Default Hate my Pypes exhaust. New Exhaust suggestion?

Not too happy with my Pypes axle back. Looking for a new exhaust.

I do not want any drone and I want something that FIT'S right.

Fit is the reason I'm getting rid of my pypes...crappy quality, but you get what you pay for! Sound was nice since the x pipe/header install, so no issue there.

Suggestions? Leaning towards Ford, Magnaflow, Flowmaster, the brands that are known to be good. Borla seems good, but can't really justify the price.

Thinking about even putting stock back on and getting new tips on it. The Pypes axle back is that bad to me.

P.S. Selling the Pypes for $200 if anyone in CA is interested (N.CA). Not really the best selling post, eh?

You will have to watch youtube videos for the sound you like the most.

If you are looking at just an easy fit and good sound I would recommend Bassani's. I had them on my car first then put them on my wife's car when I got my Magnaflow cat backs.

The bassani's had adjustments that make it easy to get a perfect match of both how much it sticks out the back and being centered in the rear valance. My Magnaflows didn't have any adjustments and I had to adjust the hangers to get them to match up on both sides.

I kept looking and reading all the complaints on exhaust, the only one you never see complaints on are Magnaflow streets, FRPP and Borla.
I went with Borla and love the look and sound and I just have the Tourings.

I have the MRT Interceptor axle backs. Should have some video from the track in the next few days once my friend uploads it. Get lots of compliments on them, although there is a little drone on the highway but I just finished a 4 hour trip and it was fine.

Magnaflows here...but I have the 3" pipes from the cats back to the mufflers, which I'm not sure if they make anymore. IIRC the other Magnaflows are 2.5"

Went with the ford racing. Safe bet.

$611 shipped. Pretty steep, but I plan on keeping this car for a while, so its a small price to pay for something you need to live with everyday.
