Has anybody tried or thought of side exhaust on camaro's? (especially LS1 4th gens). Do any of you think it would look good on an LS1 4th gen?. Maybe put tips on that are similar to what the 2000 mustang cobra R has to rival it :twisted:. Anybody have a guess as to how hard it would be to fab up a side loudmouth exhaust?
Opinions and input please!

Maybe someone could do a photoshop of side exhaust for ya. I always liked the old style look of side pipes.

I did a photoshop earlier and I think it looks pretty cool with dual tips sticking out before the rear wheel on both sides, the thing I like about it most though is the fact that nobody has done it before on an LS1 4th gen (at least not that i have seen or heard of).

I would only use a loudmouth I shotgun resonator right after the y-pipe then go to a y-collector on the other side of the resonator, then out to the sides with stainless steel 3" piping, and end it with the dual tips on both sides.

Ah so just the tips showing? I was thinking the whole side pipe things like on an old vette.

Also, since it will be a low restriction exhaust due to just having the loudmouth shotgun resonator, should i use 2.5" or 3" stainless steel tubing?. Would there be a problem with back pressure with 3" tubing with stock headers, cats, y-pipe and loudmouth resonator? What about backpressure problem with 3" tubing with long tube headers, high flow cats, low restriction y-pipe and loudmouth resonator?

Their souldn't be a problem with that set-up except the loudness of it. I have a 3' and it works great. But a 2.5' would probley work just as good. Especially if the price is crazy for the 3' just go for the 2.5' b/c our engines aren't pushing that much exhaust. But if you had a 502 or a 572 that would be a different story.

I am starting to think of maybe just straight piping the side exhaust, I have heard that the loudmouth resonator is just as loud as straight pipes, so if I do straight pipes then I could save myself about $110.

Aircare is B.C.'s emissions testing, i never thought of keeping the exhaust for emissions testing

I am now down to trying to decide what piping i should use: 2.5" or 3".
2.5" would give me more ground clearance (factory y-pipe has 4.5" of clearance and has had no problems with speedbumps, etc. The 2.5" tubing would give 4.5" of ground clearance) , but would give less exhaust flow.
3" would give less ground clearance (might be a problem with speedbumps etc., i would only have 4" of ground clearance), but would give more exhaust flow.
I am trying to decide if flow would be an issue with 2.5" tubing, the exhaust would only have cats to restrict it, which wouldnt restrict the flow that much anyway, there would be no muffler or resonator.

Would exhaust flow be much of a problem with 2.5" tubing when the car is pretty much stock?

OR

Should I just go for it with 3" tubing so it will be done ahead of time when I pretty much go all out on the car with big camshaft, supercharger, new heads, headers, etc.?

I saw an LS1 on the highway a couple months ago with side exhaust. It wasn't dual on both sides, but it still looked pretty cool. My opinion would be to go for it.

My brother had "sidewinders" on his '76 GMC Sierra Grande pickup, but that was in 1979. What kind of nastalgia you trying to create here?
you're never too old for another project car.
