    flowmaster is the loudest, then borla, then magnaflow. Stay away from flowmaster though, for ls1's, they flow like crap and people have seen performance losses with that system. I have magnaflow and love the sound, especially with lt's.

    Borla....Flow (which they don't)....Magnaflow


    Not 100%. Just based off cars I have heard in person. The Borla one probably had longtubes making it louder or something.

    I have the magnaflow with LT's and a ORY and I think its the best non true dual setup for the f-body's.
    But back to the question I would say Flow's, Borla, and then Magna. The Magnaflow is very tame until you get up in the range and then it makes a very nice sound. That's the only time I want it to be loud anyways.

    i have borla adjustable system on mine and it sounds good, deep tone to it and pretty loud, putting hooker LTs on with ORY soon, but back to the question i would say borla, magnaflow, flowmaster.
