Default I want to do an exhaust..

But I want it to sound loud when you hit it, but be a little held back when going down the highway instead of the loud droning, if it'* light on that, it'* okay..

I have $150..

How much is the main muffler like some people have ?

give me recommendations, underside pictures of your pipes, pics of your tail extensions, etc.

i'm just looking right now, but i'm tired of a stock exhaust.. i like to make noise, but 3800s sound SO good with the proper exhaust, i just don't know which I should choose.

Might be easier to search on new exhaust or new muffler for this stuff. Many people did this last year when I first joined.

Most regretted it due to drone.

Magnaflow F-body with the stock resonator was fine for me. Louder and throaty on cold starts, not 'loud' on highway.

Stay away from the Ravin muffers. Mine is rusting out after 4 PA winters.

Yes it will be louder but louder = > hp
Yes it will cause the hairs on the back of your neck to tingle every time you press down on the loud pedal.
Yes it will cost you more than $150.
Doing it right will cost you about $1000.
Of course you could use some thriftier materials but you get what you pay for....

So if something starts to leak, replace it. If not, love the sound of your stock exhaust.
