Thumbs up NOWEEDS Diverter system for AMERICAN RACING 3" exhaust

This is our second diverter thread as i feel this product is different enough to warrant a totally different discussion than our stock setup. Thanks Stefano Bimbi with Nickey Chicago for getting us hooked up with Nick Filippides at American Racing and to Nick for sending us out the pipes. Also to Casey Wegner at Wegner Motorsports who is installing on the Nickey Stage III project.

Rick Bottom with Rick Bottom Designs is another dude we are fortunate to work with as he is building a sick Camaro for GM's SEMA 2009 Booth and using this system.

Lastly, (i apologize this sounds like a damn acceptance speech at the Oscars' but these guys need mention) Randy Haron who pulled in a ton of resources and personally spent a lot of his own time to help us fine tune the final design. He supplied us with the pictures of the install on his very nicely modded Camaro posted below.

This is a BOLT IN system for the American Racing 3 inch exhaust.











This picture was taken before some modifications were made but is very similar.

Just for clarification...
BOLT ON meaning no cutting as is required on the stock piping, correct?
If true, that's just another added advantage to having the NOWEEDS 3" diverters with the AMR headers - awesome sound, tons of bang for the buck HP, and super easy installation.

I just called my local performance shop for an install quote and he just threw in a warning towards me about risking a voided warranty. Said there always is a possible Federal emissions issue relating to the headers being connected to the engine. He was all for giving me a quote, but said he would have to see everything in person. I told him they installed ceramic headers on my 07 Suburban so why the huge warranty scare. He said he's just throwing it at me so I know. I always hate hearing about these possibilities!

Those pics look beautiful! Just trying to help your imagination since you can't see them. Very nice looking setup! ;-) Can someone get me a towel?

Hey thanks for the compliments on the diverters- We feel its the best solution for this application.

You still need to make cuts like the factory system but the system is bolted in as opposed to being welded in. That in itself makes a huge difference. Basically we are replacing a lap joint that is already there with the diverter. we also added the custom turnout which not only redirects exhaust down and out but maintains ground clearance and stays within the factory heat shields as well. Not to mention the wicked cut on it looks kinda evil too... Form and function were maintained.

Thanks again.

Cutting wasn't a big deal since that's what muffler/exhaust shops do all day long. Was really just curious for those who would install these on their own.
I noticed it installed under the heat shield. I had to go look up another pic to see if that was a normal heat shield since it was so stinkin' clean. Saw that it was. That yellow SS must have been brand spankin' new.
I noticed the tear-drop shape of the diverter outlet. Was wicked cool with the sharp point on it!
I can't wait for availability! Sound clip or video would be icing on the cake.
Thanks a ton for the quick and thorough communication. Very much appreciated!

The weight isn't an issue.

The sound is great I tried to take some video with my iphone but it didn't work out so well. I will work on a clip.

The best thing is when you hit the button and you see the face of the person sitting next to you.....
IT'S AMAZING

LOL

Is NOWEEDS going to be getting together with ARH to sell a long tube header/diverter kit? If not how much is the bolt on Diverter kit?

Our plan is to sell this direct to you guys- the customer- but we will let you know if anything changes as far as a kit/package goes.

Pricing for the system for the American Racing Exhaust will be less than our standard Camaro system @ 895.00 less the camaro5 discounts.
