Default Opinions NEEDED! Exhaust Question

Alright, so i was thinking of aftermarket exhaust, and im stuck between Magnaflow, which i had on my ford and sounded awesome, flowmaster has a good tone to her but never had it before, and the MBRP which im leaning towards because its the in between flowmaster and magnaflow for sound and tone. and the price is pretty decent for MBRP exhaust tips are free and its a 2.5" pipe to a 4" exhaust tip where magnaflow is a 3" pipe to a 5" tip.
Any opinions would be great since i told him to order the MBRP like 30mins ago.
Thanks.

Magnaflow has 2.5 inch piping through out. It's just your opinion on what sound you like though. Get what you like

I don't know much about MBRP but you can't go wrong with Magnaflow. You could go with a Magnaflow Mufflex kit and install it in your driveway.

Personally, I would stay away from Flowmaster. They sound pretty good but the quality and performance are not comparable to Magnaflow.

Thanks guys,
i think ill be happy with the MBRP exhaust, i listened to a few on youtube and i heard a couple on a few other trucks, they sound good, just wasnt sure if it was a wise choice or not, figured i would get some opinions on the MBRP from the forum.

I love Magnaflow!!! I have their mufflers on everything I have ever changed a muffler on. For my 2010 1500 I bought the exhaust really cheap but I have yet to put it on.

I'm torn between the corsa db system and the magnaflow cat back system. Anyone out there please comment on either one as far as drone and tone. I really don't want to have any highway drone so the mufflex replacement mufflers are out.

What's wrong with mufflex? They come in 14" 18" and 22" (might be 24") anyways I have the 22" magnaflow cat back and it has 0 drone. I got a cutout on that I use full time now though

I've heard of drone issues with the mufflex kits. Plus i think they are overpriced for a muffler and a few pipes but thats just my 2 cents. Any drone with the magnaflow catback?
