    Anyone own or have heard a GT350 with this Catback setup? It sounds pretty good from the videos from what I can tell but that's always hard to judge. I'm between this or the Stainless Works Redline Catback System..

    Sounds quite nice. Removes a ton of the rasp, but keeps the more exotic sound. Quite tame on volume, too. I dig it for a street car

    Thanks for the input. I have been playing the video of the Hooker system and the Stainless Works Redline system back to back constantly and I can't decide. The Hooker sounds like you said, a bit smoother of a sound, more towards the exotic, where the Redline sounds like it's a bit louder (which is fine) with a bit more rasp to it.

    I generally hate the same repetitive exhaust threads but I don't think I've ever really seen anyone with either of these systems so I'm interested in hearing any input. These two are rarely talked about, and Stainless Works usually only gets mentioned when talking about headers/full system.

    I'm not sure about it honestly. Sounds not much different than a stock R or the 350 with the resonators removed.

    Yeah I already have the Corsa X pipe. I'm looking for just a bit more sound. It's nice don't get me wrong, but I want a bit more. I'm wondering if the Stainless Works Redline catback is more what I'm looking for.
