My wife will be driving it and I have orders, NOT LOUD, so I have to find a compromise of power/quiet. Soon enough, hopefully, we will see our options and be able to make some decisions...its an exciting time, if the economy doesn't ruin it for us.

I know that in California, in order to void your warranty, the dealer has to prove that what you did caused the problem. Let's say for example you replaced the gears in the rear and your stereo stops working... and the dealer says sorry you voided your warranty by placing aftermarket gears in the car therefore your entire warranty is void... They have to prove that the gears stopped the stereo from working. That is an extreme case of course but it has been known to happen. Basically they burden of proof is on the dealer to prove what you did caused the failure. So be careful, if you mod your motor and it blows up, even while driving under normal conditions... chances are they wont cover it.

EDIT: At least that's the way I understand it.

What would glass packs 18" be like?
I really really want mine to sound like my dad's 442! Not high pitched like some of these cars today.
TIA! I hope I'm not way out of the ball park.
My husband called them purple hornies, but he may be yanking my chain?

Your husband's not BS'ing you. Purple Hornies glasspack mufflers are still made by Flowtech. You certainly can't get cheaper loud, low restriction mufflers than glasspacks, but I can't vouch for the sound. I had some Thrush glasspacks on my Roadrunner many, many years ago and liked them at the time, but was it better than today's sound? If you're talking 442 though, if not stock, it probably had glasspacks of some sort on it.

One problem might be the return sensor tubes on the Camaro muffler, at least the upgrade muffler shown below has them and I imagine the stock mufflers too. Also, glasspack's may be too loud to be within legal limits....if you happen care about that. Good luck!

A buddy of mine had that on a 69 Camaro he dropped a built 427 Tri-Power in. That car sounded like the end of the earth was coming

The "drive-by" in this instance is the microphone used to pick up the total noise volume generated by the car being tested. This testing picks up all noise generated by the car, so a supercharged car with an audible whine component must have a quieter exhaust to stay under the maximum allowable decibels in order to pass the test.

This federal requirement limits how loud any car manufacturer can make their performance models, so those types of cars are generally tuned for a deeper sound rather than a louder sound. This is one of the reasons that aftermarket exhausts are so popular. Once you purchase a car, you only have to worry about being ticketed for breaking your local sound level ordinances.
i see your in IL, do you also know that its the state law that any exhaust modification here is illegal? regardless of sound levels

Those are exhaust hangers, not sensor tubes. They support the mufflers.

I will probably be trying Flowmaster Super 44 series. I have them on my Chevelle, and I've heard them on some late model vehicles...very nice (classic) sound.

I dont know a lot about exhaust sytems but I do own a 2006 Muastang gt and they do sound good, could you not just drill 1 or several holes into the can of the resonator on the camaros to get a louder sound? and also they could always be plugged off at a later date if you dont like it.

had my 2ss L99 exhaust done yesterday.
We left the resonator and did Stainless mandrel bent back from there sized up to 4" at tip. Removed the Cans.

Now the car sounds like a Hot Rod; KnN drop in should be here soon.
