    Piper certainly cater for noise. I cant say i have heard one on a z20let but my mate has a cora 1.8 sri that he has been tuning down the n/a route for years. He has a 2.5" piper system manifold inclusive back and i can hear him about 5 minutes before he arrives at my house. Personally not my cup of twa but if it is noise you want piper can certainly supply that!

    Liek others have said, it depends on exactly what you're after and what exactly "best sounding" means. Mine initially had a Scorpion cat back system which gave a nice burble on idle, was barely audible during normal driving but when it came on boost it was a nice, but not intrusive. The Scorpion pre-cat and sports cat made it slightly louder still but not at all overpowering...

    If you wnat to be noisey, then perhaps a custom system would be best... couple of 5" cans and no silencer closely followed by an ASBO!
