Cherry Bomb catback mufflers for the SS look a lot like the Flowmaster 10 series. I believe they are aluminum steel type. Flowmaster has moved to stainless on their products if that matters to you. I've had Flowmaster on several cars, most recently weld in Super 44's. There was very little drone in 6th gear only with my stock setup. I haven't heard the Cherry Bomb in person to know how loud, or how much drone you may encounter.

I had the Cherry Bomb Extreme cat-back. Drone city! I ditched them pretty quick.

I have the Cherry Bombs and love them, I thought drone was an issue, but it was the tunnel brace rub causing the drone to come into the cabin, after a couple of washers to the brace, no more problems or drone.

No drone at highway speed? I drive 3 hours on the highway each weekend and don't want to worry about it too much.

No tunnel brace rub here. The drone was just flat out unbearable on my LS3. It made your head want to pop. This is with the "Extreme" chambered mufflers. Cherry Bomb has other mufflers in their line-up. I don't know what SamHouseIII was using.

I to am interested in this... any one have some sound clips?? I have a tune so im not worred about drone.... Was also looking at magnaflow bullet style mufflers...

My brother in law said I should get super 44's...... Im installing headders and axle back at the same time... sorry for tread jacking.... And yes you have to washer down the tunnel brace about 1/4 inch. the pipes will bang around and drive you crazy if you dont....
