Hi guys I am going to buy Pacemakers 4 into 1 extractor/headers. The size will be 1 3/4.
The only propbelm is which one should I get in order for my car to make the loudest / deepest sound.

The Short extractors or the Long extractors ????

The long will be louder than the short.

to make the loudest / deepest sound.
A large DIAMETER system from the cat back will make the deepest sound.
Maybe you should ask around on a forum that talks about pipe organs. They know all about this kind of stuff.
Glasspack mufflers will reduce the high frequency cackle but leave most of the fundamental low frequencies.

Extractors are not designed with 'sound' in mind.
Hence why I said what I did.
