    2002 z28 exhuast setup?

    I am wanting to get a new exhuast setup for my car. Im not sure what would be best but i can only afford the exhuast setup not the headers. I am leaning towards a magnaflow setup and was wondering what kit i should get?

    I have magnaflow and i like it. It depends on what type of sound you like though. Magnaflow is more of a deep rumble that sounds stock at idle but wakes up when you get on it. If you want something that is loud all the time look into loud mouth 1 or 2.

    Magnaflow catback with dual tips. It was on the car when I bought it.

    I liked my magnaflow when I still had my cats and manifolds cuz it would open up when I got on it. Now that I have longtubes and catless y pipe I love it. It's kinda quiet when cruising but now it really opens up when I get on it.

    I have the Magnaflow catback with two single 3.5" tips. IMO looks better on camaros. Quad 4" tips look great on Trans-ams with dual openings in the rear bumper.

    Sounds great at WOT, quiet at cruise (quieter than stock).

    My car has the TD setup right now with a muffler on both sides the pipes coming straight back and over the rear axel. A person suggested that he thought i may have lost some HP with this setup. I am also wondering if i go with the magnaflow mufflers and tips if i would gain or lose HP.Another person said to scrap the TD setup and go with the maganflow catback system. LOL i feel like the more i learn and talk to people the more confused im getting.

    ditto!

    Cant beat the sound of a magnaflow especially when the mods start to add up on a car
