Will Muffler Delete Affect Performance?

I have a 2013 2LS. I wanted to find regular mufflers but all I can find are 1000 dollar exhaust systems. Will a muffler delete affect my camaro's performance at all? Positive or negatively?

Exhaust does not affect performance, just sound. Now if you go headers/full exhaust you will start seeing gains.

Muffler delete won't have any impact.

It will make your car slower, because you won't want to hear a v6 through straight pipes at high rpms.

Don't do a muffler delete on a V6.

MRT 2.0 for $550

A muffler delete does not sound very good on the V6. The MRT v2 slick rick mentioned is by far the most popular option.

Agree with the above the MRT 2 setup is real nice. I went glasspacks with mine prolly gonna switch those out the Resonated X-Pipe was a no brainer.

Muffler delete reduces backpressure.

Reduction in backpressure reduces low end torque, but increases performance at higher speeds (more specifically, higher RPM's).

Sounds great though (at least on my SS) and the loss is only technical. It's not like it will suddenly feel like your driving a 60's Lincoln Continental.

I decided I won't get a muffler delete done. I will just buy the mrt 2.0.
Thanks for all the help
