Spintech pro street vs sportsman

I have a 97 4.6 and looking to replace the mufflers. Want to go with SpinTech, but cant decide on the super pro street, pro street, sportsman, or cruiser. I have heard tons of sound clips, but they all have changed piping. I am keeping the stock setup, but at the rear split upgrading to 2.25" to the mufflers instead of 2". I want that loud throaty sound, but dont want bleeding ears on a road trip. Just curious what you would recommend. Thanks.

Different things sound better to different people. My girlfreind thinks my car is loud, I think it needs to be louder. I also like the flowmaster sound on my 5.0, 4.6 I like borla. Different strokes for different folks

Are you deleting the resonators up front? If not then your not going to get much of a sound no matter what mufflers you use...

Agreed. I had a Dynomax catback once that bolted up behind the resonator. It sounded pretty much stock. It's not so much the mufflers that give you the sound, it's the lack of stuff in the piping.

I did an x pipe, SLP Loudmouth 1's, and 2.25" duals. You can search to find my pics and vids/soundclips, as I'm posting from my phone and can't do it myself.....

Not deleting anything, all stock set up, except for increasing the last bit of piping from 2" to 2.25". I am in southern california, and under the impression that deleting / removing things in the exhaust set up will cause me smog pass issues. I guess I should go with the loudest muffler possible (spintech super pro street) and assume that the stock piping will negate a lot of the mufflers volume and hopefully end up with something decent thanks for all your responses!

I pass both visual and sniffer here in Houston, and our inspections are damn near as stringent as y'alls are out there....

As long as you have factory cats you should be able to pass smog test I would think..

Yes, deleting your resonator will do nothing for your emissions.
