Default What 3" in/out muffler for my setup?

So i am finally upgrading my exhaust to 3" and wanted to know what 3" muffler sounds the best in your opinion. I am currently running BBK LT's, catted Bassani X pipe, and SLP LM1's (All 2.5") routed to the side of the car (Roush side exit exhaust).
What i have for the new setup is Kook's LT's(1 3/4 Prim and 3" collectors) Kooks 3" O/R X pipe.
What do you guys think would sound the best?
Keep in mind its a tight fit under the car given the side exhaust.
Pic for reference:

Id like this muffler to be loud and deep.
If you have any vids of 3" exhaust please post up. Ive searched and watched several but I'm sure i haven't watched them all.
Thanks for all the help

I don't have any experience with 3" mufflers but I do have a question. Are your SFC's modified for the side exhaust?

I wouldnt say they are modified, but they are designed for side exhaust applications. I have the spintech SFC's. They are stepped to allow the exhaust piping to sit higher and closer to the cars floor pan for ground clearance and side fitment.

That sounds absolutely insane. Just be prepared, you might have to repaint the mufflers when you get them. I ordered a catback from MAC a few years ago and half the exhaust was painted, the other half was bare metal and starting to rust. Not sure if they've changed their ways or if mine was an exception but I wasn't impressed haha.

Yea i know what you mean. Ive been researching exhausts like crazy lately and have noticed a trend of people posting up or commenting that their exhaust (mac) wasnt coated etc.. As long as the metal isnt rusting ill be ok with having it being delivered bare. Ive become quite the spray can painter in my time working on cars so i can throw a coat on it no problem hahaha
