      Video Review & Installation

      Jake: Jake here for AmericanMuscle. And today, I'm taking a look at the MBRP Installer Series Axle-Back Exhaust for the 2016 and newer Camaro SS with the NPP Dual Mode Exhaust. If your Camaro SS came stocked with the dual-mode exhaust, but you're looking at an even more aggressive note to your car without spending a fortune, then this axle-back from MBRP absolutely needs to be on your radar. It features solid construction and aggressive tones, some cool features, and a great look all for a very affordable price. Now, the LT1 in the Camaro makes a crate noise right out of the gate, but if you want some more volume, getting rid of your stock mufflers is certainly gonna help. Now, since this is an axle-back setup, it isn't going to change your mid-pipes or your catalytic converters, and it is still resonated.Now, as you heard from the clips at the beginning of the video, the tone is aggressive and it is louder than stock. But it's not quite as loud as say, a set of straight pipes. That said, we're gonna give this one a three out of five on our loudness meter. Maybe not quite enough to wake the neighbors, but they're definitely going to know something is different. Now, this setup is MBRP'S race profile, meaning that it is baked in to have more volume to it, more so than their street profile setups. Now, outside of the car, again, you're gonna get a pretty aggressive exhaust note, but inside, it's still going to be quiet enough to carry on a conversation and you aren't gonna get a lot of drone-like you might with some other axle-back systems. And that is due to these resonators. Now, these are what are known as helm holds resonators or J pipes, and they're not something that we see very often on aftermarket exhaust. It's typically something that only shows up on a custom setup.Now, the premise here is that these are going to cancel out the frequencies that cause the droning sound without affecting the overall tone or volume of the exhaust because they're just a resonator, not a muffler. So, it's a great best-of-both-worlds sort of deal. And having these is a really cool feature that I haven't seen on many other exhausts in the market. Now, it is also worth noting at this point that this system does not retain the active exhaust valves of your factory exhaust, but that is part of the cost savings that you get with this system. Now, the piping is all 3-inch mandrel bent T49 alumina stainless steel. So it's going to allow the exhaust gases to flow smoothly. There's no weird creases or bends in the metal, and it will have good corrosion and rust resistance, especially if you live in a drier climate. And they also look pretty good when mounted up on the car too. And that is, of course, due to these dual 4-inch tips.Now, these are dual wall T304 stainless tips that are polished to a near-mirror finish. Now I went ahead and put these on, so you can see they do sit staggered and they have the similar angle cut to your factory exhaust so they're going to sit pretty well in the bumper too. They've also got the MBRP logo etched into the edge here. And again, that staggered setup means that they're going to mount pretty much flush with the bottom of your rear bumper. So it's going to give a nice tasteful look when installed, but still different enough, you'll be able to tell it's not stock. Now, when it comes to price, this setup does fall toward the lower end of the category coming in around $575. So, it's pretty inexpensive as compared to some of the other offerings for axle-back systems for the Camaro.Now, again, you're not going to be getting that full active exhaust here, which is part of that cost savings, but you are getting good solid construction. There's really nice tips and the cool resonators. And I think that if you're looking for a way to amp up the sound and performance of your Camaro without blowing the budget on an exhaust, this is going to be an excellent option for you. Now, as far as install goes, this one is going to get a two out of three on our difficulty scale, and you should budget about two hours or so to get everything buttoned up. The reason for that two out of three rating is that you are going to need to make two cuts to your stock exhaust in order to remove the stock mufflers and get this stuff fitted on.However, once you've got those cuts made, it is just those two, these new pipes are gonna clamp on and they're gonna use your existing hangers. The only other thing you'll need to do is unbolt those exhaust valve actuators from your stock pipes and mount them out of the way. However, MBRP has provided a couple of brackets in order to do that and make sure that they stay out of harm's way. You also get all new clamps in the kit as well. And now to show you how to get all that done, let's head over to the install bay.Man: Tools acquired for this install include an impact gun, an electric ratchet, a hand ratchet, an exhaust hanger removal tool, a wire wheel, a 5/16 ratcheting wrench, a 3/8 to 1/4-inch adapter, a 7, 13, and 15-millimeter sockets, 8-millimeter Allen, a tape measure, a pair of safety glasses, a marker, and a Sawzall. What's up, guys? Today, we're going to be installing an exhaust on our Camaro, so let's get started. So, our first step to removing our exhaust is going to be to disconnect our valves.Now, these are going to be found on the outside of each side tip. So, we'll get the harness, press the tab, and disconnect them. So, now our first step's going to be to disconnect the wiring harness to our valve controller. To do that, we're going to remove these two 7-millimeter bolts to clear up some access. You're gonna have to take these out later on eventually because we're gonna have to slide our exhaust back this way, and the valves are going to slide under this. So, I'll get a 7-millimeter socket to get these off.Then we can push that back out of the way and then reach in there and disconnect our wire harness. And then we'll do that same thing on the other side. So, the factory exhaust system has six hangers. We have two here, two here, and then two by our tips. So, we're going to remove the inner four here, that way we can still have our two hangers in the back holding our exhaust up while we disconnect our flanges up front. So, we can get the two on our passenger side first. So, I'll grab an exhaust