    That's the setup I have and I love it. How come you don't like it?

    understandable. I like the tone they make under throttle but it's all about personal preference I guess.

    SLP loudmouth 1 would be one of the loudest with your set-up. But with the ORY you would run a risk of increased popping and rasp with the sound since the loudmouth 1 only has a resonator. I have stock headers with the ORY and flowmaster 80 and mine is plenty loud for me! It's actually painful to my ears to drive past 2500 rpm!

    Do you have LT headers and ORY??

    Most people can't stand that setup (LT/ORY/LM1), its extremely loud and raspy.

    If he doesn't like the Magnaflow, I seriously doubt he's going to like the Loudmouth.

    I've never heard a sound difference between brands of LT headers. They all sound the same pretty much, maybe with the exception of the SLP long tubes, since they are equal length primaries.

    Just out of curiosity how loud do want it. I have the exact same set up and here's a couple clips of mine. I think its plenty loud.

    I say you just take off the exhaust and headers and run 8 tubes the come from the block out of your hood, Then you would be cool, Right?

    If you've got the money, I'd suggest Mufflex.

    B&B, it's pricey, but with headers and an ORY, it sounds like an exotic car. Very very deep without ever hurting your ears.

    I prefer my TSP True Duals (sweet thunder mufflers). docile at idle and loud as hell at WOT. Pick up some extra ponies due to the X pipe also. They hook right up to the Pacesetter LT's.
