Default Looking for Exhaust

I'm looking for an exhaust that I like...but I'm pretty overwhelmed. After I think I like H-pipes over X pipes I hear a horribly sounding H-pipe set up and then find a really nice X-pipe set up....When I think I finally found a brand I like over another...suddenly a stock sounds better. When I think I hear the perfect sound and look at their set up....I have no idea what I'm looking at. Are those even pipes?! After a while all the sounds start to sound alike...and the crappy audio with the blowing wind doesn't help me get a good idea what they sound like in person. Some of them are really good quality...but the clips I see sound different from each other even when people are claiming to have stock cars with the same set ups.

Also, I'm pretty sure I've read the exhaust threads that explain things and have clips...I still think they don't sound the same, bad quality, or I have no idea what I'm reading even after I read 4 pages on it. Really simply...
I am looking for the older style sound..the reverberation, low rumble that has a powerful shifting sound. No high pitch screeching or sounding like some kind of backfire/lawn mower starting up.

I know people will probably just tell me to look at more online or in real person...but if anyone knows or thinks they know what I'm talking about, I'd like to see a link to some kind of set up or a guess on what type of system would give the sound I'm looking for.

Yeah...the pro chamber? I have seen that quite a bit I think in the set ups I liked. I think I like Bassani too...but some Pro chamber and Bassani sound like complete **** when i watch a video..I have no idea why.

All I can say is base your decision on what you hear in person and not on internet videos...if you see a stang you think sounds good, chase him down and find out his setup haha! Its worth it

here's my suggestion: mac LT's, mac prochamber, mac axle back w/ 4" rolled tips. and this would sound low rumble and loud too. this is an excellent set up, next to mine of course.
