    I have a 3.8 98 Camaro. I know I know...its not a V8...but unless you wanna pay my insurance, shush /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I'm lookin at the Flowmaster American Thunder series catback for improved gas mileage + better performace + sound + looks. I can get the whole set up + installation for about 400. Anyone have any experience with this or any other suggestions on a comparable or better option?!? Thanks !

    Just about any of them will be an improvement over stock flow wise , they all just have different looks or sound as far as I'm concerned /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    BTW Did you turn 18 yet so we can hook up and race ( when I don't have a blown transfercase ) /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    [/ QUOTE ]Find yourself a good used 350 (V-8) for it. Just don't tell your insurance company.

    Yea, thats the plan for the future! But I was researching it and don't you need a new transmission and some other small odds and ends?

    [/ QUOTE ]Depends on if you want too keep the factory computer or not. Personally, I'd loose it. If you can find a wrecked car cheap enough for a donor car, that can save you quite a bit of money.
