Hello to all GTO people,
my first post so easy on me :D , here is my newbie question: why does GTO have two mufflers but tail pipes coming out only from the driver side but not from both sides? didn't all LS1 equipped cars have tail pipes on both sides?
it would be sexier.. what do you think?
and yes I will get one soon, probably a 05 :cheers

GTO Dual exhaust

The GTO has a true dual exhaust system. Two competely separate pipes each with its own catalytic converter, resonator, and muffler.

So why do the two pipes both exit on the same side of the car? For that you need to look at the Holdon Monaro that the GTO is based off of. Its rear panel only has the single "indent" for the exhaust pipe. The people putting the GTO together only had 18 months from conception to delivery, changing that detail was put off for a '05 change. Thus the '05 will have the more traditional looking dual exhaust, one on each side of the car.

Either way, the car has the best sounding stock exhaust I've ever heard.
