The sound is 100% subjective. I've had mine described as "nasty, and not in a good way", but it makes me tingle every time I hear it... so yeah. You really need to hear it in person if at all possible.

OP, do you have an LLT or LFX? You can't run headers on an LFX (2012+ is LFX).

This is very hard to judge. Videos suck to base on it because of the equipment used and trying to make it a digital sound. Personally, ask in your local section of forum who has what, and see if they will let you listen to it in person. After a few tries at this to various car shows, I found a setup I liked, and waited until I found a good deal on it. At first I had SLP lm I setup. That was fine until I saw the deal I was waiting for. Now I have TSP headers with magnaflow x-pipe, mids and cat back. It's nice, and surprisingly not crazy obnoxious for being 3" from headers back.

What year is the 1lt? If it is 2012-2013 then close the thread because no headers for you.

Totally agree with this. We're all going to have different opinions on what sounds good, it's the same thing with wheels, we all have our preferences on what we like and what we want to hear. Some guys like low and deep exhausts that sound mean, and some guys like a higher pitched, more raspy system that sounds like a race car, it's all going to change depending on preferences.

So just like zkdreads said, look up different combos on youtube and see what you think, just listen to them, don't take any opinions on what sounds better, because you hear things differently than other guys.

In a couple of other threads he has said his car is a 2012, so headers are not an option.

OP, look at the sticky threads in this section. There is one that describes why you can't have headers on your car. Scratch this mod off your list.
