Its Roush or Magnaflow to me, but still on your own personal preference on what gives you good harmony.

YouTube is terrible for listening to exhaust, but if you must, make sure you wear headphones or ear buds. I would suggest trying to find someone fairly nearby that has aftermarket exhaust and listening in person.

It seems the general consensus is that MagnaFlow has the lowest drone. Borla and FRPP are pretty much the same system. I think MBRP is extremely raspy, tinny, and has quite a bit of drone.

At this point, I've only done a resonator delete. It's still pretty quiet, but opens up under forceful throttle. I'm most likely going to do full custom exhaust, because I love the stock tip. The only aftermarket exhaust that has a similar tip is over a grand, not what I'm looking to spend on a cat back system.

Im leaning towards the Cobb racing unit. it is little pricey but Im not a fan of the bolt on tips that alot of companies use. I like the welded tips on the Cobb unit. I did look at the CNT racing catback as well but that is a 2.5 inch pipe and I really want a 3 inch catback.
