Camaro SS RS Straight Pipes --IN CAR VIDEO

Here's this video, as promised. Mods, if this could somehow be put into my other thread, that'd be great. I just couldn't get the video into the first post. I spent a little more time editing, so I hope you like it. Once again, shot with a simple hand held camera, edited on iMovie on the Mac, so it's not perfect or anything.

I hope this video shows:
1. That inside the car with the windows up, the car isn't loud or annoying.
2. With the music on, the exhaust is barely even audible.
3. While cruising, there is NO drone, and it sounds stock.

Out of car video here: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=32468

Great job, good representation of many different driving ranges and loads. I'm defintely doing this to mine. It is no louder than my CTS-V with a Corsa Catback.
Do they let you guys legally drive without shoes....? They nail us for that here in PA..... I like to kick mine off on a long drive, but keep them close in case I get pulled over.
Thanks for doing the work on this for us all.

I've never heard of not being able to drive shoeless haha. I usually wear sandals during the summer, and I'm definitely not driving with those on. I love driving barefoot as you get a better "feel" for the pedals haha. As far as I know, it's not a problem in TX...?

And it's no problem. I'm glad to have contributed something useful to the forum that's taught me so much, and will continue to teach me.

FYI - there's no law in PA stating you can't drive bare foot. This is one thing I learned in my Driver's Ed class way back when.

Great video... Trying to decide if i am going this route still

Dang, I looked it up and you are right. There are a few states that do not allow it, but PA is not one. I was told that by a cop once and had assumed it to be true. Now I don't have to try to keep my shoes tucked up under the seat for easy access This post just keeps getting better

dont know what he did but i ordered the SLP loud mouth, which cuts out the muffler. 400 bucks. I went to a shop they could do it for 200 or so, but it would have been aluminum instead of stainless.

Unfortunately that comes out to $600. I spent only $150, and you can get stainless or aluminum, you'd just have to talk with the shop you're getting it done at. Although, your car will still technically have mufflers, so you wouldn't get in trouble for that.

Great vid man....really nice!!

Love the ending too...you should use that for all your videos from now on!

I've had so many comments on the sound of my car since I did this...all positive! The popping sound on mine has slowed some and even sounds deeper now than when first done (been about a month or longer now)...didn't sound like yours?

Also...I have stainless pipes, all mandrel bent (MagnaFlow) and paid $125 for mine installed!

Well worth it!

Haha yeah, I may have to do that. I just threw it in there as a spur of the moment type thing cause I liked the sound. Our popping probably sounds the same, I just don't have a super high quality camera to perfectly capture the sounds unfortunately. I was just using a little handheld camera, not a real video camera.

yeah man, I love me some alter bridge. A friend of mine introduced me to them about a year ago and I love their sound. That's awesome that you helped run that site, I'll have to check it out.
