Best sounding exhaust?
 
I know that's such a question is going to be subjective, but in your personal opinion what has been your favorite sounding exhaust system , some of the choices I'm looking at borla, Magnaflow, flowmaster? Any suggestions? I just don't want to invest the time and effort to purchase, ship, and install something that doesn't bring a smile to my face when. I get the revs up. Thanks, Jeff

I was never real happy with any exhaust when I was na but when I had the turbo on my svt I loved my magnaflow with the resonator. It was a 3" turbo back set up

Svts exhaust flow pretty good. I did the lunch box delete and removed muffler.
So now all there is, is a resonator and cat.
Put strait pip in only have $100 bill in it

Sounds good but some people say its too loud... But I disagree:D

Borla. I love mine, the deep tone just can't be beat. I have the true Borla version (not Trubenz) that has the resonator and muffler. My only complaint is that I'd like it to be just a bit louder, so I might go HFC or ORP eventually.

Thanks so much for the feedback, Do all these different choices work with california smog? I do find the smog laws here very restrictive but ohh well, life goes on. If a system does conform to ca law I guess like others I could just keep the factory stuff and change it out as needed.

My car originally had a flowmaster on it from the original owner but I removed that and put the stock back on cause it sounded too loud and ricey for my taste.

I'm thinking about switching to an ORP since my county doesn't have emission restrictions. Any recommendations on an exhaust to use with the ORP? Or is the loud ricey sound gonna be unavoidable with the ORP?
