the flow masters are for sure going to be louder but with a cat it will be more reasonable i would bet. sound is a perspective thing though its relative to the driver. i like loud

something o.e. type. if you like quiet you should have let them put on the oe stuff they suggested. even with a cat it will have a little rumble.


im not to sure on the specifics i always go with louder stuff.

as quiet as i will go and only because the wife and daughter didnt want to ride with me before

What if i got the cat installed, and also had a muffler placed after the resonator. Or even replaced the resonator with a muffler.. Think that would help?

If you have flowmasters installed, your not going to quiet them down with a cat or resonator. You need to replace the mufflers to a standard issue quiet muffler.

FLOWMASTER EXHAUST = VERY LOUD! You could put 3 converters inline and its still going to be loud with Flowmaster exhaust.
