Default Exhaust upgrade...

I have a 1995 SLE. Exhaust is stock. I've seen/read about Magnaflo High-flo cats, and also Dynomax Turbo Mufflers. What I want to do is put a magnaflo high-flo cat in, and do a dynomax turbo muffler with dual out...from what I read, the model the camaro of my year uses would do the trick? Does anyone have part numbers for these for me? Also I am looking for tips that would fit and look chrome...or some other suggestions from members would work too.... Everyone give your input, especially those who have done exhaust modifications already...

I cut the old cats out with a sawsall and weld the new ones in. Not to hard. The muffler will take some fabbing to fit though. You will probably have to weld an extension onto the old pipe to fit the muffler. And the tailpipes will have to be custom bent as well as the hangers. I did mine in about an hour with some stainless rolled tips

Well I was basically looking for part numbers for the muffler, and maybe some images of tips installed by members here that have a chrome like look but stay clean pretty easily...or whatever someone recommends.... I am going to buy the tips and muffler and have my mechanic install it, I was not looking to do the work myself.

So I had the cat checked and all is good there, I want to get the muffler on soon, I want a Dynomax Turbo Muffler, so do I just get one for the 1995 Camaro and bolt that in basically or?

Basiclly any duel outlet muffler for a 90'* camaro will work. There will have to be some fabbing with the pipes to get the muffler to fit. If you get one that has 2.25 outlets it will work better

Your exhaust is probably 2.25'. You'll need reducers also. The C bend in your intermediate pipe will also need to be adjusted to fit (shortened).

There'* a little 'hidden' work and some cost besides the muffler.

Get it welded...clamps are crappy. They dont seal well and rust out. I clamped my first muffler on, but having the second one welded was much better. No leaks, no rusted clamps, and solid hangers.
