Ok I am basically looking for a new exhaust, cuase I am getting JR header and I know it will be too loud for me with my Magnaflow system. What do u guys think would be the best system (quiet wise) with a race header? I also just thought about throwing a STOCK type s exhaust on when I put on the race header. What do you guys think, I just dont wanna be EXTREMELY loud. Any and all suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks!

Look into the 5Zigen fireball or the Greddy SP2 system. (I believe thats what its called)
Both sound very similar to stock from what I've read on the board.

Nah test pipe! so I will have no cat! So i was either gonna go with a stock type s system or find sumthing other than magnaflow that wont be as loud with the addition of a race header.

If you buy a race header and just put tour stock system on you are defeating the purpose of the race header.JUst get a full out race exhaust or make your own get a apexi turbo muff and just slap the silencer on.

If you get a race header, then you should buy the Borla. It's, by far, the quietest sounding exhaust. Combined with the race header, I would think it should all average out.

i got my jackson race header and a type S exhaust. Haven't installed it yet..but the reason i'm using the stock TYpe S exhaust is because i don't want any reason for a cop to stop me. I've already been stopped 3 times cuz of my exhaust. If i get caught again and the cop checks that i don't have a cat..then it's a hefty fine to pay. I think it was a $1000..correct me if i'm wrong.
