Exhaust Options

Hey everyone i am on the verge of purchasing a full exhuast system for my L99 Camaro. I am in between the kooks full 3inch system 1 7/8 headers with cats or the kooks 1 7/8 headers with cats and the magnaflow comp 3 inch cat-back. Need some feedback on which system to pick ?

kooks and magnaflow

full kooks 3 inch system

I only have personal experience with the Magnaflow but have heard from owners of KOOKS full system that it does drone some. I don't think it will be that bad and it will all depend on your tolerance of drone and if you drive on the highway more than around town.

I originally had the Magnaflow 2.5" cat-back(muffler delete and resonated x-pipe) with the factory headers and it did have the typical drone in the 1800-2000 range under load. Wasn't any big deal to me because I rarely drove it in the range for any length of time at all.

Now I have the 3" Magnaflow with headers for about a month now and I can say I haven't heard any drone yet and the decel popping has GREATLY reduced. You almost have to listen for it now.

I think the KOOKS full system is going to be a little louder though. Not that the Magnaflow is all that quiet. If you want the louder of the two and can handle a little drone go for KOOKS. If not...and you want a great all around sound go with Magnaflow 3".

With that said....I'm LOVING the sound of my Magnaflow with headers!

I've already decided and im going with magnaflow only reason i considered kooks full system was because i was getting a good deal but i rather get what i want and be happy in the end than save some money and regret my choice later. thanks for the comments everyone................... molsonbrador yes next after exhaust and headers is a kenne bell supercharger or magnusson tvs2300 not sure which to go with yet if anyone has any input on the two superchargers please fill me in.
