Thanx for the info. I think I am leanings towards Stella. We will see

I am trying to find performance stat differences to justify spending the extra money for a Stella but am having a hard time. Does anyone feel like the increase in price is due to aspects other than performance. You know Brand Name, aesthetics, ect. Or have I just not come across the information I am looking for yet?

From that experience, I was leaning towards the Magnaflow catback because I don't plan on doing much aside from intake/exhaust.

I am just woried that the FSWerks would drone as it is a 2.5"... what's everyones thoughts?

TL:DR - Magnaflow or FSWerks Stealth Catback?

Sounds raspy and ricey to me more than the FSWerks.

Personally I'd go custom or FSwerks, but the FSWerks still allegedly has some drone, and I haven't fully experienced it in person yet so idk.

matmatician Anything much bigger than 2.5 and I'd have to start looking into backpressure. I think you wouldnt have any issues, but if you want a deeper sound off of a 2.5" setup, you could always add a resonator...

Maybe if some one has a better recording it might not actually sound as bad, but I'm not a fan of the so called professional recording from magnaflow for our cars.

Thats what I ended up going with, I'll let everyone know how it came out after I'm done

wantz12 I have the K&N Typhoon, and while I love it, I'd recommend the Steeda. K&N uses the stock MAF housing and it has a tendency to crack if you overtighten the filter.

matmatician There may not be one around right now. They usually have some kind of discount around holidays. Seeing as how the next one is Valentines day though... I don't think they're gonna do anything for it.
