GM Performance Exhaust upgrade?

Anyone know how much of sound difference it makes on the L99?

I noticed GM also has two of these on their site for two different prices.

Is it worth it?


Sorry im pretty sure this has been talked about but I cant find it.

Thanks guys and gals

I just talked to my dealer today and they wanted $1200 installed for the axle-back exhaust upgrade.

I just finished talking to a Borla exhaust installer/dealer- they will install the entire catback exhaust system for $1500. (Part # 140280).

Sold. Waiting for a appointment call back now.

You might as well pay a tad more and just get a set of American Racing Headers installed and keep the stock catback. It sounds AWESOME IMO.

Well, anyone who is paying $1200 for the GMPP exhaust is getting taken to the cleaners. It's $800 at best installed... I know, I have it. As for the sound, I'd love to know who said it sounded like stock... they're smokin some good stuff. Go to the post http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=30980
It's my car and I think you'll agree it's not stock. Heck, just the 4.5" double walled tips alone are worth a couple hundred bucks. As far as SLP goes... the axleback is nothing more than a piece of pipe (no baffles) with hangers... Sounds good at start-up but at cruise, well, if you like drone you'll love it... not really worth $450 IMO. I'm not selling GM stuff but you should know the real deal before you make a decision.

Have the GMPP exhuast, paid $810 at dealer but $150 to install. I have a 2SSRS with the L99, had it installed at the place i had it dyno tuned for both $450. Sounds good but not to loud, had it done at 600 miles drivers side stock tin can or muffler was half full of water. Looks and sounds much better and now after two oil changes and a 2700 mile trip it runs like a raped ape.

+1 Same thing here impalajohn.. except for the price. Mine was $810 installed.

Imagine so. Any engine that breathes better is going to go up in power but I would say it's negligible. But I LOVE the sound.

Got my L99 back yesterday with gmpp exhaust (without tips), it is definitely louder. Has a great growl with little increase in noise in the cabin. I paid $800 installed.

I've got the GMPP "off road" and its actually pretty aggressive. It's not overly loud but its got some bark to it. It might actually be too loud for my tastes when I add long tube headers. I'll have to wait and see.
I got lucky and got mine about a month ago and paid $724.00 total with shipping in handling.
I got it installed for $40.00 at a local exhaust shop.

So total investment with installation $764.00

Wish I could put the "off road" on mine, but it says not for GFX...ordered the one for GFX...we'll see. Dealer is trying to get me to pay the $750 PLUS installation! I said no thanks if that's the case. I assume the option is the price with install...

So, is the GMPP system a Cat-Back or Axle back?

Thanks,
Michael J.

I installed the STREET version today on my LS3. Car got louder for SURE!! Any louder I might have went back to stock. I'll try to get a vid done tomorrow.
