I just checked with their "live help online" and they do not currently have the exhaust for the 2005 w/ a 6.0 engine.

RATS!

How strange...

They are $100 less than Summit but for the GTO Flowmaster setup they are $200 more. Go figure.

Diggs

P.S. And I agree - no 2005 yet. Dag-nab-it!!

Did you do the install? Was it hard?

Has anyone installed this yet? Are the tips as nice as the stock tips? Does it perk up the performance at all?

Great Sounds already!

Yes, can you please describe the sound? I am about to place an internet order
HI vettegirl,

Unless you are wanting to gain a few more horsepower I suggest staying with the current stock exhaust system. The sounds on the 03 and 04 are already "excellent" and very "throaty" sounding! I would say drive yours for a while longer before you think about changing your exhaust system. I believe the vast majority of our members love the sounds of their stock exhaust systems.

In 03 and 04 there were a couple of states that made GM add resonators to the stock exhaust system because it exceeded their state limit for noise. There were also many complaints to GM about "too much resonating noises around the 1500 to 1800 RPM range in the cockpit. Thus GM made some changes (made it slightly more quiet) in the 05 exhaust systems to address those issues/ concerns.

Remember, if you go louder than the original/ stock exhaust system you might find those sounds to be even loader or perhaps much more disturbing over longer periods of driving.

Unless you are looking for more noise and perhaps some added horsepower I would not get dual exhaust... just my two cents worth!

electric exhaust cutout

A good alternative to changing exhaust systems for a little more growl is an electric cutout. I installed a "McCord Power Plate" on my '02 SS Camaro with the 345 hp LS1. You can go from mild to wild in about 3 seconds. You retain your modest stock sound for every day driving but can employ the electric cutout for that open exhaust sound when wanted. It fits real nice on the 3" straight pipe after the cats. :cool
