JBA vs SW Retro Catbacks

If you have a worthy contender I should consider, let me know.

I'm hooking up to stock cats and headers because of ridiculous CA laws.

I know I will not sound as roaring as the JBA video below with stock, but my hope is to sound similar. Take off is the main thing I like about JBA.

But what do YOU think? Many people I talk to and who listen to these clips like SW better.

Thanks for the help and opinions.

The car in the JBA video is also running headers and high flow cats so your car will sound very different. The car in our video only has the Stainless Works Retro Chambered cat back and a CAI air intake.

Hi Chase, that is what I was thinking, plus his microphone is a lot closer to the pipe plus there is some audio work done (I hear some reverb).

That is why video's are so hard to tell. I know without headers and high flow cats, the JBA or any system, will retain more bass, less rasp and less throaty growl in the top end.

Let me know your thoughts

That's about right. You'll lose a good deal of volume running the stock manifolds too. You can't beat that SW system for sound with the stock manfiolds.

The JBA 3" exhaust without headers sounded great on my car before I got carried away. I would recommend it as it had the perfect exhaust note before I added my other parts. Price was great also from Maryland Speed.

I had the one below in the link and it sounded great.

Long tubes and High Flow cats made everything WAY louder.

It was perfect before I added the other parts.
