JBA LTs with 3" collector

I am in the market for new headers and basiclly a complete revamp of my exhuast set up. I originally wanted a nice throughty exhuast but loud like my friends 03 cobra. Well once i installed my coffin mufflers and my custom offroad H-pipe it just came out raspy and LOUD!! Well people like it but it is just way to raspy so i was trolling the shelby shop and came across the JBA LTs with 3" collectors. Now i wonder will i get a better sound with those and a complete offroad 3" exhuast with some JBA mufflers. Or even Stinggers and just have my muffler guy reduce the pipe to 2 1/2" when it gets to the muffler. or should i just go with the normal JBAs and choose between the JBA muffler or Stingger.

Right now I have JBA LT's with catted(gutted cats) H-pipe with Stingers. I love the sound, it can be raspy at higher RPM's, but I have grown to like it.

Adding high flow cats will definately eliminate the rasp for sure and the addition of stingers would sound absoutely killer. I have FRPP shorties, high flow catted x pipe and stingers and I couldn't be happier. Keep your 2.5" system because 3" won't make a difference.

ok so then just go with the normal JBA LTs and add thier high-flow catted H-pipe and stingers, i have always wanted this set up but with an offroad H but i will try it with the cats first and if i do not like it then i will go get a custom short H-pipe made or just cut up the old one lol.

I originally had that setup and it was still raspy near the top of the powerband. The only reason I gutted my cats was because the material inside broke and I didn't want it floating around in my exhaust. Go with that setup.

a little bit of raspy is no problem, because i want a deep throughty sound down in the low RPM when i am just doing city driving or cruiseing. I rarely get into the high RPM unless i am on the highway and i want to show off the responce of the Tillman Speed tune. but if you could hear my car it is just ridiculous how much (you can say) treble there is in my exhuast instead of bass like most 5.0 and 4.6 (2v & 4v) have. i have a start up vid that might work but i think the vid is no where near how it sounds in person
