allright well first off, i have the cerami-coat header new CAT and direct fit exhaust on my 93LTS 1.8 and as far as sound it´s great it has a different pitch depending on throttle pressure without being to loud the quality is good too, the cat-back kit is powder coated-aluminized heavy guage steel. i installed mine myself at my old custom exhaust shop over a year ago, even the other guys were so suprised at the FIT, FINISH, and how clean the installation went, the gaskets matched up perfectly and came with everything i needed (ie bolts, gaskets, and welded hangers in all the same original mounting locations (which almost never happens). you cant go to ghetto-zone or where-ever and find good piping anymore- especially in a world of cost costing and mass production. but you know what they say about OPINIONS. i guess none of you are mechanics because direct-fit (or out of the box) you cant beet, to this day my exh is clean and sound the same (great- had many of compliments) and the reaction when i say it´s pacesetter is a suprise bacause i love it. i had a custom jobby done last time and it sucked, i mean plain-out sucked. and it only lasted 13months :-Y , it cost $325.00 sounded like crap and i lost high rpm´s. i feel personally offended but dont take me too seriously i have just had a really shi** day at work and the first thing that releaved some of it was on the way home playin with the rpm´s, so when i saw the trashing i had to root for the under-dog.
i´ll have to post a pic(once i find it) of the custom job from last time, it looked good but "looks dont win a race".
