I am pretty sure this has been talked about LOTS in this forums, so i will make this quick and simple.
The stuck exhaust sucks (soo quiet, can barely hear that big ass v8)
So my question is this:
Best bang for buck to make it purr.
Thanks guys and gals.
Probably flowmaster.check with florida r/t,i kinda followed his advice.
Plus- you can hear his.
Corsa Extreme is probably the Cadillac, but pricey.
Solo Exhaust is a really good system at about half the cost. Not as old school sounding, but Zero drone, quiet on the long highway cruise, and roars at WOT.
figure you have to mod both the mufflers and resonators and tips on a hack job. For some reason, the results may vary from car to car. The cat back systems are supposed to be a tuned system.
I threw away my Gibson system, then bought one no longer made, then modified that, then tried the Solo, and will probably stop here.
All that cost me more than the Corsa Extreme would have.
Listen to some sound clips, and remember that the 4 cyl mode often creates drone. That's why the system has a muffler (or two) and rear resonators - to cancel the drone.

Just a grocery getter!
Cherry Bomb or Blastin Bob's <------ He's a vendor here and has great prices. You can get a resonator kit from mild to wild. Those are some of the cheapest around.

Since then, I've replaced the stock suitcase muffler with a pair of Flowmaster 40s.
There is no 1 answer. Exhaust it too personal...
If you can solve your problem, then what is the need of worrying? If you cannot solve it, then what is the use of worrying?
My cherry bomb vortex from a prior post cost me around $320 and I love it. I warn you, it is loud and you will always know it is there. For the price, I wouldn't trade it for almost any <$1000 exhaust out there, all things equal.
Best advice i can give, find people locally to ride in their car. See if you like the sound windows up and windows down anywhere from idle to WOT to cruising at 75mph. Too often people buy and a few months later are tired of their purchase.
