Thanks for all the replies guys. It seems everyone has their own favourite. I'm booked in to a custom exhaust specialist on Wednesday to look at and possibly try some options. It seems the resonator delete could cause drone. The problem here is that the specialists work with Mercs, Jaguars and other V8's but have no experience with the Camaro.

Drone isn't taken care of in the resonator section. That is what the OEM J-pipes are for. Those are located in the huge mufflers in the back.

You're going to get drone anytime you mess with the exhaust to become louder. Especially in the L99. Seems you want a pretty tame sound so I suggest putting in a resonated x pipe and do a muffler delete. Or keep all your stuff and put in high flow cats and call it a day.

Keep the resonator!

My setup sounds amazing, headers, HF cats, stock resonator, SOLO axleback

I've seen a Challenger have a nice idle rumble to their car. My Camaro not so much, but when i hit the throttle all i can do is smile. I always wondered if it would be better without the resonator though.

Does the resonated x pipe replace the huge H pipe resonator on the L99 ?

Yes, the Resonated X will replace the L99 resonator, but you will also have to add a little bit of pipe due to the difference in size.

A resonated X pipe with stock mufflers would likely be even quieter than stock. I would also look into replacing the mufflers as well. If you want to do it for the best bang for your budget, I would get the Resonated X pipe Part # 11386 and (2) Magnaflow mufflers Part # 11366 and have them welded in. This setup will esentially be a Magnaflow Street series catback that will not drone.

Feel free to call, PM or email me with questions or for a great price.

Best regards,

Tyler

Thanks for all the advice.
Finally went with just the rear muffler delete with shaped pipe and new tips. Loving the new sound (and popping).
Stock mufflers could be added back at any time in about 15 minutes but that ain't gonna happen !
