I like my magna flow on my 2.7 liter. Also switched to a high flow cat makes it alot louder.

It just depends on how much you want to spend and how loud you want it. Borla is the most expensive....then Flowmaster.....and Magnaflow.
Flowmaster and Magnaflow are very similar but in my opinoin Flowmaster is better quality. I've heard a Gibson catback single in/single out setup on an 06' 4.0 and wasnt too loud but he said it gave him a little more performance.

How long are your turndowns and what size tubing are you running from the cat back? Also, hows the interior noise?

There pretty short i should have got 11" ones but i forgot to ask oh well can always get them later, and i think its 3" because stock on an 07 is 2.5 i think, but i can 'feel' that the back pressure went down. As for the cabin noise is not to bad when just driving around town the same when your on the highway as long as you keep it below 75, but it does get loud in the cabin when you really punch it.

Thanks, I may give that a try. I plan on buying the muffler separate, i've located a Borla for just $105 bucks. I'll just have a local muffler shop tie it in...

Yeah i would i thought it would be an arm and a leg to have them do it but i was wrong and it only took them one hour from when i walked in to when i drove out which is way faster than i could have done.
