    well you need to clarify. . .by full do you mean true duals or headers+catback or headers+true duals

    cat back is simple and easy

    true duals will flow a tad better and give a better tone

    lt headers + catback will flow even better, but is sometimes raspy (unless you have magnaflow )

    lt headers + true duals will flow the best and sound the best

    Catback is the first step.

    Unless you can drop the coin for longtubes and duals all at once.
    I do recommend Magnaflow. Not the loudest...but has a nice mean growl.

    My custom duals with Magnaflow mufflers....

    I just got this setup, only with TSP LT's. Not sure about "bad ass", but i definately love it. Mines extremely quite at idle and low rpm's, Over about 2500rpms though its got an awesome tone (and gets loud from that point).

    I like it, just as an example, you go from having to have my pioneer deck around 40/60 to hear the radio going down the hiway with them open, but close them down you can hear it just fine at about 15-20

    sound clip.....
