Chambered Exhaust

Hi Guys,

I would like to install a chambered exhaust for 69 Camaro (4speed-427BB). I am looking for a mild kit. I found two company that sell the chambered exhaust for reasonable price. The first one is Power Stick Mufflers (http://www.classicchambered.com/) and the second one is the Sweet-Thunder (https://sweetthundermi.com/19-chambered-mufflers). both sets are 2.5'. The Power Stick can be installed with two chambered underneath the floor and two resonator behind the rear end or vice versa. And the Sweet-Thunder do not offer it with resonator.

What do you think guys?

Re: Chambered Exhaust

Hopefully you are into really loud and less horsepower than you would have with a mandrel bent system w/ Magnaflows, cause that is where you are headed. It's your choice and your money, so go for it.

The only reason someone would want insurance is if they want to pay someone elses bills or want someone else to pay their bills.

Re: Chambered Exhaust

Allen's Corvette Exhaust in Indiana has the least expensive after market chambered exhaust system for the Camaro that I've seen... They have built/sold them for years, although I couldn't find reference to them in looking at their website today. I'd suggest you call them to get availability and pricing if you are interested..

Re: Chambered Exhaust

The chambered exhaust on my 350 sounds like a factory side pipe Corvette. Same design only much longer than the Vette. I've never heard the system with a big block. Yes the chambered is louder especially at higher rpms. You can say goodbye to your radio system if you have one. IMO, there is nothing like the crisp thunder of a 427 w/magnaflow. I've heard different opinions on the horsepower debate.

Re: Chambered Exhaust

So why did GM put it on cars if it's a HP robber?

It was better than the mufflers they had at the time.

Re: Chambered Exhaust

So you mean that installing 2 resonators with a flowmaster muffler (2.5') are better than installing chambered exhaust???

I couldn't find any real-world testing on chambered exhaust systems. The factory chambered systems had small ID's but the new ones probably don't. But that means they are probably louder.

Re: Chambered Exhaust

I put a set of the Gardner exhaust with mufflers on my '69 BB Camaro. My intention was to show the car in stock form and later add headers with electric cut outs (very cool IMO). So I purchased an extra set of front pipes with the full Gardner set. Fast forward to today & the BB Camaro has a new home, but I still have the extra set of front pipes. If anyone with a BB Gardner exhaust system wants to add cut outs without altering their original system - my pipes are available. I also have a set of chambered Gardner exhaust on another '69 Camaro that I have (originally came with chambered). Either way.....Gardner systems are great.
