There is no "best" one, its really what sounds best to you they are all within a few hp of each other. Your basic aftermarket H pipe (catted or not catted) to the catback of your choice. Stock manifold on 96-04 cars are not restrictive so they don't really need to be replaced unless they are physically compromised.

Yeahh you're gonna get a bunch of SLP nutswingers on this site.

I'm running a Bassani O/R X into a Magnaflow catback (not the Magnapacks)

Best exhaust Setups

I used to run SLP loudmouth 1s on my car and at first I liked them but then they slowly annoyed me, I then found Borla stinger cat back on sale and ordered it and absolutely love it! Wouldn't go back I also run Pacesetter longtubes and O/R X pipe.... I don't want to talk about the fitment........ But the sound is great. But don't ever go cheap!

i live in ca . so long tubes probably wouldn't be best choice because I wouldn't want to install and remove every two years. X pipe will probably be easier because easier to access to reinstall smog legal pipes. Are summit racing mufflers any good.?

Longtubes are illegal in the socialist republic of California. When you are talking about a X pipe, that doesn't have anything to do with the headers though. I mean it DOES in the fact that if you have longtubes you need a shorty mid pipe vs a standard one like you would get. What you would want with the stock manifolds is a regular H or X pipe to a catback of your choice.

And as far as the Summit mufflers. They actually are very good mufflers. Chambered ones sound similar to flowmasters, the turbo ones sound similar to magnaflows. I prefer the straight through (turbo) mufflers because they cut down on the drone on the highway but its honestly all personal preference since all the performance mufflers are pretty close power wise. I mean the Summit mufflers aren't stainless or anything but for $20/each you can't beat them for value.

No it isn't. I did the mid-pipe shuffle every 2 years when I had my 95. Takes 45 minutes to swap it so swap in the morning. Drive to the station, swap back when you get home. Or just get a mid pipe with some high flow cats and never worry about it. There is not going to be any sort of power difference between a good high flow catted pipe and OR. Not at the power level a NA 2V is making.
