    1. No you cannot put stock cats on with Lt's.
    Im assuming your refering to mufflers when you say High flow or resonators. High flow will be more tame and most likely sound better than a resonator. Ie the loudmouth system uses resonator instead of a high flow muffler.

    Might want to consider something like a magnaflow catback or the borlamouth options, the gmmg sounds good but is a little pricey for me.
    ls1sounds.com has some clips

    Its loud but does sound good, raspy as well, but not near as raspy as longtubes+ORY+loudmouth.

    duals generally has much less rasp than y pipe. if you have the money this might be the way to go.
