Now for the exhaust

I knew the stock exhaust system was asthmatic but after taking it off, I now see why. This stock exhaust system is keeping the engine from reaching it's full potential. I have taken extensive pictures of the stock system so everyone can see how bad it actually is. Its also VERY HEAVY!!!! I would try and weigh it but really don't want to get a hernia. LOL. It looks like the American Racing Stainless Steel Headers and exhaust system I ordered will save about 30-40 lbs at the very least.

Saturday, I attempted to install the ARH system and noticed that the driver's side header would not fit. If something doesn't fit, its wrong. I stopped right there and inspected the rest of the system. In my haste to install this awesome system, I failed to look at the packing slip to see that they shipped me the wrong system!!!! They shipped me a header system for G8 not a Camaro. Here I was with a car striped of its exhaust system and basically undriveable. After spending 1.5 hours to remove the stock system, I was not about to put it back on. I was really upset at first, but then I realized that I have done the same in my haste to ship parts to customers only to have to expedite the correct parts to them to make amends. They were pissed at me and I felt really bad about it. So it would be hypocritical of me to bitch out the supplier for doing something that I have done as well. I will park my car and request that they get me the correct components ASAP. Then wait humbly till they arrive.

Stock Exhaust system. This thing is HEAVY!!!
