Yeah, the stock exhaust pipe enters the muffler at the bottom. Like the pic below. So this is a great deal for someone! :)

That is not the stock exhaust for the GXP. It looks to me like it is the GMPP exhaust made by Borla.

GM Performance Cat-Back Exhaust - 07-09 Solstice GXP - PFYC.com
I bought this exhaust off a car from the salvage yard about a 1 1/2 years ago. Never saw the stock GXP exhaust so just assumed that was what I had. I installed it on my 08 Base Sol. It does have a very good sound that I liked. Going to have DDM install Rotrex Supercharger and they recommended installing the Solo Cat Back dual exhaust to enhance the performance of the S/C. Thus the sale!

Looked the exhaust over again today. The pipe back to the muffler is two pieces bolted together with band clamps. The muffler has a short pipe that the middle section clamps onto. So it comes in three pieces! Also your right the pipe goes into the muffler on the end not through the front of the muffler. The confusing thing for me is the muffler is stamped GM Performance? So I would assume it is a GM exhaust system even if it isn't all one piece. Did GM make a three piece clamp together exhaust system replacement for the original OEM system at one point? How would I be able to verify that? It also has the Pontiac emblems stamped in the exhaust tips. :dunno:

GMPP made a cat back system for the GXP, which was ADI (Accessory Dealer Installed). It was described in the 2009 printbook as, "Cat-Back Exhaust System - Performance System, Dual Exhaust, With Welded on Tips, For Use on 2.0L (LNF) Engine".

Sorry, I don't have a part number for it.

The GMPP ADI cat back for the 2.4 was made by Borla. I would assume that Borla made the one for the GXP, also.

:dunno:

I just bought a 2007 sky base and have been thinking of exhaust options. You are a little far for me to drive to, though. Any idea on what shipping would cost to get this to Fremont, OH?

I took delivery of this exhaust today.
Anyone thinking of shipping an exhaust can check with Cmccomb1 on how to do it, cause they got it to me via UPS :)
I do need to get 2 new band clamps for the exhaust. Is there anything special I need to get?
