Technicly speaking the main reason to dump exhaust in the back is to prevent excessive fumes from entering the cabin. Legaly all exhaust must clear the cabin.

A turndown is used in most cases to direct the exhaust to the sides or back based on location of diverter. Directing heat and fumes toward the edges of the car is normally how its installed and should be kept in mind to keep it safe.

More than likely the diverter is going to be right at the front edge of the back tire and the loud open exhaust will be directed either straight back or turned down and out at 45 degree angles. This is approximately where we install on the C5 Z06 and it works amazing back there.

But won't that put the valve behind the cats?

Ok, that makes sense. So then the obvious question is, in your experience (or anyone else's), do you notice a strong exhaust smell when the diverter is engaged?

Sorry for all the questions, but I would definitely consider something like this in the new Camaro.

Partial open will keep things civilized. We have done exactly what you are talking about before though and it does work that way too.

To keep weight down and keep it simple i would try without first- then add second muffler if it 'needs' it. It really is adjustable though. Like a volume knob you can keep bumping it.

It does, but sometimes with engineered floor pans we have limited options. With the 5gallon bucket sized mufflers on this car - im guessing alot of sound is getting back there that they are trying to supress. The cats and resonators are usually very high flowing on these hp cars.

If there is room though- the front is better

Only on a race car because they dont have insulation or weatherstripping and often times have holes for the shifter or cage that let the fumes in.

If anyone hasn't seen it yet, there's an awesome video on their website. Can only imagine how good it'll sound on the Camaro!

If the diverters are before the Turbo...you're gonna have serious issues (as in a rear-mount setup)

If they're after the turbo...all I can see you getting is a crazy-loud sound.
