GITUSOM - Did you install your catback system before or after you installed the LTs and High Flow Cats? I am about to buy the same catback system but have stock headers and cats. I am trying to find out if anyone has this setup and if there is drone at cruising speeds (65-80)?

I had the catback before. There is minimal drone at those speeds, however keep in mind I have the AFM off. Not sure if that would make a difference at that speed or not.

This is a very subjective question. It all depends on what you want from an exhausts' tone... Me personally, I like to be able to "have fun" and NOT have my exhaust give me away to those that would ruin my day....

I went from no cans on a stock system w/shorties (pretty raspy) to a 3" Magnaflow Competition Series w/ shorties (CA smog legal)... It has tone but it's really deep and hard to pinpoint from afar according to my buds. They say they feel the car coming vs hearing it! Works for me....
