Bassani or Heartthrob Exhaust?

I like them both, as well as the Borla ATAK System (just a little over my budget though), but i cant figure out which i should go with between Bassani or Hearththrob! which do you guys think would be best on performance on sound?

the Borla is the best for performance and sound for sure. I have Bassani and LOVE it. Sounds amazing but I also have long tube headers 3" exhaust, x-pipe, and high flow cats... Not sure what the performance increase would be with just the mufflers.

Get the borla! Or the bassani, but save your money and get the full catback system...the mufflers do nothing but give you a better sound..

i am a big fan of the bassani sound. whatever axle backs and mid pipe you buy - buy it for the sound and any hp you get is gravy.

Your right if you don't want extra power just get an axleback for sound.

Bassani sounds great.
Heartthrob sounds like Bassani but, with a deeper tone.
Heartthrob will make more power and leave you money for more mods.

Exept the heartthrob has major fitment issues and leaking issues so you will have to spend more
Money on getting it welded together! And risk hitting on the axle and other things and causing dented pipes...

Not if you install it right. I have had no issues at all.

I keep seeing posts with people saying, "I should have gone to a better shop the first time".

I've also seen pictures of pipes installed wrong.

Are you sure you didn't see 15 posts from the same 2 or 3 people?
