Arrow Can't Decide on a Cat Back

I've seen a ton of videos and I still can't make up my mind.

I was leaning towards the Magnaflow 2.5" Comp Series cat back. I've seen some good videos of it and some bad videos of it. So I wasn't sure how it would turn out. Can people who have the 2.5" Comp Series post some good videos? I've seen all of the videos on this website.

Any other cat backs that sound deep and have that muscle car growl? I also liked the Solo Mach-XL and the SLP 3" cat back with the x-pipe (in the video).

And keep in mind I have an automatic SS (L99).

I bought the Pypes version last week. After watching many videos and spending a huge amount of time, it sounded the best to me.

SLP Loudmouth would be the way to go if you want a muscle car sound.

Have you heard the catback exhaust kit from B&B. Check it out see if you like it. Great sounding exhaust.

Are these the same cat backs? They don't sound like each other when they're revving them.

Here's a video of my Borla Stinger cat-back. I love the deep rumble. A lot of the others were to high and "raspy" for me.

If I had to do it all over, (got the street series magnaflow), I would just remove the stock mufflers and save $$

I am very happy with the SOLO system as well. Sounds and looks great with a deep rumble and no drone when cruising at highway speeds.

I really like the sound of the pypes system and the $491.00 pre production was a great deal until I ready about their quality issues do a google search and read the horror stories on the mustang boards about poor fit, finish and leaks. I am hoping that things have changed as this is one of the best sounding systems out there. Please let us know how the fit and fit is?
