I like 'Spike23's idea though. It looks like the pipes from the cats' to the mufflers are close to mandrel-bent, so I bet it wouldn't be hard to just lop the OEM mufflers off and maybe weld some extension pipes (if necessary) and then the mufflers. I'm considering going that way depending on the prices of the CBs that are on the market at the time. I might get rid of any resonators if they happen to show up too and weld in some straight pipes.

'Energyforlife - IMVHO, your ideas on CBs are great. Congrats' on your order but also keep your eyes open on GMPP CBs. If I remember correctly, there will be two, a standard street-legal and off-road-only CB. I'm sure the prices will be similar to what is going to be out there in the aftermarket but you should be able to roll the cost into financing the car and have GMPP's warranty
Yes. Borla is not cheap. And they are somewhat loud, all the time. Tops in quality, though.

I like you resonator eliminator idea. You could have a GOOD exhaust man custum do that well, and reasonably priced.

Here's a couple of more ideas to enhance the possibilities:

The NPP Dual-Mode exhaust on the Corvette is a THRILL! It's like a straight-through shot where the two pipes with the butterfies open. I bought the mod kit, so you have remote control NPP.
You choose when the butterflies in the 2 of 4 tailpipes open.

You can set it open, even at idle.

Closed - all the time or

Regular program - opens around 3800 rpm. Roar!!!!

It roars, screams, primeval stuff, yet cruises the highway quietly.

Some vendor will be cashing in on the Camaro with this. They have kits to add to Corvettes now.

Lastly, more than a few G8 GT owners have modded their exhaust, because it is very quiet to hide the AFM unpleasing note when 4 cyls are off.

They remove the resonators and like it. But not at highway speeds, where you get the dreaded DRONE.

Some G8 GT and Challenger SRT owners have installed cutouts. They have them electrical now.

Nice and quiet --- Holy ...., wide open, just behind the cats, with a sidepipe cutout-only exit. giggle....

Notice the SINGLE muffler? That means there's considerably less sound generated compared to the Mustang's exhaust, which is here:





That was one of my main concerns regarding the new Camaro. I was pretty happy to hear that GM decided to go with a TRUE dual exhaust system, which is why the new Camaro sounds great! Rest assured, the new Camaro is being built the right way.


I am running the Flowmaster American Thunder Super 40 series exhaust on my Mustang, and it sounds badass! I get compliments all the time. The sound is always deep and it gets extremely loud when floored. Thankfully, this series includes the Delta-Flow technology, which keeps interior noise levels surprisingly low. There's a BIG difference in sound when my windows are down versus up, and when I go WOT next to concrete walls (like on a bridge) it sounds like a freight train in heat. My setup includes an off-road H-pipe and the stock headers. There are also X-pipes available, but the sound is compromised a bit. The exhaust had a higher pitched sound with the X-pipe installed, which is not what I wanted.

yeah, but magnaflow and other companies that also do a single muffler for the camaro and sound great.

Flowmaster catbacks for the 3rd/4th gen f-body's are more restrictive than the other catback systems avaiable for the same cars.

It Flowmaster's rubbish crossflow muffler that sucks on F-bodies. Other than not being stainless, I don't have much to complain about Flowmasters, having had two and single chambers on my LT1, I though the sound was okay until the revs' got high. Mustangs with Flowmasters rock though - I don't think that's arguable, LOL! I think it's important not to thing Camaro will sound like a Mustang though - EVER. I've read so many times where an individual asks how to make a Camaro sound like a Mustang and they just don't understand it's impossible. Regardless, I think the exhaust we are getting is going to be a lot better from the factory than the past, and sound great, even before modding
