Old school sound

Can anyone recommend a exhaust system that produces a more old school sound like the old 1st gen Camaros. Looking for a more deeper/rumbling exhaust sound/system. I have a 69 Camaro running x-pipes that sounds really good just trying to schieve the same sound with my 2010 LS3.

Thank you....

A tighter lobe seperation on the cam can realy help achieve the choppy sound your probably going for but on the 4th gens GMMG made a dual chambered glasspack catback that sounded amaizing. If they are not making a kit yet or you want to save a buck just order a pair of the chambered glasspacks from summit racing or jegs and have them installed at a good muffler shop.

Thank you....

The closest way you will have a 5thgen sound more like a 1st gen would be to install some cherry bombs and get the deep tone.
Understand the generation of Engines we have now have more of a RASP sound to them that we all like compared to what you would hear in 1969.

if you are looking for DEEP then go with Borla imo thats the closest thing to DEEP you are going to get from a 5thgen Trust me My 69 has a Bigblock im in the same boat you are in. ITs still not the same but its close enough IMO.

haha thanks. that is the best way to describe it. I pulled into pep boys to get some detailing junk and some guy stopped me and was like I have not heard a camaro sound like that since the 60's.

LOL, you wouldn't say that if you heard a GMMG car in person. Obviously if you need more volume though, nothing helps like long tubes.

the exhaust is just kooks headers and cats to the stock xpipe and at the end its LM II mufflers.

As for the cam its a LS3 Stage 3 Blower cam.

here is the dyno

Dont forget you will never get the same sound because GM changed the firing order on the lsx motors to smooth out idle.

if you're looking for purely exhaust, I'd consider Stainless Works retro chambered system. That's the closest you'll get to the 1st gen sound w/o swapping out the cam.
