Exhaust?

I just ordered my ORP, but after christmas I am going to buy an exhaust. I was told that magnaflow would be the best bang for my buck. I know that the exhaust wont add much if any, but is the magnaflow a good set up to go along with my ORP? Thanks

You cant go wrong with either magnaflow or borla exhaust for our cars both have gotten alot of praise in the forums. But I would say Borla gets a little more

I have heard that any exhaust would add much performance wise to the SVT's. I am really just after sounds. A nice deeeeeeeeepppp tone would be sweet.

I have magnaflow on my SVT, and it sounds great most of the time, but it sounds raspy
when the engine is cold, especially in colder weather. I would pick borla if I had the choice.
I've been in borla svt's with ORP and it sounds PERFECT.

I'm curious what the new FSWERKS exhaust sounds like that they just came out with for the SVT.
I've always liked the tip they put on those better than any others i've seen.
