    What is the best exhaust for the 2nd gen Lightning? For sound? Performance? Does anyone have the flowmaster system? Exhaust will most likly be my first mod to the lightning. :coolman:

    unless you get one chamber flows and a x-pipe go with a magnaflow catback. The flowmaster catback is not that loud. I ran it on my 00 for a while and was quiet. The tips look nice but that is it.

    Silver Bullit for price and sound :)
    Bassani is good for added weight (nearly twice as much as SB) and for clearing out your wallet. :uh oh:

    (had them both)

    I went with a pair of welded in Magnaflows and some 3.5" black chrome on stainless steel tips. I love the sound, and the throttle response felt better.

    Here are the pics:

    You need to get 2 one chamber racing Flows with H pipe and you should be good. That's what I'm switching over from the Borla I have.

    Thank you all. I am looking for one that sounds a little louder than stock but will not drive me nuts after a month. Also price is a huge factor.

    I have a corsa exhaust system and it sounds extremely well. Worth looking into.

    I would never put Flowmaster's on anything, worst exhaust in my opinion. I went with the Bassani BX series and I got it for right around $400 new from Mark at LFP. Magnaflow is nice, but it sounds the same no matter what you put it on, you can always tell when a car or truck has magnaflow exhaust. I Borla sounds pretty good as well, and it is cheap.
