NOWEEDS - Is there a resonator you might suggest to attach to the open end of the diverter that does not cost Hp, but helps the sound to not be all to deafening?

I don't have too much experience with resonators Patrick. My first thought is that we may be behind one anyway... Just speculation though.

I will definitely be looking into these once I get a 2010 SS! I might even get a set for my 67. Do you guys have any dyno data on what your system is capable of extracting from an engine?

Welcome to Camaro5!

We have yet to get any dyno information from the field yet. The product was designed primarily with attitude adjustment in mind, however, hp gains are a bonus as well. I'm not an expert on how the dyno works but I think it would be cool to hold the Camaro at a peak hp rpm and then adjust exhaust from 0 to 100% essentially giving you an "exhaust curve" at a constant rpm. Just a thought. Could be a very interesting number as peak numbers could be somewhere in the middle.

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!

So if some one were to bring there SS to you to get this done and it gets boched, how will you remady the issue?

The worst case scenario would be to re-install the original short section of pipe we take out in order to install product.

Can't wait! The chassis dyno results are going to be fun to study. Going from bone stock to full open. If we find the best gain is somewhere in the middle we can essentially 'save' the best hp number as a preset and program it into the middle button. Gonna be cool Plus, we leave the factory 'civilized' system in place. Which, from what I've heard on the videos here, sounds pretty evil by itself.

We will post everything for everyone here!

before i purchase your product, i need to see a video/pictures of previous installs and preferably dyno numbers showing how your product is better than conventional cut outs.

Your videos on noweeds.net disappeared.

We'll post everything we find after our install on here - and noweeds.net the minute we get results back and pics and videos from the install. We just switched to a new website provider so this is the reason the videos are down. We will have a 2010 CAMARO page when we get rollin' here with our install data.

Camaro5 is gonna be the first to know when this goes down. The install Camaro has a scheduled build day of April 15th and we will install shortly after delivery. I have done the Solidworks design with CAD files from GM and we are currently building the parts. The custom design for this car fits awesome and will be an extremely simple install that will work on all motors both V6 and V8 with all transmission combinations. (each platform uses a different transmission crossmember) The exhaust from the cats back is the same for all 4 possible trans/motor combinations. ***my bad looks like the L99 has a different configuration after the S pipe compared to the H pipe on the LS3-*** the GM cad files showed otherwise. Sorry****

We will update soon - thanks for all the questions!

Link to pics of stock exhaust system:

http://www.ls1tech.com/forums/2010-c...age-shots.html

But can anyone tell me if all four of the cans on the exhaust pipe near the engine are cats? Does each pipe have a cat, then a sensor, and then a resonator? Or does each pipe have a cat, a sensor, and then another cat?

We have HD video of install and dyno pulls available. There are 2 sites. First is youtube and second is vimeo. Same video, two different sites, just in case you have issues viewing one or the other. (ill throw the vimeo link on here as soon as i get it. It will be a couple hours for the processing)

Yessss!!!! I've been waiting for this! Sounds amazing for a very simple modification!

Would you expect the similar results for the L99 setup?

Thanks!

We actually decided under and behind the leading edge of the front seat would be best. No cutting panels or hacking anything up. Kevin Wheeler at Dakota Digital kicked out a cool little abs panel on the laser cutter and we used an existing .5" diameter un-used hole in the corner up under the seat. We snapped over a backing nut clip thingy... i have no clue what the technical term is... and ran a screw into that- Switch moves with the seat and is totally undetectable and is 100% non-evasive surgery to mount it. All these parts are included with the kit to make it very easy to install.
