Corsa for L99 comes with a resonator on the X-pipe section.

Not entirely true. My Borla Touring has absolutely no drone. Of course it is also way more civilized than that beast!

Drone seems to be more of a by product of AFM, in my opinion.

Hey, Becky, I just installed it tonight. That's why I'm up late. Took about 2 hours.

I'll get better pics tomorrow but just for the hell of it, here are some. Night time doesnt' really work well. The bottom grill is definitely coming off. I just wanted to get a shower and eat. lol

...and you have LT Headers on like Randy is adding? I guarantee there will be drone w/ LTs and Borla.

Also not talking about AFM noise... It's turned off on all the cars I've heard with LTs. Once you get a tune for headers you might as well turn AFM off in the process...

Dang that grill looks good with those hood spears... nice job

The more I look at the finished product, the more I find the grill and car's color combo growing on me.

Good job Randy

I can't wait to get my own grill.

That's one of those - don't know how the finished product will "flow" with the car, but it looks good.

Can you post a couple of day pics ?

I agree...at first I wasn't sure but the more I look at it, it sets it apart from others. Just a side note, I'm glad that I am not the only one without an immaculate garage that resembles a shrine! Your garage looks like mine- glad to see you have your wheels back on too.

Ok. I'm at the office. I'm gonna have to get a screw driver and take the bottom grill off. I forgot. Here are a couple I snapped and took the car in the back in the shade real quick.

It's good to see wheels back on your car Randy! I like the grill but I think it might have looked better black with an orange accented bow-tie but that's just me.

I still think the grill (rack) looked better with BonBon holding it. I really like the color contrast and subtle inserts of IOM, wasn't sure at first - but it looks good even with the pics taken at night. How are ya doing with the Savini's?? Any additional "issues"? Ya know, your wheels would look sweet with orange accents on them - but with the hassles you've had I'd leave them alone, they look great...

Ok. Here are a few without the bottom grill. This was the plan all along. Not sure I like it. May paint some of the orange to black. Opinions?

The hood spears being a satin, or flat, finish, don't help the match at all. But I can paint those on later.

I'd paint at least the part of the grill over the parking lights black. If it was my car, I would have gone with black to match the body color for the whole thing. But, I am not one to ask about adding color to a Camaro though. I prefer the stealth look. But I also know not everyone has the same taste I do, so do what makes you happy.
