    AVOID flowmasters at all costs. Very bad on the highway and drone really bad and drive you nuts. Stock muffler is better than a flowmaster. Go with magnaflow or Borla. I hate my flowmasters on my El Camino. My buddy who used to work at a muffler shop told me he took more off than he ever put on, I should have listend to him. I have a Borla adjustable on my Camaro and Magnaflow on my 2004 F-150 FX-4 and I love them both. Read any exhaust thread on here and everyone says the same thing.

    thanks, what kind of magna flows would you recomend, and would reccomend the whole system cats back, or would the just the muffler do?

    i just bought an 02ss with a flowmaster cat back, it doesnt sound bad i just know it doesnst flow well compared to slp or magnaflow or any other high end cat back, also no resonance and no harsh interiior noise, sounds pretty good from outside also

    imo the best cat back if you dont plan on lt's and ory and no cats is a slp loudmout, if you plan on headers and other stuff get a magnaflow as the sound will not be amnoxious. its all up to you

    i got the dynomax ultraflow catback, really deep sound, but not too loud. a bit like a boat. tiny drone at 2000 rpm. pretty inexpensive, too.

    Any chance of you posting a sound clip or video? The section for that cat back on ls1sounds.com is lacking severely.

    thanks buddy! btw the shift knob is awesome, just is terrible to drive in the heat with, so i removed it till it cools down or until i get the windows tinted.

    Yea, that damn MBA shift knob gets rediculously hot if you don't cover it properly.
