So I have been wondering about what exhaust to put on a new 5thgen.
Everyone knows you pay for what you get when it comes to Headers and if you want quality then you go stainless and who other than Kooks offers a stainless proven longtube ?
Kooks has something for all aplications and can piece together an exhaust system for you in no time . There headers have 1 3/4 or 1 7/8 primaries and and there catted or off road Xpipe are designed to work GREAT with there Headers and there own personal kooks mufflers. If you like you can go with someone like Borla , Corsa and someone else as in a muffler choice.
It all depends on what sound you are wanting when it comes to picking the right application. I want agression and I want to be heard.
IF I could piece together an exhaust system I would get longtubes , Catted Xpipe and as for the muffler thats a question yet to be filled.
Now as for Stainless works we have all heard the mean SS2 that Camaro5 member TagUrIt will own.
His car has a system that has been tested and proved by Stainless work.
IT HAS MONSTROUS 2 INCH PRIMARY TUBES, LASER CUT PORT MATCHED HEADER FLANGES, TUNED 4 INTO ONE COLLECTORS, HIGH FLOW LARGE BODY SS CATS AND A HUGE 3" X PIPE AND FULL 3" FLOW THROUGH EXHAUST AND MUFFLERS.
I e-mailed and asked SW what his car has on it thats how I got the info up above.
2inch primaries ? 3inch pipe ? Wow
Kooks uses 1 7/8 primaries on there 2010 application.
I would think 2inch primaries are for applications that have high HP but with the numbers SW got out of there exhaust it has me wondering.
Cant you go to large on primaries and lose low end torque?
Who would yall go with if money wasnt really something you were worried about ( I know thats not often but come on lets say you wanna do it right and the first time around ) Would you piece an exhaust together from Kooks ?
OR get with Stainless works and put there 2inch primaries and 3 inch pipe all the way back on ?
Money is an option in my part as it is for most anyone im just wondering which would be the better BANG for performance and sound in what im looking for.
I always keep in mind $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ you pay for what you get
