    Either one. I think the Hooker is a little louder.


    I am a Magnaflow guy myself.

    What are you looking for in a catback? Are you going to be doing headers in the future?

    The Magnaflow is absolutely best you can get for 340 Bucks(unless you got some crazy hook up).

    Why not just replace the muffler for about $150.00 ? I'm running just the Magnaflow muffler with the stock system and while it sounds nice & mellow , I have a brand new Hooker waiting to be installed which should be just a tad louder. Don't want any drone & don't want the cops to look up every time I pull off from a green light.
