Are Flowmaster exhaust available yet?

Hope it's not a repost, but I wanted to know if flowmaster had any systems ready for the ss. If so I am looking for that deep rumble sound but at the same time doesn't sound sloppy. Which series of the flowmaster do you guys recommend?

Yeah some guy has already had them on.

Check this link.

I had 40 series on my 92 Z28 and loved them. That could be a start for you. The 50 series also sound very nice

I am interested in this too!! I keep hearing that the Flowmaster 44 series (I think) is supposed to be awesome. When I talked to a local exhaust shop at length about the car and such, they were leading me in that direction as to what they would recommend. They did really like the SLP solution too but said they were expensive in their opinion. Sorry this does not help much but I keep waiting for someone to post sound clips of the Flowmasters on the SS. The only clip I see on this forum really sucks because of the audio on the camera that was used. When the guy revs it, all you hear is distorted crackle. What is strange is that several fellow Camaro5 people commented on how awesome it sounded. I guess it was...if distortion and crackle is considered awesome. But that was the fault of the camera. Some of the LS3 Flowmaster videos on Youtube of the C6 Corvette sound sweet though. Subscribing to this thread to see feedback...

You can get Flowmaster mufflers and put them on - but the full cat-back kit won't be ready for a little bit yet - I have been in contact with them regarding their full system - it is in progress and should be available soon is the last response I got.

Is it true that the "X" pipe configuration is where the raspy exhaust sound comes from when revving? I don't like raspy which is why I was going to keep the "H" pipe from the factory and just do axle back. Is this correct or am I way off?

By adding just the mufflers, will that give me any added hp and the deep sound?

Kinda and yes. You will have a slight HP gain with replacing the stock mufflers, and you will definitely get a better sound - maybe not as good as a cat-back system, but better than stock. I'd look to see if you can find the thread where someone put flowmaster mufflers on - I think they had a video.

I agree, there's another video of the same car doing a drive-by and you can barely hear the exhaust note, not even worth posting.

According to the Flowmaster web site, the Flowmaster 40s were designed to be quiet at idle and inside the cabin. The Flowmaster 44s, however, are the most aggressive and loudest muffler they make. Unfortunately, there's not many sound clips around, if any, for the 2010 Camaro. There are some great sounding clips of the '06 GTO on youtube though. Granted they have the LS2 engine but that's pretty close right? Just do a search on Youtube for GTO Flowmaster Super 44 and have a listen. I am seriously considering getting the flat black Super 44s along with a resonator delete when I take mine to the exhaust shop.

The only hesitation I have is the resonator delete. Guess that's not much different than a Cat-back system except it will only be 2.5 inch factor pipes with an H-pipe config. That should sound pretty sick right? Should be a hell of a lot cheaper too, right?

EDIT: Just found C6 with Flowmasters. Think they are Super 44s. Just serach YT for C6 Flowmaster Exhaust. Sweet. Here's my favorite:
but I still think this is an LS2 engine.

Hey Edrock, looks like we think alike. We have the same car ordered, and I have Super 44's waiting, will pair with ARH headers as soon as I get them. My car is here waiting for a truck. As soon as I get it all together I will try to post a sound clip. I have a 3 inch 44 on my hotrod truck, sounds great, deep rumble.

Hey Edrock, I think I will go the same route. I am waiting for the exhaust shop to hit me back with price. I know the mufflers are priced at $79, how much do you guys think it would cost to delete the resonators and to install the mufflers. Also does it matter if the mufflers inlet/outlet is off centered, centered etc. Sorry for all
the questions but I'm a newb when it comes to
this exhaust stuff and I want to
make sure it's done right.

I went with offset in/ center out, but wont' know for sure till I can test fit it. Probably $200 or so to delete resonators and swap mufflers. Good luck.

I'm thinking about doing 40 series in line with the stock pipes (I've got a couple of 2.5" center in/out 40's that I'm not using at the moment).

I'll probably eliminate the stock resonators, leave the H-pipe, and plan on some mid-length headers down the road.

The only difference between this setup and the exhaust on my 67 LS1 swap is the Cats. I'm sure they will quiet it down a little bit, but that LS1 sounded down right evil without Cats.

I'm thinking more in the $300 range for the muffler swap. Don't know about the resonator delete. I am getting my work done at Merican Muffler here in Greensboro, NC and when I talked to him last, he has not done a 2010 Camaro yet and I might be the first one. He was very helpful and recommended the Super 44s and threw out a ballpark figure in the $300 range stipulating that it all depends on what it will take to do the job and which muffler would fit etc. Did not ask about resonator delete. Guess it is legal right? I know you can't touch the CATs but resonators are fair game I would think. With the res. delete, I'm guessing more like $400. Even so, that is a hell of a lot cheaper than any CAT-back system out there...and I like the "H" pipe config over the "X" pipe config anyway. The exaust system from GM is already pretty sweet...I just want to enhance it a bit.

I'm taking mine to Scotties Muffler Shop
here in Winston Salem, it will be his first 2010 he had done. He told me he can get the the 44's for 150 a piece plus $25 a piece to swap them out. I ordering mufflers fr summit racing for $79 a piece. Also my exhaust guy said he had to take a look at my system b4. He could give me estimate for the resonators delete.

The dual Flowmaster car sounds pretty much like the LM2.

I kinda wanna duplicate this sound.

Oh yeah! I've seen this before. This is my all time favortie!!! The only problem for me is that this car has Long Tube headers, high flow CATs and such....mods I'm not willing to do. Not that I am some "Dudley Do Right" kind of guy but just don't want to worry about not passing inspection and such, then having to pay fines and the money to become legal again to pass inspection. Yeah, I might get away with it but to me, it is not worth the hassle. That GTO sure is a healthy helping of ear-candy though...

You sure it has LT's? The owner doesn't specify:

"It's a 2005 GTO, manual, 6.0L LS2. Exhaust setup is Dynomax headers and cats, 2.5" custom plumbing w/an H-pipe and regular flowmaster 40s. Those were the only mods on the car at the time, made about 350 at the wheels...after an A/F tune, car makes about 390 at the wheels."

Well, good point. Gues I should not assume that "Dynomax headers" automatically mean LTs...
