SS is too quiet!

My 11 2/ss has Managflow mufflers installed but still does not have that deep constant tone like you would get from Flowmaster. The rest of exhaust is factory and my car is still under warranty. My brothers, what are your suggestions?

Long tube headers are the way to go. Much deeper, broader and louder sound. Not to mention the extra 25rwhp+ gain you get

Depends..
1) new catback with series 10 flowmaster mufflers
2) stainless works chambered catback

Or..

3) long tube headers with kooks green cats (Hello lots of money)
4) long tube headers with high flow Cats and tune (bye bye warranty)

long tube headers are the way to go but require a tune and make note that a tune voids the engine warranty.

need LT headers, wont void the warranty. No mod can straight up void a warranty, it has to cause the issue that is in question for the warranty repair.

Even a tune doesnt void the whole warranty, if an engine component fails because its faulty from the factory, its still under warranty regardless of your tune.

Headers cant hurt anything, and if they did, you only dont get a warranty repair on the part they damaged, not the whole engine.

If you have a fb...

Me effing around in the snow...

4000 rpm revs-

https://www.facebook.com/#!/photo.php?v=4892838446188&set=vb.1454589641&type=3 &theater

I have Texas speed lt headers and straight pipes....whole setup is $500 and is the best sound you'll get . I've been told numerous times I have the best sounding car on c5 that isn't cammed . Warning: This is only if you want your car to me LOUD. Refer to my signature to see what apex paul said

Long tubes make the difference, but as stated above you will need a tune.

Here is a video of my car after my LT's... best I have at WOT. I have the SLP LMII axle back. LT's gave my car a much deaper sound.
