exhaust for convertible

Starting to look around for a better sounding exhaust for my 2013 2LT Vert.

any of the places i check online don't say if they will fit the vert too.

question is are the exhausts the same on the vert as they are on the coupe?

and if not could anybody recommend one? or at least a site that takes the vert in question

TIA

In the spring I am going with LTH/HFC/x-pipe. I currently am stock on my SS except that I did a muffler delete which I was surprised that it's really not that loud without mufflers.


And noted, due to the undercarriage bracing, not all mufflers will fit the vert, you need to make sure the model you choose with fit.

Coupe and convertible mufflers/exhaust are different. The convert has a box hanging down on the underside of the trunk floor that can hit the mufflers. I ran into this on my 2013 2SS with a used Flowmaster system. :(

I went with TSP long tube headers, no cats and left the rest of the exhaust stock. I think it sounds awesome, pretty quite till you get on it, then it’s get loud. Best of both worlds

I did likewise except that I added HFCs with American Racing LTHs. I ordered the dual mode exhaust from the factory and didn’t want to lose that feature, so catback is stock. IIRC, it’s the midpipe that would require a brace replacement to fit a 3”.

Anyway, I’ve had this setup since new (4.5 years) and it’s been great. Still somewhat quite at idle and low RPM—although you hear it and kinda know sumpins up)—then it wails when the duals open up at 3000. With CAI and honed throttle body, picked up 44 RWHP.
