Which Cat-Back?

Ok guys and gals, one more question for the day. Which do you think sounds better and is overall a better system: The Flowmaster American Thunder #17157 Split Rear Exit system or the Edelbrock #5652 Split Rear Exit system? I listened to the sounds on Edelbrocks site and liked what I heard. I want something loud and aggressive sounding. I've only had a Flowmaster Force II single system before and it wasn't loud at all [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img]. Anyway, I will be buying TES Headers, new cat, and cat-back system in a few weeks and I want something that sounds good. Even though I'm selling the truck in a few months I still want it to sound good while I'm in it.

Re: Which Cat-Back?

i like the way that the edelbrock system sounded as well. heck, i've saved the sound files for convenient listening enjoyment...hehe [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img] anyhow, i'd go for the edelbrock. who knows, maybe you can get a little discount for getting the complete system.

btw, are you trading in your truck, or are you going to sell it on your own?

Re: Which Cat-Back?

I am going to sell it on my own. Then buy a used truck. Can't afford that new fangled stuff. Anyway, I still like the 88-98 body style better than the new ones. I have pretty much decided on the Edelbrock. Just trying to figure out what to do as far as replacing the cat.

Re: Which Cat-Back?

Any luck finding a hi-po cat yet?

I also just noticed that Summit carries Catco high performance cats. I've heard they are good stuff. Looked at them?

Re: Which Cat-Back?

Yep, I just got my reply back from summit about the Catco. If I get the direct fit it comes with a replacement factory y-pipe already welded on. I figured I could cut that off and weld in the TES headers. Or, I can get a universal fit but then I have to figure out how to get from the back of the cat to the cat back exhaust. Whew, that's alot of typing. Anyway, I'll prob. go with the direct fit, but, is it cali legal? Who knows. God I hate california laws[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/mad.gif[/img]
