are you going to run cats? i would recommend 2 chamber flowmaster if you are going to run cats, 3 chamber with an off road h pipe. basically its a volume difference, you could run 2 chambers with an off road, but it would be pretty loud. my 3 chamber setup with off road h pipe is loud enough for me. i think that racing video of mine is too big for a hotmail account. i will record another video soon of a couple revs for you or something....

Mine has the same setup. Two chamber Flows with an offroad H-Pipe. It sounds really deep at idle and when you step on it, it gets pretty loud. Not too bad though, I had a 90 LX with straight pipes back to two chambers and 3.73 gears. It would be so loud at 65 - 70, you would have to yell to hear over it. I think the H-Pipe makes quite a bit of difference in how loud it is inside the car.

My 95 had DynoMax cat back, MAC Hpipe w/cats and MAC shorties. The sound is not loud. I have heard a 95 with stock headers, Bassini Xpipe and 2 chamber flowmasters. This car I can hear 3 blocks away. I did some work on it and when I took it for a test drive the interior noise was horrible. I would not like to drive that to a car show. My 95 now has MAC full length headers, MAC Pro chamber and the same cat back. This produces a nice sound. What I have found is the loudest are the flowmaster 2 chambers. Any H or Xpipe without cats is loudest. As far as performance unless they have dyno numbers before and after it would be hard to tell. One thing is for sure you can tell the difference in the sound. If all you want is sound then flowmaster 2 chambers and run no cats.

Just a reminder from your friendly local tree hugger, removal of cats is a Federal offense..

My 94 has a MAC catback, relativly cheap and a pretty good sound. You don't want to sit in the back seat for long on the highway because, like flowmasters, they have a bad drone..
My 99 has a magnaflow catback, top notch in my book.

How do you like the sound of your Mac system? I need new tailpipes for my Cobra and I thought that I might as well get a full catback. Do they sound like Flowmasters at all?

MagnaFlow. Period. Best horsepower/sound for the buck with an IRS. DynaFlow, If your doing this with a Solid 8.8. Oh, same horsepower./sound...sorry ALWAYS have to get the most horsepower for the buck, after all this is the bottom line, right? I mean i REALLY sound cool if i'm pulling this person in a straight line. Ask my ladyfriends. All agree, :)
