cat back will give you the sound , gear more acceleration but on the highway you will rev a lot more than before = more gaz and change in drivebility and prob more expansive than 500$ if they have to shim the pignon a couple of time to get it right (im in canadian $)

seeign as your already dual, id go gears!

for 500 u might be bale to get a set of gears, and just two mufflers hehe.... but how you going to explain the mysterious brown boxes at teh front door, and you in the garage " piddleing around" for a few hours?

but with gears comes the install, mine ran me $300.

as to mufflers they clamp on, even though i welded mine

yea 4.10s depend on your habbits.

they get you going easyer, less gas from the start, but take more at top speeds.

by top speeds i mean highway. i was 70 mph at 2K now im 70 mph at 2400...not much..maybe 2 miles a gallon less... but on long trips... i burnt a hair over 1/4 tank in about 100 miles highway

witch isint too bad i may add, but it was better. and its with 373's

410s are a kick in the pants, but im glad i dident go that high.

i might have done maybe 390's but not 4.10s... but your gonna hear arguments from every side and for every gear, just my imput

Gears=Go faster
Exhaust= More noise.

So you gotta ask yourself. What do you think when you see a honda with a fart cannon on it?

Get the gears dude. When it is fast, then make some motherf---ing noise!
