    I have a 2002 TA WS6 and I am debating between getting a Flowmaster back or getting a Cat Back system. Will I notice a diference from getting a muffler back system compared to a CAT back system???

    yes, a catback will flow better. But wutever u do, PLEASE DO NOT GET FLOWMASTERS. Your stock exhaust will probably flow better

    Muffler back would be pointless. Although the stock muffler is restrictive, but the piping from cat back is what really frees up some HP. Go with the hooker if you want a good deal that will give you some nice gains. Cheaper alternative would be getting a cutout and you could get the same games. DO NOT get flowmaster, they, for lack of a more appropriote word, suck.

    btw, Add into that combo some hooker Longtubes (or Pacesetter, same thing), and a Off road Ypipe and you will see some nice gains.

    I have a Flowmaster catback on my car right now.

    Do I like it?? No. Would I reccommend it to others?? Certainly not.

    Its got a very mellow tone, and the muffler that it comes with (crossflow, 80 Series) is garbage. Its large, heavy, and flows terribly. The catback also isn't stainless, its only a few years old and its already starting to rust pretty badly.

    It was on the car when I bought it, I'm getting true duals soon and junking the flowmaster.

    If you are looking for a complete exhaust, go with true duals.

    Bassani makes a True dual system that bolts right up to the stock manifolds, and it can be modified relatively easily later on if you want to install long tubes.

    The Bassani system has been proven to make more power than any other catback, because its not the crappy Y-pipe setup. Its a dual 2.5" over-the-axle setup with an x-pipe and dual in/dual out muffler.
