as long as you have the computer tuned to the new exhaust, you should be fine, torque isnt going to be a big issue if your not taking off cat

I think you should go with the magnaflow. I personally didn't like my muffler delete because it didn't sound loud enough for my taste. But either way, replacing your stock muffler with the muffler delete or a magnaflow muffler will be good. You'll loose around 50lbs of dead weight and gain performance. I think you should get a cherry bomb vortex muffler thoguh, its a lot cheaper than magnaflow and has the same sounds and "gains"

It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.

I have a like new magnaflow that is exactly what you need, but shipping would be pointless. With the res in place I hear it sounds deep and growly. Perfect sound IMO. It was too much for me with no res or cats. Go magnaflow. Won't lose all the torque but you will get a nice sound.
