Gearheads aren’t new to replacing stock exhaust systems with aftermarket to get the perfect sound. But YouTuber GuitarmageddonZL1 took noise level up a notch when he put an aftermarket exhaust system on his 2017 Camaro ZL1 with an engine note so loud it blew his side curtain airbags. And probably one of his passenger’s eardrums.
He says the exhaust diverters routed the tubes too close to the airbag sensor. The noise and pressure where strong enough to trick the sensors into thinking there had been a wreck. Talk about a loud exhaust.
