    According to GM press releases, S series Touring Sedan. The SRX was also an "S series" vehicle (both shared the Sigma platform).

    ----------

    This isn't the actual press release that I've read, but Edmonds abbreviated version:

    ..."but this vehicle will go by the name SRX. Cadillac notes that it is the first of the company's S-series models — the second will be the 2005 STS, the replacement for the Seville"...

    ========================
    what does STS stand for?
    absolutely nothing -
    the same way 2005+ DTS no longer has anything to do with a Deville -
    or CTS - XLR - XTS - these never got a "real name"
    just 3 random letters that someone thought sound good together -

    OK, that sounds logical though I never understood this "Sigma" thing, but then that begs the question what does DTS stand for?

    EDIT:
    Looks like Bass answered it and confirmed my suspicions.

It thought I wasent goin to get a exaust becaus I wasent sure if I wanted to pay for it but I think I do now so I was just wonderin what yall think is better and if yall could give me a price because a guy I talked to said he would charge me 450-500 for super 40's witch yall said is a rip off

    ----------

    It depends on the sound you want. That's all it'll be, don't plan on any power gains. Even the Corsa system, completely flow through and mandrel bent, will only get you ~16 WHP. Nothing you can even notice.

    People put Northstars into other cars all the time. Fieros, sand rails, even hottods.

    There IS am aftermarket, a small one, for Northstar engines. They can be modified fairly easily. However, modifying them while they're still functioning in a Cadillac, with all electronics systems functional, is quite another story.

    It's hard to say which sounds better, I've never heard either in person knowing what the owner was running. I tend to like Flowmasters though, in general.

    Do you know which model of nagnaflow? 50's are deep, 44s are a little louder IIRC.

    I think it's 50s but not sure

    ----------

    Are 40s louder than 44s ?

    I knew all of this when I had a custom cat back put on my Lincoln, but I don't remember now. You'd be better off looking on their site.
