Default Newbie needing exhaust help

I'm totally new to this site, so forgive me if I am posting in the wrong area.

Anyway, in 2010 I bought a new 2010 grabber blue Mustang GT. I originally installed Pype Bombs exhaust (axle back). Was originally pleased, but they always sounded as if they gave a rattle and I could even tell it in the throttle. I took it back to Midas where I had it installed and they never could get it right. I finally determined after riding with this thing for nearly 3 years that it was just expansion of the metal. Other than that, they sounded ok, other than a little drone around 1800-2200 rpm's. But I changed those out a few weeks ago for Super 44's. The exhaust sounds fairly deep, and growls decently when you get on it, but honestly, it's not quite what I want either and it's welded in. So I have wasted hundreds of dollars in exhaust and still don't have what I want. But these two videos describe the sound I want. Something that will be obvious, but basically only upon start-up and throttle down. Is there anything I can get that will be relatively cheap?? I am tired of wasting money and want it to work. I have considered the SLP Loudmouths, but can they be installed after these others have been welded in? Sorry for my ignorance, but I'm just learning about this stuff and a late newcomer to the muscle car thing, but enjoy my car other than that! Any help is appreciated.

Pretty sure those cars both have off-road midpipes...if you want loud, that'll give it to you.

An offroad midpipe is the way to go if you want volume, and it sounds like the first one has LT headers and maybe cams to me. but offroad midpipe will really turn up the volume
offroad h plus flowmaster 40's

How much does an off-road mid-pipe cost? Can you recommend one? I want loud, but a good loud ya know? Those vehicles seem pretty close.

Also, is this meaning that the cats are deleted? I don't want to end up with a fine from the police around here. I want to be legal, but a good loud is fine lol.

that does mean the cats are deleted.. check out americanmuscle.com and search for them. they run $200-$500 depending on if you get highflow cats, the brand etc

here is a link for an offroad H. you would also need a tuner or custom tune to turn off the check engine light from going catless

All that is out of my price range. No wonder it doesn't sound right. I'm not spending enough money.

exhaust can definatly be a money pit, and it's challenging to find the right sound!
