the flowmaster will enhance the exhaust sound of your car, and help it flow a bit better, but youd never notice it...BUT most people use the Flowmaster designed for the Firebird/Camaro, and if you decide to do this youll need a reducer of some sort, that particular flowmaster is a 2.5 inch inlet, and your car has 2.25 inch piping....there are a few memebers running these, and there are some sound clips available, im sure someone will chime in with some links for you

a high-flo catalytic converter, will replace your existing catalytic converter while still allowing you to pass emissions, it will flow much better then the stock one, and should yield a gain in performance, the cat is the second most restrictive component in the exhaust so replacing it is usually a good idea if you want better performance, although some would disagree...it should also make your exhaust a bit louder

but i would suggest an intake.as have others. it should give you a noticeable gain in performance as well as a change for the better in engine sound.

if your interested in a flowmaster, here'* a video clip... i just had mine put on a few weeks ago and have loved it more every day. some members also use a magnaflow muffler, but there is a lot of debate as to which one sounds better. It'* really just a matter of personal opinion. I for one am SUPER happy with the flowmaster. I got mine on E-bay for 65 dollars, and it only costs around 40 to install at most muffler shops. Here'* the link to the video clip: http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...262&highlight=

If your interested in the flowmaster, the model number that most people use is: 42583, it'* a muffler designed for a camaro or firebird, but it works on our cars too.
