Question Cat Back System...

Ok, so I want to order my cat back system, but the think is that to be honest I'm not too sold on the Gibson, and seems to be the best, or easy option, I like Borla better, what do you guys think the best option would be? should I go with the universal Borla and keep the tubing? or get the Gibson that actualy has a bigger tube? If I end up getting the Gibson it would be stanless... I don't want to get the universal Borla and had a shop make new tubing because of the whole bending thing. What is your opinion???

P.S. I'll be adding the AFE CAI step 2 Any opinion on the filter? wet or super dry? any one had any problems with the wet one?


Before any one says any thing, I have used the search and seem the post on this....

To get the whole effect you need the larger pipe, the performance difference is going to be nill between the two brands, get the best price and sound you like.

I gotta agree with a49erFootballFan. Complete cat backs do have their advantages like the tubing is larger and tend to be more fitting and less extreme angles which really improve your gains. Your best bet is to stay within your budget and likes. Cause otherwise you will kick yourself in the going I should of got option A.
