    Hooker Cat-back!!

    Has anyone used this cat-catback or their aerochamber muffler. I'm looking for something that sounds diffrent than my flowmaster. I don't really like how flowmaster's sound in newer muscle cars, they do sound great in suv's or older muscle cars. I'm looking for a deeeeeper sound. Flowmaster to raspy with my LT'. Also looking into the magnaflows but thoes are too quiet.. Any recommendetions will be greatly appreciated.

    I have a flowmaster on mine with LT's and no cats and like it. The best system I've heard to date was LT's, no cats, and a GMMG. That thing was a beast.

    I haven't heard the GMMG and yeah my flowmaster sounds good too but I'm looking for something mellower yet powerfull. I've heard this exhaust systems but never had the chance to ask what they have.

    i have a magnaflow catback. i ditched the muffler for a hooker areochamber muffler.
    the reason why i ditched it was because the magnaflow was raspy. i do have headers and a off road pipe.
    the aerochamber is a nice deep mellow tone.

    I've had Flowmaster on an LS1 and LT1 T/A's. I put the Hooker on my current LS1 and love it. At first it seemed a little too tame but it got about right after a few thousand miles. It really sounds good since I installed the LT's. I'll never buy another flowmaster.

    Just the answers I was looking for. Hey nhra. how diffrent is it from the magnaflow. Is it deeper? mellower? is it louder? That's another brand that i was looking into. Thanx for the help so far.

    I have Flowmaster too with LTs and no cats and it does sound pretty good, but on the other hand it doesnt "Flow" worth a crap. I am also in the market for another muffler that sounds good but also flows good.

    the hooker is more deep and less raspy.

    I have pacesetter longtubes offroad y-pipe and a hooker catback here is a burnout clip to give you an idea of the deepness it has and at idle it is just perfect!

    I have the hooker catback too...Love the sound, nice and mellow at cruising and aat WOT I also have an Ecutout when I feel like being loud. So I got the best of both worlds.

    2nd Ls1, 2nd Hooker LTs ORY, and Aerochamber exhaust... this hawk came with the loudmouth and hated it, now this thing sounds sweet... people tell me they didn't think a newer car could sound so mean

    Too Quiet? All the louder exhausts and open headers sound like shit IMO... Loudmouth was nice until longtubes were put on

    When I got my car it already has SLP LT's, offroad Y, and the Hooker setup. The tips are awesome, and it sounds like a Cobra with full offroad exhaust, as far as smoothness and deep tone. The only thing I don't like about the Hooker is that I wish it was Stainless Steel. The Magnaflow has the look I want (polished SS), but I don't want to get rid of the sound of the Hooker. That mothaf*cka sounds RAW.

    I got a cam in it too, and when I go to work in the morning I let it warm up, leave the front door open, I can hear it counting off and choppin outside like it's ready to RUMBLE!!!

    The tone changes at about 4000 rpm on my car. It is real smooth and mustang like up until 4K, then it morphes into full-on big block power mode and it will make the hair stand up on your neck from 4000 to 6500 rpm. Gotdamn that b*tch is RAW!
