Looking at the magnaflow exhaust

Well I'm on a budget, so i saw a 2.5 in magnaflow exhaust with the hi flow cat in the classifieds, but I just had a couple questions. This may sound stupid, but are the gains from this exhaust equivalent to the fswerks exhaust? Also, I'm not really a fan of the sound so I was wondering if the stealth pipe from fswerks would help quiet it down, or if there is any other pipe that would help with that. Also, does the hi flo cat really add gains or would it be better to leave that stock. I'm hoping to get this so I can do the tune next :).

I think ur talking about my exhaust well it's gonna be the same gains as the fs werks 2.5 inch mandrel bent and u can ditch the hf cat and put another muffler or glass pack and that would quiet it down

If your going for an exhaust system= 2.5'' mandrell bent pipes w/ either a magna flow or stealth. Forget the hi flow cat as you already have a mani/cat. What other mods do you have?

Get the whole exhaust system kit, not just a muffler. Its a waste of time & cash, since you have a ST to begin w/.
