    Purely subjective and you'll get lots of answers. I am very fond of Magnaflow and run their catbacks on both the Trans Am and Suburban.

    Also depends on your budget.. borla sounds AMAZING but is very pricey

    I have the loudmouth but you can hear it from like a mile away or that is what my wife says. May be too loud for what you are looking for. I have a video if you want me to post it.

    I like the sound of the SLP LM2 system. Borla is also a great system but it will set you back alot of cash. IMO LM2 is the way to go.

    They have an effect on sound. Without them, the car will be much louder. You'll also probably introduce rasp in the exhaust tone at certain RPM, which most people do not like.

    Do you plan on getting headers for the vehicle or no?
    It's on jackstands.

    Hi Dalton.

    I run Borla on mine. And I love it.

    But another way you could hear different cat-back setups is go to LS1 Sounds - Your Comprehensive Exhaust Resource

    It's a pretty neat site where you can choose from a list of different cat-back setups to hear what they sound like.

    If you don't have a catback on already iirc the muffler won't fit since the inlets and outlets are bigger than stock.

    How much did you pay for the magnaflow and I actually bought the car in st Pete so you just cut the catalytic converters off? And also my car has service engine soon light on due to the catalytic converters off will it go away
