Stock exhaust diagram?

Is there a diagram of the 2010 camaro's exhaust? I'd like to do an exhaust upgrade, possibly a x-pipe and loudmouth II axle back and would like to get an idea of what I am looking at. I am a automotive novice so I will take all the help I can get.

This is for an SS2.

Thanks

Those are catalytic converters near the manifolds, and the other is a resonator I believe.

X-pipe is the short blue piece between the yellow and purple.

What I am looking to do is beef up the sound of the car (SS2 R/S wM6S). Like I said I am trying to learn as much as possible, from what I can gather I think I want the Borla axle back s-type. Does adding a X-pipe change the sound enough to merit installing it? Or if all I am looking is a more aggressive sound should I just stick with the axle back and call it a day. I am not looking for a performance increase, and am not looking to do anything that would require it to be retuned.

The orange components are resonators, the blue component is the H-pipe, and the red components are the cats. An X-pipe will replace the H-pipe on the LS3 and that hideous resonator on the L99.

I'm on the same train as the OP. I am getting the SLP Loudmouth II and an x-pipe to replace that god awful resonator hiding the H-pipe.

I would suggest the LM II and the X-pipe, that will basically create an axle-back kit, and will definetly help the sound....a LM kit would be even more aggressive, but not as deep of a sound.

Let me know if you have any questions I would be happy to help, and I can get you some good prices.

I just had my exhaust done today and all I did was remove the ugly mufflers and put in a pipe bend to match up to my exhaust ports on the rear and reweld my original tips back on it sounds great not to loud and no drone sounds can still listen to the radio at level 15 with no problem and it's a cheap fix about 150.00

Do you have stock manifolds and cats or headers?

Any changes from the cat back will not require a tune/re-tune.

If you change out the stock resonator, you will change the sound. The amount of sound change from adding any kind of pipe is completely subjective. "Enough" for you may not be "enough" for me and vice-versa.

A stock muffler delete will increase volume but not change the tone. An aftermarket muffler will change the tone and soften the volume depending on what you have installed in front of it.
