Default Exhaust Suggestions Needed (accidentally posted in the wrong topic

Still getting used to navigating through the forum haha. So I recently just installed my cool air intake by CAI in my 2007 3500 V6, which by the way is treating me in some type of way (in a good way). Now my next mini project is to decide what kind of exhaust work should be done. I really want a loud deep throaty sound that catches peoples attention like "wow that sounds like a sweet ride." So far some inexpensive ideas have come to mind, since I'm also on a budget. I was considering on doing a muffler delete or even take out the resonator as well and just do a straight pipe. But I have also considered on adding either a MagnaFlo or FLowmaster with a resonator delete. Idk though, shoot me some ideas please? or even drop some knowledge?

Magnaflows tend to have a nice deep mellow tone at idle but with some rpm they really come alive. I have always been a fan of their tone.

I'm considering dual magnaflow mufflers once I save up some money haha

Watch deleting the resonator as it will make the car very raspy!!

Tad, the ls4 is a complete different animal compared to the 3800. I've heard many 3800 cars that sound great at idle or low rpm but above around 3k rpm there very raspy.

I still say the best sounding 3800 if a fairly quiet one unless your turbocharged then they sound best open downpipe.

3800s are tricky and it comes down to preference. I would prefer a pretty quiet one myself they have a different tone and are raspy when you open them up.

I have not heard a 3500 like OPs yet with exhaust could be a little different story.
