Cheap and easy camaro exhaust

Last Friday I had the exhaust done on my camaro SS. All we did was cut the 4 resonators off(2 on each side) and replace them with a set of Thrush dual chambers. Cost was about $150 and it sounds awesome. Here is a video of what it sounds like.

I had the exhaust done at J's Performance in Dubuque, Iowa. It's my friends shop. They are dual chamber Thrush mufflers. They are similar to the Flowmaster 40 series. 2.5" outlets which is what the stock SS has. I am not sure if the V6 has a true dual exhaust, but I know it has two mufflers like the SS. You could replace the stock mufflers and cut the resonators and it should sound good. As for the blue smoke comment. It's definitely not blue, just normal condensation on a cold day in Iowa. Oh, and it is a manual 6 speed.
