I have Clifford. Basically anything made by DEI aka Directed Electronics is awesome. Viper and Clifford are both made by DEI by the way.

Re: wj alarm systems

Yeah they have different models: some which have an LED light, LED Screen, Full color screen, remotes that reach a mile and this is before the add ons like tilt sensor, extra battery, extra blinking LED etc. I mean if all you want is remote start, just choose the basic Clifford security w/ remote start alarm I guess unless you want Viper. Sorry I can't help deciding between brands but both are very good.

In regards to the Magnaflow I had some body shop do it but they did a crappy job, I wouldn't suggest them but it did the job. Its a nice sounding catback for a 4.0

Re: wj alarm systems

i have the viper 5701 with remote start and all the goodies, i have proxy sensor set up so you cant look in my windows with out it saying protected by viper stand back, the battery back up, an voice box module, i am getting the window module here soon so my windows will go up and down

Any ways anything DEI is nice i would say. and my 5701 i get a really nice reach with it working. i go to the store and i can check the temp in my car at the back of the store so the range is great.

are you going to install your self???

Re: wj alarm systems

The police station takes their cars to a certain guy in long island city and he lets me buy the parts... theyll put it together and won't charge me certain "hours" of labor . i'm gonna find out if they do welding

Damn I wish I had hookups like that. I have to deal with BS artists known as audio shops and mechanics .
