    My vote is for the Hooker catback. Dyno results in the sig.

    I gotta go with Hooker as well. I have a complete Hooker setup. They are some of the oldest in the biz. Great sound but not overpowering. I used to run a cutout full time but with the new job I am constantlyh on the interstate and could never hear my cell ring. Everyone has their preferences but "I Love My Hooker"

    I have a borla but it was on the car when I bought it.After putting on the Y pipe and long tubes it sounds great.That plus the dyno tune got me 345 to the wheels.

    Man,don't get a Hooker! It ruined my gas milage!
    The sound is so enjoyable and amazing, every time I get in the car all I want to do is WOT!!!LOL If you don't get on it, it sounds like stock and is not objectionable .I don't think you can beat the system for the money!

    I swear by Magnaflow. Great quieter tone at idle, then mean when WOT.
    And it is as good as any performance wise.


    Stay away from the SLP Loudmouth if you plan on upgrading down the road.
    I made the mistake myself years ago.
    Sounded good until I modded the exhaust further.
    Plus, SLP has terrible customer service.

    Good luck!!

    My vote is L/M. The don't call it loud for nothing, there is a drone at 2k rpm but there's nothing like it at WOT. I get more compliments from just the sound of my car than anything else...

    Not sure on the LS1, but I have an SLP Loudmouth on my '97 LT1 T/A...I love it...noticeable performance gain, sounds great...not as "loud" as you may expect, at normal driving RPM's and on the highway, just a nice rumble, can easily have a conversation in the car...but at WOT, it screams....LOL
