    Should i be worried about all the rust
    Its got stock exhaust manifolds.

    What rust? there is very minor surface rust on the subframe jacking points,a lite sand and primer and all is good.

    We have a few very small rust spots under our car - mostly at the seams. Unfortunately, matching the paint with any degree of accuracy is probably about impossible as it varies across the underbody, depending upon the amount of overspray it got hit with from the factory. Almost appears the pale greenish color of weld through primer. I keep an eye on things and the entire underbody gets at least one good scrubbing per season.

    GMMG is a nice set up but imho it is overpriced. What exactly is it that you are looking for in an exhaust? Exhaust brand advice is very opinion based, so you will likely get many different opinions. I have the slp loudmouth and it is deep, loud, and aggressive. Plus it is reasonably priced. I can post up a sound clip if desired.

    I am looking for just that. Deep, loud and aggressive. A sound clip would be great.

    The exhaust in the video is obx longtube headers, obx catted y pipe, and slp loudmouth catback. So with the stock exhaust except the slp catback it will be a little quieter I would imagine.

    Close to $1000.00. I paid about $389 for the catback and $600 for the catted y pipe and headers. I would research different headers and y pipe combos before you jump on it though. If you have the cash I would buy kooks headers and y pipe but it is expensive and I didn't have that kind of cash when I bought mine.

    Cool glad you like it,nothing matches LS power.

    OBX headers are the Chinese knockoff of Kooks headers,mine went in easy and still look real good,I got mine for $450.00 shipped with Y Pipe and resonators that look like cats.

    I run a Magnaflow CB and everyone says it sounds awesome.

    With free mods, headers, tune,LS6 intake and lid I went 12.88 at 109mph with a 1.97 60ft.

    The good news for you is your car already has an LS6 intake and better heads,the 241 castings.

    Headers tune and CB gets you 12's easy.
