NOWEEDS EXHAUST DIVERTERS

As featured on homepage.

Ive been reading the threads at CAMARO5 for what seems like years now.... and its cool to see the excitement level continue to grow around this amazing car. Im a new poster but a LONG time reader.

We manufacture stainless exhaust diverters for the musclecar/hotrod industry and are going to produce a piece for the new Camaro.

We are looking at 2 locations for our bolt in system. 1st being right beside the transmission before the X-pipe and the second just before the irs assembly- both with possibility of options for side exit pipes if space allows. I'm hoping to sneak a closer peek at SEMA in November with a camera and tape measure, however we may be subject to waiting for one to hit the street to finalize design.

I personally would like to extend an offer to the first camaro5 forum member/ camaro/owner (would have to be an SS for our inital product release) who could get to South Dakota. We would offer a free install and free product in exchange for the valuable information we gather for our final part numbers.


You guys and gals are all so cool in this forum its fun to finally lay down a post or 2 and be a part of it.

Thanks!

UPDATED WITH VIDEO AND FOLLOWING INFO:

This is the installation and dyno testing of the stainless steel bolt in NOWEEDS.NET electronic exhaust diverter system for the 2010 Camaro SS LS3. After several dyno pulls we found consistent gains of 18hp and 27trq at the rear wheels while still keeping the factory cats, resonators, H-pipe, mufflers, and SOUND intact. This was filmed at the Dakota Digital Research and Development Lab in Sioux Falls, SD.

Are you talking about a cut-out, or a whole new exhaust system?

This is an exhaust diverter system which maintains 100% factory exhaust and is a bolt in/removable system. It actually isn't a typical "cutout" it is diverter which goes from 100% factory tone to full 100% open header or infinite/programmable adjustment in the middle. It would take 4 "cutouts" and a rediculous amount of room to achive the same effect.

Ive asked a few times here already, but maybe I can finally get a straight answer here. Is the V8 going to have an X-pipe? I know the pre-production V6 showed one, but the Indy show had a single tubed Cat-Back displayed on the upgrade picture. Please no Y-pipe...

So your system will have the stock exhaust out the back end, but flick a switch and your running straight header exhaust out side exits?

Exactly. Or pick a level in the middle if wide open is too loud inside the car for conversation, neighbors, etc...

Looks like its all separate back to the resonators on the white SS on the transporter, then appears to still be separate back from there - there is just one blind spot above this pan thats the unknown. There could be a X pipe in this location.





Thanks to Black5thgen for posting these pics back in August

We will be in the $860 range if this is 3" diameter exhaust. $840 if it is 2.5". System includes everything seen in the picture above, and leaves factory system in tact including cats and mufflers.

How much does all of that weigh? and how durable are the motors?

The infamous 4th Gen Electric cutouts had a tendency to fail after driving on the streets (water/dirt) and having the actuator switch held too long after the butterfly made contact with the flange...

Good questions.

Each unit weighs 7lbs plus clamps/wiring. We use a 200lb capacity sealed screw drive linear actuator that holds its position at any stopping point during its travel. The actuator also has internal limit switches @ fully extended and retracted positions so there is no possibility of end of travel over torque or burn out. We have been doing this since 2000 and have yet to have an actuator fail due to heat, moisture, cold, ice, dirt, etc.. I'm not saying it won't fail but if it does, we will take care of it. We purposely went overkill on the actuator for durability and ease of use

The extents of our installs go from Canada and New York to southern California- so we feel they are tested.

The measurements I have seen are 3" pipes for the V6 and 3.75 inch pipes for the V8.. Might want to wait until measurements can be made...

So you're trying to sell a bolt-in electronic cutout.

These are some pics from our first gen diverters - they are now much tighter, smaller, and stainless with updated electronics. Thanks for the compliment!
