I always go jetpro...adds up to 1.5 hp at the wheels depending on your engine and tuning.

i would say for the best all around go with a dom. i personily have a jetpro and love it, but it does nothing at the bottom end. specially if you have an ssp pipe. it doesnt really kick in till the top, but man does she open up!! the ss pipe really isnt all that bad. ive seen dyno'd horsepower and torche charts on another forum and its up ther pretty damn high.

things to keep in mind.


motor is the power
pipe is the power curve.

so you motor makes the hp, your pipe tells the motor how it should be applied.


So knowing how you want the motor to put the power down, will be a big key to what pipe you should buy.

then how the pipe actually works with the motor is also key.


so what motor do you have, and what type of power curve are you looking for? do you want high RPM, low end, a hard Mid pull of power?
