    How much do you want to spend? That has a lot to do with it...If you manna drop big time cash, look at Borla. Otherwise, I like Flowmaster and Gibson just to name a few.

    I have a Flowmaster cat back Force 2 system on my 89 along with a Catco high flow converter. I got it all from Summit Racing Equiptment and it works and sounds great. Cost a little over $300 for everything to your door and you can install it yourself.

    "Sounds great"

    You mean you can hear a 3 chamber with a Cat? Flowmasters must be WAY different than when I had one. I had a single 2 1/4" one once with no cat and it was so quiet you could hardly hear it.

    I say go with a Dynomax dual kit and your choice of mufflers, if you can get away with it where you live.

    Ya it sounds great, mellow at idle and throaty when on it. Whoever said the crap about not being able to hear it is full of $hit and does not know what the hell they are talking about.

    Depending on your budget, there are choices.
    For cheap, I'd go with a single 3 inch setup, catback, from Gibson, PaceSetter or if the wallet is deeper then Borla (very pricey).
    For true power, dual 2.5 inch system, with a crossover and Flowmaster mufflers.
    For even bigger power, I like DynoMax headers, those semi-legal high-flow cats, then a dual 2.5 inch crossover system with Flowmasters.
    The Flowmaster 40 series are loud, and personally I run the 50 series, a bit more mellow but still barks when you stomp on it, but not annoying as a daily driver.
    Of course the BEST system is to go with a pre-77 and then no cats required [​IMG], but................

    what kind of motor are you running and are you wanting HP gains or more torque gains? Is your motor 'tinkered' with at all? What kind of sound are you after?

    Don't hit me, Mr. Moderator... I'll go back on topic... I swear![​IMG]
