Hi flo cats in SCV or LA area

I have an LS3 with a CAI and Borla S type Catback. I like the tone, but its kinda weird how at 3500 rpm to 5000 rpm if i let off the gas it seems to be pretty quiet. With more RPM under light throttle, the sound just doesn't scream like a muscle car should.

I Just want it to be louder in cabin and outside. Would the Hi Flo cats do the trick? Anyone out here got some i could listen to? Not in the market for long tubes. Thanks!

Yeah I know, hard to get the right sound level when its more quiet in the car. Its good. I had to add the resonated x pipe to make it deeper and less raspy, and more quiet with the hi flows and outlaw mufflers as was to loud for me, but would like something right in the middle of the two. Thats hard to do! No you will like them, you can hear them just driving normallyat about 2000 on up around town and in traffic, and when you get on it from 2500 on up they are loud. Check out search and you will get other write ups. Neighbors said sounded great with the outlaws but I had alot of decel and wanted it more tame

You could always just go with LT's that would probably get you the sound you're looking for

I myself, have high-flow cats, but I'm running a Magnaflow system. with the high-flow's it did make it louder inside the cabin, but not to where I have to cover my ears.

apex i just removed my JBA high flow cats. with a cai. n i live right here in sylmar. too little too late. i have a muffler delete with 5 inch tips right now n it is fairly loud. but when i did have hf cats n intake in addition to my current set up whoa baby. set off quite a few car alarms. imo an awesome alternative to long tubes without having to tune.

Just installed myself the other day and I absolutely LOVE IT. It was exactly the loudness I was looking for with the Borla S type. Definitely how the Camaro should have came stock. Kinda funny out Camaros have 4 cats stock and mustangs have 2. Ohh well....

And I can totally feel the increase in power too. The thing just pulls and pulls now. Better throttle response and seems like more torque in the 2500 rpm range and up.
