^ +1. I prefer the sound of an H pipe too.

Not the loudest, but I bought the GT 500 Ford Racing axle-backs from American Muscle, and they sound perfect. Nice idle rumble, loud when you get on it. Painted them black so they hide better.

They're pretty inexpensive too.

For a deeper tone and improved flow, check out a catted ProChamber mid-pipe. You can keep the FM 44's. Opinions aren't worth much, so check out alot of you tube videos and see if you agree.
I think you will.

I had a pro chamber on my car with cats for awhile. I honestly hated it. It was quieter than both the X and H pipes were with the same mufflers (so quiet at idle it sounded like the factory exhaust), and the drone with it was unbelievable. I then ran it without cats and it was just stupid loud. But that was just my experience. I've heard a few clips of S197's with pro chambers, and done right they do sound good.

It's almost impossible for 2 cars to have the same exhaust system. Different manufacturer cats, headers, size piping, location of components, ect.
I don't know anything different but I had Magnaflow mini hi-flow cats welded directly into the inlet of ProChamber. After market hi-flow cats should not muffle the exhaust tone so much that it sounds stock, not at all.
*Stock headers, hi-flow cats, ProChamber, keep FM 44's- Should sound pretty tight!

Mine had Magnaflow cats on it too, not that same kind but small ones.

It just seemed quiet to me...especially compared to the H or X pipe. I'm sure at full throttle it was loud but at idle and low rpm's it was very quiet.
