Yea that's why I was gonna weld a flange on the pipe so I could keep it reversible if I changed my mind.

Either too loud or drones or sounds like a wet fart.
Honestly, the FSW Stealth setup is closest to what I'd call the optimal sound, or lack of.
A good system, IMO, will consist of a big resonator and a quality muffler (not Mangaflow). Removing either component makes the car too loud or too raspy.
Ummmm... What's wrong with Magnaflow? it's just my resonator I have a Borla muffler. I have no intention on changing my catback as it is fine to me, I just wanted to experiment. Plus I'm planning to do a SVT swap by next year so I'm sure the sound will change again.
