Default 05 MC/SS/SC exhaust suggestions

Hey guys so I've yet to find a member selling any 17 inch rims I like and have yet to find any near me on craigslist and etc, so If I go thw whole winter without getting them I'll most likely do exhaust first when I ge tthe car out of storage, anyone got any good suggestions that are not too costly that'll make it pretty loud?

Really I was thinking magnaflow too I'd read a few posts saying that the Borla is not a very loud system.

Borla isn't all that loud, but it does sound best on the 3800s - it doesn't really drone. On the 3800s you're going to get low RPM drone and a bit of a ricey sound above 3k RPMs.

I know its a cheap route but has anyone just done glasspacks? How'd that turn out? My mechanics son, one of my best friends Dan H. has an 03 Grand Prix GT 3800 N/A and he said his has cherrybomb glasspacks on it and he likes them? Anyone else have an opinion

Well Glass Paks are a tried and true method to jump up your vehicles exhaust sound. Never heard them on a newer Monte but bet it would work real well. Back in the late 60's & early 70's
we used them quite often on our cars. Were in High school and not very deep pockets.

i saw this clip on youtube. i actually like the way it sounds. he used a magnaflow resonator and a 18" glass pack and deleted the mufflers. has a deep, throaty sound.
