Re: MagnaFlow or Gibson cat back kit?
why not buy anymother you want and get prebent tail piupe from the exhaust shop. most shops have pre bent mandrel 3" pipe hanging on the walls in difrent exit angles. normaly they have 45 and 90 degre bends where the pipe exits at the rear.
ive gone this route about 3 times now. just think if i was spending the cash it takes to get a cat back kit 3 times.
as far as mufflers go ive pretty much decided they all work. ive ran flowmaster, spinteck, magnaflow, vortech, flowtech, glass packs, turbo, straight pipe,
ive also ran with no tail pipe, tail pipe exiting in front of the rear tire, and a full tail pipe exiting behind the tire.
ive dicided a tail pipe is better than no tail pipe, a good flowmaster cant hardly be beat for sound, ive only ever ran the 3" single.
next set up will be headers and dual flowmasters. spitting through 2.5" pipes tide together with an x pipe and exiting under the truck just past the rear axle. that way i get atleast a few feet of tail pipes and its not so prone to getting drig across rocks and little cars.
