    Bolt on Cat Back help!

    Ok here it is guys, I just got my 02 ta ws6 as some of you know and the situation I am faced with at this time is my exhaust is way to loud. lol as stupid as that sounds I mean I turn way to many heads and especially police. So basically I need change my cat back to be just a little more unnoticable especially with the summer coming. my current setup is :

    Dynatech headers
    Dynatech Power Cats
    Borla Cat Back

    Like I said i do not want to lose that much horsepower by doing this all I want to do is make it alittle more Subtler when cruising around. Copy seem to love me the last two weeks. That got to change otherwise my monthly car payment will be nothing compared to my monthly tickets.

    Any help and suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    What is the horsepower gain over the stock unit?

    something else you may want to check on your borla is some of them have a cap that can be removed (follow the passenger side tailpipe) it looks like a collector flange, if that is completely open then that is why your setup is so loud, it is not going thru the muffler at all. Anyone with the borla system knows what I am referring to. Something to look at, that borla system is quite expensive and worth keeping IMO.

    The one for the LS1 F-Body. I can look up the part number if you like.
    It is much tamer than the Borla. But will still let you know you have exhaust when you step on it.
    I really like the rumble when just driving around the Magnaflow mufflers give off.

    +1 I love my Hooker Catback also. But can't you put a different plate in your exaust to carm it down. I also run a DMH cutout. So I got the best of both worlds.
