pacesetter exhaust

for all the negativity that comes from a majority of people about the pacesetter catback exhaust.... i can safely say that i love mine. it was not pricey, install was easy, and it sounds great.....

That ain't bad for 400, if it lasts and doesn't drone you've made a solid choice. Any sound clips of it idling and at takeoff?

I like the sound of the Pacesetter, my opinion and I also like the sound of the Pypes Exhaust system for the 3.6L 5th Gen

Are the pypes and the pacesetter the cheapest cat backs available on the 3.6L?
