    I'd say yes. Can't beat that dual sound.

        It's a little pricey (~$1500 IIRC), but I LOVE my Hooker Blackheart system. If you already have LT's, then it's even cheaper just to get the TD portion. I have the midlengths and the TD's and I am more than pleased.

          Maybe they've dropped since then - they appear to be between $783 and $999 on Summit Racing.

            He bought the mid length headers and the true duals. The true dual part is around $800

                Coastfab is a lot cheaper than those catbacks, much lighter too

                  I'm pretty happy with how the Borla cat back sounds on my car. I get a lot of compliments regarding the sound specifically. It crackles and pops on decel quite a lot when it's cold, and much less when warmed up. I like that though. It's not the raspy crackle like a typical glasspack, at least not IMHO. It took me a while to figure out what the hell was going on with the pipe layout, since the right pipe doesn't go into the muffler at all. I later learned that it's adjustable, and there are supposed to be 4 plates you can install behind the right tailpipe. Closed, 1/4 open, 1/2, 3/4 and full open. Haven't checked to see which is in mine, but based on the loudness, I'm guessing it's the fully open plate. It doesn't get too loud until you get over around 2500 RPM. Even 2000 can drone a bit on the highway, but 80+mph is comfortable in 6th.

                  Not a cheap system, when bought new though.

                  That all said, I'd sure love to do true duals, long tubes, and a cam... and mostly for the sound. Right now, I'd say she sounds naughty, but still little refined or even exotic maybe. I'd like to get it closer to all out raunchy. I have to be careful there though, as I think it's currently bearable for my wife, but may not before if I get carried away with it. I have a feeling the kids get the worst of it, sitting in the back.
