Ive narrowed it down to...
Vibrant, will it sound too loud on an auto?
Thermal R+D, love the quality but how does it sound? anyone???
I'm leaning towards Magnaflow (cue the applause) but does it come COMPLETE with all necessary hardware? I'm planning the install myself.
Thanx 'jet

Vibrant=loud!!

Thermal=SWEET and QUIET!!
Magnaflow=Bang for the buck.

If I had the money to do it over again I would have gone thremal. I have the Vibrant now. I can't say anything on the Magnaflow though.

I have the bosal and it is awesome to say the least. Looks great, sounds sweet without being too loud, and its built like a tank... Bosal all the way!

I have the Vibrant and love it. It is rather lour at certain RPMs but at other points you can't even hear it. I installed it myself and it only took like a half hour. Very high quality product, and yes it comes with everything you need.

I've got the Borla and it is excellent. All hardware was included and install was a snap once I cut of the stocl. Sound is great, not too loud. With the IceMan/FS Cool-Flo combo intake it is quite a bit louder. My money would still go to Borla again.

Covert1 is stock.
Odyssey has done NO engine mods, JUST the Bosal catback. I don't have TOO many mods. See my sig for details...

I'm a die hard Magnaflow fan myself. Got em on both our Foci. Nice and quiet with a smooth mellow exhaust note, no droning what so ever.


The thermal, bosol, and borla all sound great too so it's just a personal choice.

ill add my say :thumbup Get the borla, although i have never worked with any other exhaust, it is loud enough that u notice it inside under full acceleration, yet quiet enough as to not bother the heck out of you when you are cruising. People do notice the nice deep note it hits. The borla offers great gains in h.p. and comes with everything needed to install, w/ the exception of a new gasket, and i do not believe any company supplies those. Anyone want to correct me on that
..welcome to the jet harry
