to show me something.. I walk under the car and low and behold I have no big resonator box.. Say whaatt... apparently the 2ss and up get it but my 1ss gets straight pipes (with itsy bitsy resonators).. so he said he could delete the big mufflers and it would still be legal as the little resonators are little mufflers in Texas.. 133 bucks later and I am happy. Feels more responsive and sounds awesome to boot.

Only automatic SS cars (1SS and 2SS) get the big center resonator. That's because they come with the L99 V8 with DoD. Manual 1SS and 2SS cars come with the LS3 V8 and do not have the big resonator.

Not too loud in 5th or 6th unless I get on it. No one is turning their heads anyway. A little drone at 60 in 4th.

Which shop did you use, Sean? Need an appointment? How long did it take? Sorry for the interview...considering doing this to mine.

Thanks!

Just saw it was Pronto in Plano.

There is no drone with straight pipe. And with the factory exhaust manifolds and cats, the sound isn't that loud at all. It actually sounds pretty good. I drove with the same setup in my LS3 car for a while.

After headers and no cats, straight pipe is way too loud and it takes on a really bad sounding tone.

Man i loved driving this around this weekend.. that soft roar and deep chop when slowing down is addicting. Met a few neighbors who waved me down when mowing the lawns and when stopping at garage sales. Not one seems annoyed or upset. I even passed a lady in a stroller and was worried I might wake her kid so I just coasted past her. Later she said love your car when I was in my driveway detailing it. Great weekend.
