    i personally dont like gibson too much..........just my opinion though. im a flowmaster guy myself. instead of paying alot for a catback system, why not just pick out the muffler that you want, then get a muffler shop to cut out the stock muffler and weld in your new muffler?? its essentially the same thing, except its not gonna be fully stainless(unless you get a stainless muffler), and it will be alot cheaper. you can even get them to weld on a stainless tip to make it look good. thats what i, along with alot of others have done....as i went with a flowmaster original 40 muffler. here is my sound clip........

    yeah I like fowmaster too, had it on my V8 dodge. But I really dont think it will sound that great on my 3.4 V6. But thats just my opinion, I also thought about the magnaflow system.
