    catback?

    Aight, well I finally have a little money after buying the TA, and exhaust is first. I got about 5 hundo for a catback system, I wanted to save up for borla but 900 is a little to much, what should I get, I had flowmaster on my old camaro and loved it! Any suggestions?

    loud = Loudmouth
    smooth = Magnaflow
    IMO these two are the best bang for the buck. Both are high flowing and have reasonable prices.

    flowmaster sounds pretty good but has poor performance. check out ls1sounds.com

    magnaflow. smooth, classy sound, but sounds down right sick at WOT


    in my opinion, the loudmouths sound terrible. too raspy. wierd sounding. if you wanna be a loud ass, then run open headers or cutouts.

    I just recently got a magnaflow installed. It is smooth like they say and at WOT it sounds very nice. I'd go with magnaflow FTW. If you want loud then, like stated above, put in a cut out.

    loudmouth for sure sounds awsome and when you save a little bit more money it will sound killer with headers

    If by 'killer' you mean 'raspy as hell,' then yes, I agree.

    Ditto, Magnaflow is cheap, stainless, sounds awesome

    Unless your car NEEDS an exhaust tomorrow I'd save up for what you want. I have a Borla and it owns all other exhaust systems hands down. **Atleast in my opinion ** I'm sure if you rush into buying yourcat back you'd regret it later.