hanger removal tool and pop off these isolators.And then on this one, the hanger on our pipe's a little longer than the one from our chassis. So, we'll pop off our top isolator, and then we can pop it off at the bottom, and slide it back on the top. Now, we can do the same thing on our driver's side. Now, our next step is to remove our brace here. We have five 13-millimeter bolts holding that in. So I'll get a 13-millimeter socket on an impact gun to get these off. Now, our next step's going to be to disconnect our O2 sensors on both sides. Now you can do this either by unscrewing the O2 sensor or simply just unplugging the harness. We're gonna unplug the harness. So there's a white tab that you're going to push up and then push in, and then it'll separate our connector. So, we'll take our white tab, push up on it, and then we can press down and slide our connector up.Now, this side's gonna be the same thing, it's just a little deeper in there. Pull back on that tab and then disconnect our connector. So now we can work on our two flanges. We'll get those disconnected with a 15-millimeter socket. I've got a pole jack here to hold the exhaust in place so it doesn't drop down once we disconnect it. And then once we have our two flanges disconnected, we'll grab a buddy to help us pull the whole exhaust out of the car. So, now on this side, we don't have much clearance, so I'm gonna get a 15-millimeter socket with a ratchet on this side, and then we can use our impact gun on this side. So, I've got some penetrating lubricant I sprayed on here just to make it a little bit easier to get these off.Now, on this side, we can use a 15-millimeter socket on an impact gun to loosen this clamp. So, now I have a pole jack set up underneath our muffler to keep it in place. And then we're going to be removing the two bolts on our hanger on both sides to release the muffler. So now we can take a 15-millimeter socket on a ratchet to get our two nuts off. And then we'll do that same thing on the other side. So now would be a good time to grab yourself a buddy, and you can take one end while your buddy takes the other, and then we'll just simply slide it out and remove it from the car. So now with the exhaust removed from our car, we can take our valves off. Now we'll be using a 5/16-inch ratcheting wrench to remove this. And then we can repeat that same process on the other side.And now we can remove our final two hangers on our stock exhaust using an exhaust hanger removal tool. So, our first step's gonna be to mount our valve actuators to our brackets. Now, this system allows you to retain your valve so that you can plug it in and not get any check engine lights. However, there are no actual valves in this system. So, using sport mode, to track, and to your normal driving won't change your sound at all with the setup. So we can lay our bracket down on top of our actuator and then grab our 5/16 bolts and thread them into the holes. Then we'll do that same thing on this side. And then we'll take a 5/16 ratcheting wrench to tighten these bolts down.So now we can reinstall our valve actuator. So we'll reconnect our wire harness, and then this is gonna sandwich in between our diffuser and this metal heat shield. And then we can reuse our factory 7-millimeter bolt. And then we can take our 7-millimeter socket to tighten these down. And then we can repeat that same process on the other side. So now with our stock exhaust removed, we're gonna come to right behind the rear muffler where we're going to make our cut for our new exhaust. So now we can grab our tape measure and a marker, and we're going to measure out 8 inches from the rear muffler. Eight inches puts us right here, so we'll make our line. And then we'll do the same thing on the other side, measure out our 8 inches and mark our spot. So now with our measurements made and our cut lines in place, you can grab yourself a Sawzall or your cutting apparatus of choice, and a pair of safety glasses, and we can make our cuts.And now that we have our exhaust flipped over to the other side to make it a little bit easier to cut, we can make our cut on our other pipe. So now with our cuts made, we're going to take a wire wheel to clean up our edges a little. So now with our exhaust cut and our edges cleaned up, now's a good time to grab yourself a buddy to help you line up the secondary cuts in the front while you get the hangers into the isolators. Now, we'll reinstall our two 15-millimeter nuts on our passenger-side secondary cut. Now we'll take a 15-millimeter socket going back and forth, tightening these down to put even pressure on our flange. And then we'll take a 15-millimeter socket to tighten down the clamp on our driver's side.And now we can reconnect our O2 sensor harness. So we're going to slide that up out of the way so it doesn't hang on anything hot or moving. And then we'll just clip it in like that. And now we can reinstall our brace with our five 13-millimeter bolts. And then we'll just make sure all of our holes are centered. And then take our 13-millimeter socket to tighten these bolts down. So now we can take our muffler pipe with one of our two and 3/4-inch clamps, slide our clamps over, and then we'll be putting the hanger into the actuator first and then sliding it over our stock exhaust tailpipe. And then we'll slide our clamp into position and we'll tighten that down using a 15-millimeter socket. So now we can take our Y pipe and one of our 3-inch clamps, slide that right over the edge there, and then we can raise it up and onto our muffler pipe.And then we can slide our clamp into place and we'll tighten that down with a 15-millimeter socket. And now we can reinstall our hanger bracket. We're going to slide that over our hanger first, and then we'll adjust the exhaust to go over our studs. And then we can reinstall our two 15-millimeter nuts. And then we'll use a 15-millimeter socket to tighten those down. And now we can install our two tips and we can use an 8-millimeter Allen to tighten these down. And then once we're done with that, we can repeat the same process on the other side.So that'll wrap up this review and install of the MBRP Installer Series Axle-Back Exhaust to your 2016 and newer Camaro SS with Manual Transmission and NPP Dual Mode Exhaust. Thank you for watching. And for all things Camaro, keep it right here at
