new exhaust?

I was wondering what kind of exhaust i should use(side exit, or stock exit) I have a stepside. I was kind of thinking bassani side exit but what do you guys think. I had bassani on my mustang and loved it. What do you guys think. Also where can i get a Hi flow cat to replace the single one i have?

I have a bassani side exit for my truck but havent put it on yet. I think the side exit looks much better than the stock exit, at least get duals. Bassani also makes a stock exit if thats the route you want to go.

side exit I think looks good, its how both my rangers were/are set up... Im not one for duals out the back..

check out a local race shop, for a hiflow cat.. I had one on my 87 comanchee and it really helped..

I've done the magna flow dual in and dual out. To do it all over again I'd just run a custom bent 2.5" pipe from the cat outlet, back to a "Y", and then 2" pipes out each side behind the tires. Just skip the muffler and keep your stock cats. This will give it a nice growl that's not too loud, maintain the TQ curve, and keep you legal.
