    The right exhaust system for my LS1

    Hello everyone, I am looking to install a new exhaust system on my 2000 Camaro Z-28, which I have had for 10 years now. I cut off my old exhaust, which was a Borla Pro Xs because it was too quiet for me. I was running a Flowmaster before I got into a car accident, and I loved the sound of it. I want that deep, nasty, throaty sound that complements my Maro on the street, and that you can hear from down the street. I have been looking into the Super 40 and Super 44 Flowmasters, a true dual exhaust Flowmaster system with an H pipe, and I heard that Magnaflows are good exhaust systems too. I have heard that the performance of Flowmasters are not that great , but to me I love the way they sound. If I can get great performance with the Camaro rumble that would be great. I appreciate the feedback.

    Well hello from the east bay
    People forget that it is the 80 series flowmaster that sucks, pick up a 10 series and see if anyone will argue it doesn't flow well. If you want loud and plan on sticking with stock exhaust manifolds a single muffler like the 10 series or a bullet/round muffler would be more aggressive than catbacks.
    y2kpewterss's suggestion is a good start to help you get an idea of what you might prefer than just a bunch of strangers opinions.

    A Flowmaster Super44 is a good sounding/flowing muffler, and so is a Spintech SC muffler.

    Also Hooker has a great sounding/flowing cat-back system (with there Aero Chamber muffler) for around $377.

    Myself I run a Magnaflow bullet right after the Y-pipe with a turn-down before the axle, it makes me grin every time I get on the freeway!

    After hours of research and listening to different exhausts on LS1 sounds, I'm leaning towards a Spintech super pro street true-dual exhaust setup. Now I'm researching between Kooks and American Racing headers. Also, whether I should go with a X or H pipe setup. Any advice is appreciated. Right on.

    I bought American Racing Headers to save a few bucks off the Kooks, but still to get a very hi-end header and was not disappointed. They are beautiful, and fit perfectly with no work at all, no BFH banging, just a great fit. Plus, IMO the collector designs are a little nicer than the kooks.

    Did you go with the X or H pipe with your ARH?

    Just about everyone goes with an x-pipe for better flow.

    I finally decided on my headers and exhaust, and made some purchases this weekend. I decided to go with the Kooks 1 3/4" x 1 7/8" x 3" Stepped Stainless Steel Headers, a pair of Spintech Super Pro Street 4x6x9 Mufflers, and an H-pipe from Summit Racing. I went with the H-pipe because it supposedly gave more of the muscle car sound, but is lower in performance flow, also because I wanted to be different from others with the X-pipe. It wouldn't matter after I install a cam later anyway. I cant wait to install these parts, and its my first time installing headers so I know its going to be a challenge. Any advice for the install is appreciated. Right on.
