    Quick ez question.

    Exhaust wise I did things alittle backwards but this is my question, is catback even worth it at this point ? On my car now I have pacesetter LTs, ORY pipe, and a QTP electric cutout dumping right after the cat, should I even put money into a catback system at this point ? I drive with the cutout open 99% of the time anyways and I feel the gain would be so small I doubt its worth spending the $600+ on a catback system now, besides a small change in the sound I dont see the point, let me know what you guys think......

    Thanks, Justin

    since you usually drive with the cutout open (assuming you love that sound), i woudnt worry about it. spend your money elsewhere. . . some other good performance parts could be bought with $600+ . . . intake or suspension upgrades?

    I alrady got most of that done lol the next step is to build up the bottom end and then add H/C, just wanted to confirm my beliving that catback at this point would be a waste overall.....

    Yeah I just might do that if anything, the guy who had the car before me added some sort of muffler it was over three years ago so I cant remember, but it was a cheep ass muffler prolly needs to go anyways.

    you'd prolly gain some decent power if you put some TD's on it and you can get them easily for under $600

    especially since it sounds like your cutout is after your y

    I thought about going with the X pipe but my exhaust guy talked me out of it due to I dont think he knew how to or wanted to go over the rear axle so the Y pipe is going to work just fine plus the gain between an X and Y are within at least 10hp from one another so not a huge difference....

    I've heard several cars with just the magnaflow and even the stock tips. Sounds alot better than the factory muffler. Good Luck.

    The muffler wont really make much of a sound change at this point I just want to have a good full exhaust system, just on the fence about buying catback.....
