I agonized over this decision for months last year and wound up going with the Magnaflow Street catbacks in July. I selected them seeking the deeper and mellower sound because I expected to open up the flow with at least a future midpipe replacement, which most accounts seem to say further increases the sound volume while decreasing the tone.

I've been very happy with them and am now trying to decide on a highflow catted midpipe replacement.

I guess I have two questions for Siber and anyone else who's been down this path:
1. What aspect of the Magnaflows left them off the short list when anticipating the headers later - and was it specific to the shorties or would it have been the same consideration with LT's?

2. Should I expect a pretty good improvement via the butt dyno and throttle response with only the highflow cats and retune, or is it only nominal without the headers?

My friend has the Magnaflows with long tubes and a catted X Pipe and it is too loud for my tastes. Although if you left the stock cats and only ran shorties it would not be as loud and would be deeper.
As for the Magnaflows not being on the short list for me was just because I wanted it a little quieter. So it was the Touring, either the Borla or FRPP.

Thanks, Siber.
Been a long week at work, but found a few minutes yesterday to get the BBK ceramic coated shorties ordered.
Gonna spice up the commute a little!
Figured I would start with those and see how long before I "need" to expand the midpipes/cats to 2.5", too.

I still have the Stock Cats but do have the FRPP Cut and Clamp X-Pipe. 1 Thing I have found with the 3.7 is it needs back pressure. I had a set of Magnaflow Competitions (Muffler Deletes) on mine and it fell on its face in the lower to mid range but did pick up some on the top, it all came back after the stock mufflers went back on.
Since I do not go fast in a straight line and prefer the mountains keeping all the torque I can get out of it was important.

I got the Borla S-type for mine. I always get compliments on the sound. It has that nice gurgle when down-revving.

I did not want real loud but you can hear it coming
That sounds Great! When I change my exhaust I don't want it too loud either.
