Default my exhaust upgrade?

I'm seriously thinking of upgrading mye xhaust in the upcoming week, only problem is I have to order the stuff soon so that I can get it installed the first week of April. I wanted you guys to check out my choices and tell me what you think.
TIPS:

MUFFLER 2?

I can't decide which muffler I want to get, it'* between these two. The tip is pretty much final because it looks similar to stock, but a little bit better IMO. that type of tip would look good on the riv because of how rounded it is anyway. I basically want whichever muffler is going to be a bit louder than stock, but not too loud. I don't want any drone going on. thanks for your opinions!

which series did you get? I definately like the sound of your Aurora. is it the aluminized, performance race series, or performance stainless steel? I'm looking at the stainless steel ones.

Nice tip. What kind of exhaust is on the Riv, Custom ? Is it split duals like the GP'* or is it transverse single like the H bodys.

Howcome I never hear anyone talking about Dynomax ?

I've heard Pete'*, i've heard Gordy'*.

Northstar=Magnaflow
3800=Flowmaster
V8 (350+) - flowmasters, or Borla.

The magnaflows sound REALLY nice on Jim'* car. On the RLD I thought it was just a tad raspy. Borla has always been good but pricey. I have not heard a flowmaster on a late model v6 so not sure what to say on that. Headers and stock exhaust isn't to bad either Quite and unsuspecting....

I agree completely...I love the Flowmaster on a V6, like zzzzzeke'*...truly a beautiful thing.

And for Rogue, zzzzzeke'* llink... http://www.fearthepearl.com/vids/zeke.mpg

It'* not a '00+, but it sounds sweet enough for me to try it if I can ever get the money together.

The thing about the Riv is that it has Aurora/Caddy exhaust with a 3800 SC, so, Borla if you have the money, but with the dual setup, the Maggers might be better then Flowmaster.

Either way you are gonna get a nice note out of it.

Good luck bud
