I would go with the #2 design. You can run it straight back as well so you have 2 options with that one. The first one isn't so practical and you would need hangars all over the place for that and alot of extra pipe

i was kinda favouring the second one. would i get HP gains from it? i am thinking about 10 -15hp?? also, i want it to be loud when i hit it, but a nice sound when its running, and the 4" tips should do the trick. Plus, personally i prefer magnaflows, flowmasters are alright. More of a deeper tone. Also, when i get the K&N filter, itll be nice!!
