    Paragon exhaust. Paragon also sells the AWE exhausts. That’s what I chose.

    You can use the brackets for the motors for the valves but I wanted nothing of that as it is sensitive to even the smallest variation and will cause CEL. So I bought the valve simulators from Paragon Performance too. Those are simply just plugs for the wiring that will not create CELs. call Paragon.

      This is what I am doing, only I went with the Paragon touring. I have read that the simulators work well with preventing a cel.

      When I ordered mine Paragon did not sell the AFM simulators separately, they sold the AFM and NPP as a package. I only needed the AFM so I bought mine from Cicio but it sounds like Paragon is selling the simulators separately now?

        Our Simulators on our exhaust will not throw and CEL's. Easy plug and play install.

          Yeah, seperately. I also only needed for AFM. My AWE track exhaust has brackets for the motors but I wanted nothing of that extra work and risk of CEL

            I went with the Paragon Touring Exhaust (Cat Back Exhust). My Chevy Dealership (Criswell) installed it for $900. They also added the two extra quarts of DCT fluid as well for free. Paragon, and others, sell the AFM plug-in module so you do not get the CEL. I did not get that, because when Criswell installed it, they did a re-learn on ECM so there would not be any CEL. So if I think about it, between saving money on the AFM module, and the free DCT fluid add, I really only paid a couple hundred bucks to have it installed. Can't beat that.

            Below is a video. This has been posted other places on this forum, but I'll report anyways.

            Jet Black Interior w/Red Stitching and Carbon Fiber Interior Trim. Carbon Flash Roof, Nacelles and Mirrors. Front Lift. Spectra Gray Trident Wheels w/Edge Red Calipers. Chrome Exterior Badge Package. Midnight Silver with CF accent fender hash marks.
            AGM Carbon Fiber 5VM package, High Wing Spoiler, Rear Diffuser, Engine Vents, Mirror Caps, Front Grill Inserts, and Door Boomerangs.

              Glad it worked out for you!
