Will the C6 automatics, V6 and V8, get the adjustable dual exhausts?

Will the new C6 automatics, the V6 and V8, get the adjustable dual exhausts option? I know with v8 C5 you could not order it because of the active fuel management. Now that both the v6 and v8 have AMF.... Hopefully us auto people will get the kick ass exhaust system option.

That's excellent news.... With the C5 v8 auto.... They would say you could order the dual exhausts.. Then a day later they would call you and tell you about the AMF systems and how the dual exhausts system was not compatible.... Please change your car order... I still bought two of them.... But was envious of the M6 for that reason.

Man I hope so.

The LT1 in the Corvette gets dual mode for both transmissions, so I'm going to assume the Camaro will too....and so based on that I hope the V6 will as well!

KMP... I am right there with you on the dual exhausts option....i love my C5 L99 but if you didn't tune out the AMF you were stuck with the trash can exhausts hanging out to hide the AFM noise.

Hopefully, a GM NVH engineer that has dealt with this already can update us!

It also irritates me when people use C5 / C6 to refer to the camaro. I can't help but immediately think of the corvette.

I do understand.. But this website is called Camaro6.com. So your going to have to get used to the C6 abreavation being used.

OK guys....according to the dealer's play book in this thread (http://www.camaro6.com/forums/showthread.php?t=409099) it states in the 1st post on page 12:

"available dual-mode exhaust (automatic and manual V6 and V8 models only)"

So I take that as a yes for all V6 and V8 models, and not the T4.

I've noticed several folks referring to the different Camaros as "C5" and "C6"... this is new nomenclature to me. I assume it is meant to distinguish between Gen5 and Gen6 Camaro. Please, let's not add another made-up acronym. Thanks.

Edit: should have read the entire thread - I see others have also mentioned this... and thank you for that. At the very least, please refer to them a G5 or G6.

The C6 is a Corvette.

We have used C5 for years on the Camaro5.com website. But I'm all ears... What should we use to abbreviate the new Camaro 6?

The trash cans don't hide the AFM farting... nothing does. You have to do away with the AFM, either via a tune or a Range Device.

Correct

C6 is a corvette From 2005-2013

C Followed by a number is pretty much the official designation of a Corvette generation.

Well I've only been on here for 3 years, but I've never seen references to C5 when speaking about the Generation 5 Camaro. For the website, yes, but not the car. Guess I've just missed it. I would think, if Gen5 or Gen6 is too hard to type... G5 or G6 would be better.

This forum also have Corvette sections. Most just say gen 6. It's not that many letters to need shortening more.

6th gen. If someone doesn't want to type 7 characters, I'm not real sure what to tell them. It matches exactly with referring to the fifth gen camaro as a 5th gen, and, from what I've come to understand, is generally how camaros are referred to. I've never seen anyone refer to a 4th gen camaro as a C4. Again, C4 is a corvette. You say 4th gen on a camaro site, people know what you're talking about. Considering that corvettes and camaros are both GM cars, the corvette does occasionally get brought up in discussions, and if you say C6 or C5, it should exclusively refer to the corvette, considering those are the actual model names of the corvette.

Hopefully the new Gen6 AFM system doesn't have the same bad exhaust sounds... Maybe a new C7 corvette owner can chime in here.
