Default Magnaflow?

Hello there ladies and gents. i have flomaster series 40's on my 02 monte SS 3.8L. I like the sound she makes but i was wondering if magnaflow glasspack mufflers would sound better? and as far as the resonator, what should i do about it?

Thanks in advance

I think you should go with Magnaflows, Flowmasters tend to be raspy..

You should go and listen to exhaust clips on eBay, I would keep the resonator or go shorter, although people have stated that you don't get rasp without a resonator on the 3800, I've heard otherwise :p
