Default Exhaust recommendation, budget friendly.

I'm looking to get exhaust on my 2000 Monte SS. I have about 200 to spend on the exhuast and then im gonna buy K&N Intake. Anyone have any idea's for me? No straight pipe.

don't buy the K&N get the wizaired from ZZPerformance. The K&N intake is crap compared to the Wizaired because it lets warm air get to the filter.

As for exhaust, anything is going to have some drone and kind of annoying sound with the 3800... A lot of people like the GMPP cat back but that is discontinued, i believe it is magnaflow mufflers though, it has a nice low rumble and minimal rasp and drone from what I've heard.

the loudmouths are very raspy at high rpms aren't they? they definitely have more tone at higher rpms than straightpipe but i thought they were a little obnoxious at high rpms on the 3800s?

i didn't know you took the headers off, why didn't you just get different mufflers and keep the power gains?

It did have more power off the line ..
