Default New Full Exhaust!

Finally am done with my exhaust on my 06. Installed my Pacesetter long tube headers and y pipe in the driveway, took about 5 hours. The only hickup was the stock y-pipe and the first resonator, had to cut it with a hack saw to get that out, other than that everything went smoothly. (craigslist got both for $400, can't beat it!) then Put on my flowmaster 40 and was ready for the exhaust shop to get it welded. There was the problem, it sounded literally like a race truck, talk about "wake up the neighbors", got a new Magnaflow and have the exhaust exit like stock and it is perfect! SO quiet at idle so I still have the "sleeper" status until I get on it. Much different than the Flowmaster sound wise but I'm in love. Gunna get to the track Sat. and will have some timed results and maybe a video for ya'll. Custom exhaust for under $600, I am VERY happy with it

which Magnaflow did you pick? I like my flowmaster sound when I wind it out, but I didnt want the flow 44, and the drone... I like to be able to leave a neighborhood without waking everyone up. This is my grownup ride, I have an old car for those teenage tendencies LOL.

that looks great chefred . I don't have flanges on my cats and don't have the money to buy new ones so I was thinking about deleting them and just getting some non-fouler add-ons to trick the o2 sensors. this would mean doing pacesetter longtubes into their y-pipe thn straight down the truck to the muffler.

correct me if im wrong but im under the impression that the rear o2 sensors (downstream) don't do anything for air/fuel ratio and that they just check the job being done by the cats. cant you technically run without rear o2 sensors as long as you keep the front 2 in place and intact?

thanks for the help
