Exhaust Systems

Have any RI Camaro5 members changed their Exhaust on the SS yet, I am so undecided on which system to get and I would like to hear one in person, I am leaning towards the Borla Aggressive or the Flowmaster American Thunder system.

I am happy with my magnaflow street series axle backs. I also went with ARH long tube headers with cats and Xpipe. Be advised if you upgrade the swaybars too you may have an issue with the rear sway bracket. (passenger side)

Only recommendation I have is to stay far away from Flowmaster.They are loud but ussually make less hp than stock.

I've heard the same thing. They do sound really nice though.

I've purchased a set of Magnaflow street axlebacks for my L99 SS. There still in the box in my garage. I'm trying to find a way to install them without getting a DROAN sound while in 4 cyl mode. I don't want to do a tune to eliminate the AFM for warranty reasons. I may have to live with my stock exhaust and sell the Magnaflows. Or if anyone has found an answer to the bad AFM sound with aftermarket exhaust and the automatic please let me know.

myold88, I did a custom cat-back set-up (x-pipe, 2.5" tubing, oval Magnaflow mufflers) and I have no AFM drone! A fellow member rode in my car and said "...you can't even hear the AFM..."

But, that's just my experience. You will hear a bit of rumble inside the car, but it's a good kind of rumble! It isn't loud to the point where you want to take off the system. Sorry, I have no video clips because I don't have a good enough camera to capture the sound...the only clip I have is of my car getting dynoed (listen with headphones if you can to get a better sound):

Iwantone2: Thanks. So many here say the droan is very bad so I'm not sure what to do.
I fully insulated my rear trunk compartment so I hope that's enough. I guess I could try my Magnaflows out and go back to stock if necessary.
