LM1 sounds bad. Try a Hooker or something else.

do you have headers? i would say if you dont have headers get some and a Y pipe and i think you will enjoy the magnaflow alot more. if you want a better sounding catback GMMG FTW!!!!!

cutout is always an easy fix. i would not order the electric part unless you know you are going to use it

If you're going with LTs, hold off on exchanging the Magnaflow until after. Maybe you'll like it more then.

you can also get an ory for stock manifolds that way it will be an easy swap when it is time to smog and should give you the same sound as a car with longtubes. They usually free up a few horsepower and save about 30lbs.
