Also totally agree with trying to pick an exhaust based on videos.. It's really hard especially when they are mostly free revs.. you can't hear the true tone until the car is under load. Plus then just doing pulls away from the camera doesn't give you a 100% accurate tone either.
Yeah it's really tough to decide.

I think I'm just gonna order the exhaust with just a muffler. That'll make it $300 flat for a stainless 2.5" exhaust. If its too loud I can purchase a nice resonator and have it welded in there.

Screw it, time to place my order.
