nah big bell 351, based on opinions i've been given from two mates that work for different exhaust shops, apparently the lukeys were always great before they were bought out by like walker or someone? then they outsourced the manufacturing to china and the quality has been substandard since.
I had a redback and a lukey on my ELs, and I'd take the redback any day.

cool, didn't know that, but do agree that the redback sounds better than the lukey, but i still prefer the murcury over both of them, will be changing my redback on my ea for a murcury soon, as stated before that's just my preference

hey mn,

i got my lukey system, same as your getting, for $250 fitted. sounded alright when it was first on, and now 3 months later, its settled in, and sounds awesome.

just a hint of sound at idle, and quiet when you are cruising along, but as soon as you boot it, theres no doubting what you got. you will love it
