    How is this done?

    Real quick.. this is my first post outside of the new members section so I just wanted to say whats up. And forgive my n00b-ness from now until I get to know more about the LS1's. Now to the question..

    How exactly do you get a very aggressive sound from a 99-02 Trans Am? As in very very loud and "lopey" or "chopy" or whatever. Like old-school muscle. For example I love these, specially the 1st one:

    And what numbers would you consider "large"? I need something thats gonna be BA but the car is gonna be my daily driver so it needs to be practical. I've never known what is considered a "large" cam # wise...

    You only need one cutout at the I pipe. I had one on my stock exhaust and I wanna get another one now that I have long tubes.

    Oh damn thats right... Im still thinking Mustangs. My bad lol. So just one cut into the Y pipe? Thats how theyre installed right... you have to cut out a segment of your piping and weld it in?

    True. Specially when you live in a town with 60% old Jews who'll back into your bumper when your car isn't even moving Don't ask... lol

    But loud pipes also cost money when you get tickets. Another thing about where I live is that a few of the cops are assholes that would pull you over for running a GREEN light haha. Thats where the cutouts would come in handy for me though
