I'd say the Fwerk's system. The stealth fits & works great. They are all going to be similar to install.

any of the bolt together systems will work fine (which are most aftermarket systems). if you get something custom made and welded that will take more work. the hard part isn't installing, but removing the stock exhaust. if your bolts are seized (flex to catback) could be a pain, but the bigger issie is you have to cut the back section in front of the rear subframe to remove it. not a bad process if you have the right tools to cut it with.

Is it absolutely necessary to cut it though? I mean, I know a few friends of mine who cut there's, but why can't you just unbolt the whole thing and slide it out?

Its quicker to use a sawsall & you aren't keeping it.

I have heard horror stories about bad installs on stuff missing or stuff not fitting properly

From what brand or product? Get the fwerks & be done.

To get it out without cutting it you would have to drop the subframe.

Borla gives the best quality and easiest install. TrueBends is the worst/hardest. FSWorks is good quality. I speak from personal experience with all three.

Yeah but if you don't have to drop the sub to install it...?
