I would vote to price all three out and go with the cheapest- they are all good solid choices. Also, do you mean "SCT"?

Its really gonna boil down to a matter of preference (for brand and sound) and cost. A custom setup will cost more $ while the rest will probably be less money and hassle. Realistically you'll see about the same gains across the board.

??? What?? The only thing that is cheaper the a custom exhaust right now is the Pacesetter cat back. My custom with magnaflow, 2.5" cat back and tips was right at $375. The borla sells for almost $800. The Pacesetter is at $250 IIRC.

Get it custom made at a shop.

Cant go wrong with PS, at ~$270 and you can install it yourself in your driveway its hard to go wrong.

I dont care what anyone says, Borla is overpriced by a long shot. You can buy headers, flex and cat for about that much.

I have Magna Flow. It goes pretty good. To be honest, the guy at the shop said adding catback really isn't worth the money. So I just got the muffler and dual tips. I paid like $365.00 or something for mine.

Its worth it depending on what you have done to your car. If you just want a different sound then yea changing the muffler and tips is a great thing.

pacesetter all the way. I think it looks the best, and its by far the cheapest.

Yeah, Borla is definitely overpriced. I've heard good things about Pacesetter and Magnaflow though, and their prices are cheaper.

Flowmaster is far better than magnaflow as far as quality goes, from what I've seen on here the 4 banger guys prefer the Flowmaster 40 Series, and the v6's prefer the Flowmaster 80 Series.
