    Hooker Catback W/Long Tubes

    So my car went from being pretty quiet at wot to extremely loud. I have never had a catback in the past that woke up so much from a simple header swap. Anyone else have this experience with this cb?

    I used to have it and I loved it.

    Swapped it out for a 4" Mufflex to compliment my H/C/I Swap better.

    My friend refered to it as "horrorfying" when I rev it up. Its almost as loud as my friends LM on stock manifolds but its very deep and has no rasp. It sounds unreal. Still cant believe that it got about 10x louder lolz

    Hooker Catback with Longtubes

    I got hooker catback with coated pacesetters, no cats and off road ypipe, it is loud, but in a good way, just had a cam put in and its louder yet.. Good thing is I have not experienced any droan. Mine is a convertible so you got to keep your foot out of it if you want to have a conversation. I love the damn thing.. when your in a hotrod, no conversation needed I say.. Tell my wife that.. LOL

    I have BBK LT's, ORY, Cutout and Hooker Muffler and its extremely loud above 3k RPMS. I have bikers giving me a thumbs up when they go by, lol. I love the sinister growl it makes when cruising at 2100-2400rpms. At 4th gear or 5th and low rpms when you floor it, it sounds like a machine gun goin off.

    I've got the same exhaust, love it. Also have an E-cutout and usually have it cracked about 1/4 of the way, sounds really good IMO.

    Thanks for the video. That's pretty darn loud. Sounds good though.
    My factory dual/dual SLP setup with an off road Y and long tube headers isn't nearly as loud as yours.

    Your AFR is up in the 13.5 range, pretty lean. Was that read with a tailpipe sniffer or a bung up near the header??
