I'm open to anything and everything (that doesn't kill my wallet) so post your opinions and even videos would be much appreciated, thanks!
Every offroad will kinda be raspy and bave a rattle to it (I have offroad h and x at my house and took both off). Also, whhen there are no catts, a lot of backpressure is created and your exhaust will make a loud banging and popping sounds when that pressure is released. My suggestion for the BEST sounds possible is:
Obx longtube headers with high flow resonated h pipe and borla s type (stinger) axlebacks. The headers will increase volume, the offroad h pipe will add TONS of volume, the high flow resonaters will take away a very small amount of volume (making it bearable to drive but still piss off your neighbors loud) and the borlas give a REALLY mean, deep, old school muscle sound.
In my opinion, combo that with some frpp hot rod cams for some amazing hp and tq gains and an AMAZING old school sound that will win shows and turn heads. (Expect about 40 rwhp gains with cams if you have long tubes, about 10-15 hp gains from longtubes alone, 5-10 hp gains from borla axlebacks as they are free flowing axlebacks and about 5-10 hp gain from mid pipe for a whopping 60-70 hp gains from exhaust alone (provided you have a great tuner))
Now pricing. This is where it gets a bit nippy.
-OBX Longtube Headers With Offroad and resonated H Pipe ~$470
-Borla Stinger Axlebacks ~$485 (summit)
-FRPP Hot Rod Cams ~$750-800
All in all, id say its TOTALLY worth the money for your car to sound and feel/pull like a beast.
