I'm running the cat back system and love it. I get tons of compliments on the sound. They get a little loud from time to time but absolutely no drone. As far as price, I have no clue. I have never been a fan of buying used exhaust, you really don't know how long you have until you burn the packing out. With the exception to Flow masters and Hooker's comp series cans. jmo

Thank you, never thought about the burn packing out. I need to look into this more.

Anyone know how long these mufflers go for?

Stock it shouldn't be too bad, with full exhaust and a cam it's pretty loud. But I like it that way!

Remove the mid muffler and put an x pipe in its place. The drone and vibration sound of the afm at 60-70mph will almost go totally go away. That's my set up and I'm happy with it.

Thank, I wonder if I have seen your GT around here. I have seen a couple of black gts around here. Only one with an exhaust and it was sexy. A lot of people try to race you with the exhaust noise around here? Hopefully no one tries to race me on the streets lol it's to dangerous for me. Any tracks nearby?

You can pick one up on ebay for about $40. You'll need a 2.25" I'd recommend it, it sounds much better.

Like that one at amazon? I'm finding a lot of 2.25" x pipes not sure which one is correct lol. Il prolly just end up buying this xpipe and install both at the same time to save some money.

Besides helping with drone an x-pipe helps with exhaust pulses and makes the gases exit "cleaner" which results in more HP

Hmmm never knew that thank!

Today I was in a different car following my G8 car and the magnaflow wasnt't noticeable loud at all I couldn't hear much from my G6 maybe a couple times when my friend got on the acceleration. Isn't it suppose to be loud where other cars can hear it?
