Ok guys I recently put in me LTs and ORY and would like to go with a bullet style muffler but I don't know anybody with a setup like this so I am looking to you for help.
(Note: the poll is only meant for bullet style mufflers)
1. What is your advice as to the different companies? (only for their bullet mufflers and not the companies in general)
2. Oval or Round? Or is the difference just for fitting reasons?
3. Is there any difference in performance compared to a catback system?
Thanks guys I really appreciate the help!

Bullets with LTs tend to be pretty loud. Most of the bullets I have seen are very similar in design. Some are chambered (GMMG, Stainless works) and some have fiberglass packing (dynamax, Summit brand). They give slightly different sounds. You should sample as many clips as you can to find the sound you are looking for. Mine is LTs, H pipe, 3 inch Dynamax bullets 18 inches long on true duals with turn-downs.

I've got a magnaflow 4" round bullet muffler right after the Y-pipe for space reasons.

I have the TSP Rumbler 3" catback that has the dynomax bullet muffler in it and I like it with my LTs and ORY.

That looks good man and ya its to bad that you dont have any vids or sound clips but where did you get that dump pipe? and did you just custom build the connecting pipes?

Hey guys can anyone tell me the difference in power between the bullets and a full catback system? and I take it that the bullets are usually louder...?

the TSP Rumbler 3" is a cat back system and the Dynomax bullet muffler is on the "I" pipe after the "Y" pipe instead of after it goes over the rear axle. I dint have near the loud rasp that SLP loudmouth does and even Corsa or GMMG. The Dynomax bullet is a straight through design with packing on the outside so there is little restriction while still muffling it some.

ws6onSLICKS,
All it consist of is the magnaflow 14419, into a piece of scrap I-pipe with the slight bend in the tubing(about 9"), then into the SS turn-down.

I have a TSP rumbler that i cut before it turns up to go over the axle, and put a turndown on it. So pretty much a Dynomax bullet dumped before the axle. Personally, I think it sounds better this way, cleaned up the exhaust note and has a much smoother tone. It got rid of the "machine gun" sound at 2500rpm.
