I've heard of people doing both, but with the stock exhaust. There was a member here awhile ago that cut out his mufflers and left the resonators and was very pleased with the sound, but like I said, it was a stock exhaust.

You might be talking about me. This was the best sounding vehicle I've ever had (even better than the vette.)





Not sure of the sound diff between the LS1 and LS2 (exhaust routes, etc.)

G'luck anyhow.

any sound clips?

I had a friend that just replaced his BMW 540 mufflers with 2 pipes and it sounded like a Ferrari.
