The car LOOKS and SOUNDS GREAT! The best of both worlds! Any noticed changes in resonance, or in the AFM?

so all you did was cut the mufflers off and added straight pipes from there. Is is legal to run without mufflers in Texas, do you know? I would like to do this to our v-6. Who is selling the straight pipes?
Yes, I had the mufflers cut out and the tips cut off the mufflers. From there, the shop just welded in pipes, bent to fit, and welded the tips onto the pipes. Looks pretty stock from the back end...minus the huge mufflers hanging down of course. I believe you can get the piping from just about any shop.

It's not legal to do this in Texas, but my inspection is good for two years, and I'll figure out what to do from there when the time comes. You can always find a shop that'll let you by

Would this void any type of warranty at all? And is there any kind of legality issue with this in Michigan? I don't know much about that stuff.
Like "I am Legend" said, the muffler warranty would obviously be voided, but who needs a muffler warranty when you don't have mufflers? My dealership said as long as I don't mess with emissions, the warranty is fine.

resonance, as in drone? if so, there isn't any. There isn't even any rpm you can drive at that makes it sound annoying at all, and if you turn the music up to about 17 or 20 with the windows up, you don't even hear the exhaust anymore. It's THAT quiet inside the car. And sorry for my ignorance...but AFM?

no idea...but I can tell you it won't sound quite like that haha...sorry to be no help.



Thanks to you all for the compliments. I'm loving the car! Now I need to get a video of me accelerating under a bridge....it sounds like a racecar! Plus, when slowing down, the car gurgles like mad through the rpm range of about 2500 down to 1500. It sounds wonderful. If you don't like that though, a tune can fix it...but who'd want to fix that?

Could you do me a favour?

Could you record the sound with the camera from the inside of your car with the windows closed?

I would consider doing a mod like this but I really love how quiet the Camaro is on the inside and would hate to give that up.

ah yes, sorry. Well I have a standard, so I can't say if this would change anything or not.

Yes, I'll do it this evening. I really want to get a video inside with the camera on the tach, but I'm not going to hold it and I don't have any kind of mount. I'll just get a friend to ride with me, maybe in the back behind the passenger and see how that works. I'll try to get all kinds of situations: cruising in 6th, accelerating, windows up, windows down, music on, etc.

I like and am pondering right now

I was waiting for someone to run up and grab the camera off the pavement while you took off.

DON'T DO IT on a V6....search the threads. Someone already tried on the V6 a while back an it sounded horrible. Even the OP that did it basically said he regretted it. Save your $$$ and buy an SLP, MagnaFlow, Borla, or something similar.

I don't know if they are making the SLP for the V6 yet but on the V8 you can buy the LoudMouth II for about $560. To cut off your muffleres and weld in new pipes it's going to cost you anywhere between $200 - $300. Save a little more and change the sound with mufflers on the V6.
