Default New exhaust

I am looking into getting a new exhaust system for my 06 SS. Any suggestions? I'm thinking about going with the magnaflow performance setup. Any advice appreciated. Thanks.

I have been messing with my exhaust for awhile. I first had the full magnaflow kit

Then I took the resonator off....unfortunately I don't have a video of that but it got a little more aggressive sounding.

Then I got a hogan catless downpipe. now it just sounds mean haha

In all reality you can save a lot of money and just delete the resonator and get mufflers instead of buying the whole kit. That is the route I wish I would have done. Magnaflows, Spintechs, and slps all sound great on these cars.

No problem I tried to make them to help people with the decision. I remember watching videos before I bought what I have and there wasn't many with very good quality. If you check my channel I have some from the inside or just idle and some other random ones
