Default Mac vs slp vs borla

hi guys! Im looking to get an upgrade for my axle back exhaust. This the first thing that I wanna change and I wanted to make sure I get the right one. I used Mac on my 06. Looking for a good change.

Thanks guys!

Youtube can be a pretty good aid with your decision, too. Keep in mind that axle-backs on S-197's are only good for your listening pleasure. I didn't want anything super loud, or annoyingly raspy. This vid sealed the deal for me when I was searching for exhaust:

And for vid-*****'s sake, this is me WOT at Summit Point...catch me at around 40 seconds or so:

Everything from the headers back?...or from the H-pipe back? I ask because if you are at least marginal with a wrench, everything from the h-pipe back is relatively easy to replace yourself if money is an issue and want to avoid labor charges. Changing out the manifolds is a little more challenging. Don't know where in VA you are, but up here in NOVA/DC, the labor rates are ridiculous.

Don't do it, bro. Wives never forget! Just save up a couple more dollars. It'll be worth the wait, trust me. Where you at in NOVA?
