It only takes about 45 minutes, a few handtools, and less than $300 to make your ’10-11 Camaro really look and sound great, according to Pypes Exhaust. Their Camaro Pype Bomb employs unique, louvered-core, resonated, dual-wall 304 stainless tips to give your car an incredible muscle car sound without the popping noise associated with other manufacturers’ kits.
