I have a short video of when I panned my camera under your car to show the exhaust setup. Need to convert it to a compressed format and somehow send it to you. I didn't really want to load it on my youtube since it isn't my car and I'll get a lot of questions about it.

Here are some details on my exhaust install.

It's a DynaMax muffler for a new Camero which has an inlet/outlet on one end and just an outlet on the other and custom made piping and stainless steel tips from Solo Performance (T601-1L8 & T601-1R8).

Looking through the pictures you can see the installation process as well as the modifications I made to the diffuser. As you can see from the first picture, this is an SX model, I ordered in a diffuser for an EX and then used painters tape and a piece of cardboard to layout the cuts I wanted to make for the new tips. I cut the holes lower to start with and after the install I re-cut them to the size and shape I wanted and added the door trim to finish the opening. Then the shop did a final alignment of the tips for me.

Cost ('cause I know you're gonna ask, lol!):
Door Edge Guard $5 CAN. Canadian Tire
Diffuser $60 US. from eBay (Automotive APro)
Tips $150 CAN. delivered, from Solo Performance, Mississauga, Ontario.
Muffler, supplies and install $525 CAN. Jerry's Mufflers, Kelowna.
