Need A New Exhaust

So, in my first attempt at fixing the 'pinging + rattling' problem on my car I am going to get an exhaust system and all new gaskets.

My OEM exhaust has a broken hanger and is also leaking anyways.

I currently have a high flow cat.

What exhaust should I get? I do NOT want it to be loud, but performance would be nice.

How does the Magnaflow with resonator sound?

I can get a deal on their kit (15743).

Can't ever really go wrong with Magnaflow. It'll sound good, especially with the resonator helping to take out raspiness.

if you are speaking of the kit that Magnaflow made for our SVTs, id skip it.
that kit's tubing is smaller in diameter than OEM. Magnaflow's tubing is 2.25" and OEM is 2.43? but yeah, OEM is bigger. other than sound, the magnaflow is a downgrade.

Ahhh yes, forgot about that. Yep, 2.25".

You can always get a system from Mandrel Exhaust Systems with Magnaflow muffler.

Then tell them you want to add a resonator.
