    There is no way to F that up... I can understand mixing up a Z and a V6 at first glance... but not an SS.

    i would rather my car was mistaken for a v6. I was thinking about taking the z28 badges off and throwing RS badges on because i have the body kit to make it look truly like a v6 but the cam lop gives it away.

    Could be worse - when I first got my car (pre-conversion), people asked how I liked my G6 (or my Cavalier)...
    My 2004 VY/VZ Monaro Conversion (1 of 889...)

    The other cars:
    1996 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible (3.8 V6/4A)
    1994 Saturn SC2 (1.9L I4/4A)
    1981 Eldorado Diesel <-- slower, but smokier

    Hell of a price difference between the two
    Either one is good, but no headers after the SLP

    i have the SLP LM1, put it on myself... SOUNDS GREAT IMO


    However, as mentioned, i knew prior to purchasing it i couldnt really buy long tube headers with the SLP LM1... i hear it gets obnoxiously loud/raspy

    as for how it is right now, i personally like the sound of it and it didnt break the bank... and wasnt bad to install either.. hardest part was detatching the old exhaust @ the Y pipe connector... ended up sawzalling the pipe as it went over the axle and sawzalling the y pipe flange thing...

    heres a video that made me get it..

    no lm1 is not the most expensive it's just a resonator with tips.

    Magnaflow.

    Cheaper, good for power, and in my opinion...sounds as good as any system.
