    Which is best is subjective. I can tell you I like my Pacesetter LT's and Magnaflow exhaust, then somebody else will chime in with a different setup and tell you how much they like theirs. Try to find a car in your area that has a setup like you want, or go online and listen to some different exhaust setups and see what you like best.

    I run the Kooks LT's, catted Y and Magnaflow catback with the 4" dual tips on our car. Added a DMH cutout to it after the fact. As far as fitment, quality and overall sound, this makes a great combo. And yes, the tips are "sweet":

    IF I go with full exhaust would the LS6 MANIFOLD be a must have? Thinkin bout the magnaflow for sure but dont know If Kooks or pacesetters would be best, Lookin for the best bang for the buck

    Kooks are expensive. I have their 1-7/8" headers and their ORY. Go to their site and look at the prices if you would like to get a ballpark. You are looking at over a grand though; not included the actual exhaust. If you also want their dual set-up, you are looking at well over 3K just for a full exhaust.

    I am biased towards what i have which is KooKs LT`s ( 1/78) & KooKs hi-flo cats w/ 3'' Magnaflow catback. Everyone has different tastes for sound etc,,,so?...But a word of warning- you know you cant pass our emissions w/Lt`s w/o a ''friendly tech'' right? So i`d suggest keeping the stock manifolds-(or go shortys which some think arent much better than stock?) and go with a cut-out because every other year im a nervous wreck when its smog time!!!!

    that 4 inch tip looks sick. I had Pacesetter LTs and ORY pipe, and a magnaflow catback. It was nice, good sound. It was a little quieter than the hooker catback i had on it before that, I honestly liked the hooker catback better. Sounds a little meaner at idle.

    I liked my magnaflow, it was tamer than the GMMG but it was nice when i left for work at 6:30 in the morning. Plus i never thought i'd admire a set of tips so damn much, even more than the CME. I miss that catback lol

    My buddy has Magnaflows on his Camaro.
    They sound nice but, I popped for the SLP II cat back system and like it a lot more.
    Even the shop where I had it installed who sells Magnas said it sounds better.
    Then he asked me not to drive around his shop cause it would hurt his Magna sales. LOL
    Check out the SLP II.

    I'll post up my exhaust setup and clip. I run 1 7/8" QTP LT's, with a custom stainless ORY, into a Borla adjustable with no restrictors. It'll draw some attention. Some of the members on here have heard it in person, and they can give their opinions as well.

    I have OBX 1 3/4x3" stainless steel headers, Highflow catted y-pipe, and SLP loudmouth exhaust. It sounds really nice and loud but not ridiculous and no rasp but I may gut the cats at a later point.
