Ive got hooker LTs and ORY and borla cat back and i like the sound but if youve ever seen the design of the cat back the passenger side is louder if you stand out back and listen closely but in the cabin you cant tell and a friend has LTs and ORY and the hooker cat back and it sounds great too

you could also go with a set of Bassani true duals if you dont mind spending the $$..... I would rather do that than trust it with a local shop unless you know what kind of work they do for sure.

I bought them used so I had to get new gaskets - the GM ones work fine and are affordable. Also got new header bolts too for some extra insurance, since my car is high mileage (80k) didn't want to risk breaking a bolt off into the block.

I talked to a guy named Eon that is a mechanic for GM in Irmo, SC. He does third gen motor performance stuff on the side and works with some nascar pit crew. He said the Hooker lt's take him four hours to install, that is with a lift. He said that they are a pain in the ass and you have to drop the engine and transmission out of the bottom of the car as far as the harnesses and hoses will strech to put them in. Idk just a thought.
Off topic, but he also mentioned that on the flow deck, the Patriot Performance Heads flow almost as good as AFR's. Just another thought.

The Magnaflow sounds pretty good too......not too loud like the LMII with headers..... good buy for those of us without endless pockets.

me and a friend put a set of Jet Hots LT's on in 3.5 hours without removing the motor or tranny or unbolting anything (with a lift). the worst part was getting the stock shit off, it took about 2 hours, by the way the guy at Jet Hot wouldn't say but let on that their headers resemble Hookers alot hint hint. Another friend of mine installed the Pacesetters(on jack stands in his garage, it took the better part of a day), and they had a little better clearance than mine and were a little cheaper, they both looked almost identical. both sound good.
