Looks very similar to the GMPP "off road" version. But the exhaust tips are different.

They are probably identical, borla makes the GM ones too. i love the bowtie tips but you can get the borla for at least a $100 less, most of the time. Glad they look good though because the borla s type is what I ordered to go with my ARH longtubes.

So how is the install? How long did it take you? I am assuming you just cut off the factory mufflers where the pipe is straight for the borla to fit on?

Does the instructions tell you where to cut? Thanks!

Yes, the instruction will tell you exactly where to cut.
You have to cut the stock exhaust just over 1'' from the muffler weld. Then you carefully pull the stock mufflers and tips out (thats the hardest part because of the rubber hangers). Then you put the new mufflers and tips on. The kit will come with clamps that connect the new axle back with the stock exhaust.

I paid $40.00 to have a local transmission/exhaust shop install my GMPP axle back - which installs the same way. They took their time and did a very careful job not to scratch the tips or car. It took them about 35 minutes.

It sounds very very similar to my GMPP "off road" axle back. So I'm pretty sure they're using the same mufflers.
Its got a low tone that's fairly aggressive, but not too loud.

i rolled my car up on jack stands and cut them myself.....took me about 30 minutes.. the most important thing is get a new metal blade for the sawzall...I started with a blade and could not cut it, ended up going to ace hardware and picking up new blades, then it cut it like butter...

Is there any additional piping needed for this to hook up to the ARH system?

When you get them with the ARH please post up some sound clips. I would love to hear that combo.

The Borla system sounds great to me. I think I'm now sold on those instead of SLP LM II.

Now I just need to get my hands on a new Camaro.

No prob, I mean I'm probably 3 to 4 weeks away assuming my car gets built this week but no problem once i have it.
