Mesa Muffler. Arizona

Just did the Muffler Delete at Mesa Muffler in Mesa Arizona Cost $140 and took about an hour. I was the first 2010 Camaro they have done, so now if anyone else is interested you will be in and out in no time there!

OMG! Now THIS is what the car should sound like! If you think you get allot of looks now, just wait till people notice you from the sound! I have people on the freeway now giving me a thumbs up becasue it sounds so good.

The engine rev's allot smoother and when shifting gears the rpms hardly drop at all now.

And the Decel popping sounds cool IMO...

The stock mufflers are pretty heavy my calibrated hands say they weigh between 20-25lbs each and taking the mufflers out probably added some HP.

Save your money and delete the mufflers...DO IT~!

Had a muffler delete done by Performance Mufflers in Phoenix. Russ did a great job. Only $60. But after a road trip I found there was too much drone. I am now going to have him put some Flowmasters on for me.

The resonators are enough muffler for me, i love the way the car sounds now.

To each his own, but this is really an easy and cheap way for allot of good sound, less weight and some more HP.

The engine runs allot smoother now too which i didn't expect.

The car sounds like it should now, i don't notice any of the drone on the freeway in 6th gear and in 5th it just sounds Deep and Mean.

The popping sound ONLY happens from 2200 to 2000 rpm when coasting down and is really easy to avoid if that type of sound bothers you, i think it sounds awesome and turns heads...

At idle you get the Gurgling v/8 sound which i LOVE!

I wouldn't do this on a V/6 though it will most likely sound really Tinney.

The LS3 V/8 has 2 resonators which are basically miny mufflers like the flowmaster american thunders, they are just further up right behind the Cats.
