Like the lengthy explanation of back pressure above, it is rather amazing how so many people have come to think we need it. After all, exhausts are designed for exhaust to leave the engine, not put them back into it.

As far as straight pipes go, I have them, love them, and they sound amazing. They definitely do not sound rice, at all.

Yes...check the exhaust sticky in the LLT section.

Listen to the Corsa's on the Dyno VS MRT thread, they sound bad ass. On a manual car, they would sound even better.

I added the X pipe left the stock res and straight piped out. My guy that does my inspections in PA said I won't have a problem passing inspection because I have all stock cats and res and basically just removed the rear mufflers and replaced them with the x pipe. I have read some people with this same setup went back and removed the resignators and weren't happy with the sound. Removing them defeated the purpose of the X pipe and reintroduced rasp

Hey guys! I have a 2013 Camaro 2LS with LFX engine. I got a muffler delete and straight pipes with stock tips done today. I like it at full throttle, but theres definately some drone at lower rpms and to me it is;nt enough rumble in the sound. I still have stock everything else like cats, resonator, h pipe, etc... What do you all suggest I do next? Should I get rid of stock resonators and put in resonated x pipe, should I just get rid of stock h pipe and put in an x pipe, what can I do to make sound better now? Thanks in advance! I am so bent out of shape over this exhaust thing! Just trying to make my v6 sound good, without spending a million bucks, i'm sure you guys understand
