Best turbo exhaust?

WHat do you guys think? I was planning to go Trubendz (3" of course) with magnaflow...I heard flowmaster isn't too experienced with compacts, and borla is pretty expensive, so I figure magnaflow is a nice compromise....what do you guys think?

I have Trubenx on mine with Magnaflo muffler....not bad, pretty quite at cruise and at full boost. Only issue I had was clearance on the flex pipe and the half shaft. Had to do a little creative heat related modification to make it fit. Other than that all went together fine. You do have to weld the support pieces to the pipe once you get it into position.

The Flowmaster might not be a good choice for a turbo setup.Flowmaster is a chambered muffler.Turbo's like straight through setups(less backpressure).

so, everyone pretty much supports my trubendz w/magnaflow idea? Oh and I'm getting a shop to install it, I'm sure they'll be able to make some slight modifications

Would a Borla be a good option? I think I've seen some turbo Foci with Borla.
