Default To MAC or not to MAC?

I just bought the true dual adapter, from here at AmericanMuscle, and now I am trying to decide which catback I should hook up to it. I have a '98 & I am basically just interested in sound and looks, although a little extra HP wouldnt hurt. Right now I am heavily leaning towards the MAC catback w/ 3" tips. It is only a little over $300 so the price is what I am looking for. Does anyone have this setup on there car or do you think I should go with something else?

I have the Y-pipe version of that setup and love it. Sounds good for a sixer, and is one of my fav. setups I have heard. If you go to you tube search for Mac exhaust and you can hear it on a bunch of sixers.

Anyways, Im staying in Ocala, FL about an hour above Tampa. My grandma has a summer house there w/ an '84 Vette parked in the driveway for me to drive all week.... then its back to my sixer lol

Alright guys I ran into a little snag. I am working at a body shop over the summer, so i took my true dual adapter down to work so my boss could look at it & see if we would be able to put it on there at the shop. When we lifted the car & looked underneath we didnt see anyplace to bolt the adapter onto after the cats. I kno u have to cut the Y pipe off, but after that what do u bolt the adapter to? My boss has never put one of these adapters onto a V6 before & I just plain dont kno what the hell Im doing. Im thinking about just returning the adapter & having a muffler shop fab me up an H pipe. Anyone have any experience putting these things on? I would really appreciate the help!
