    What is the best sounding setup you guys have heard/bought? I have a 95 auto.

    I have:
    Front 2 cats gutted
    Rear 2 straight pipes
    IMCO Mufflers, I went blank on the model stuff
    I have the stock H pipe on it.
    With side exiting tips.

    I had Flows 40 series on it before; do I need to go back?
    Will buying an H pipe help my sound?
    I am not looking for power/performance gains at all!!!
    Will headers help it at all, too?
    Thanks!!

    It seems like I am forgetting something I just cannot think of it.

    The best exhaust setup I've heard is a Catted X with SLP LM 1s. However, I'm partial to SLP since I have them and everyone will tell you theirs is the best.

    An offroad H with the original 40 series Flows are my second favorite setup.

    I still have to get my SLPII's as soon as I feel ready to spend money again on something other than my house.

    Soon.......soon :boink:

    Why? Ive always used FM's. I think they sound great. I just got an O/R pipe and FM cat backs. Soon as the engine is rebuilt I'll post a clip.

    I was thinking, and I don't know how I smoked this up, that my Mustang type used H pipes and not X's. My exhaust guy said that Magnaflow’s do not have the best sound.
    I am thrown on the cat-back/catted stuff though. What will I need? I am thinking since I do not have my cats it does not imply to me, maybe. Thanks!!
