I just bought a 2012 gtcalifornia special stick shift, all stock besides the optional 3.73 gears. Im not a fan of the stock sound. What exhaust setup do you guys recommend? My range is about $400 and i want something mean and loud.
I know it's been hashed 1000 times over. I have Roush and loud enough when you get on it, but quiet enough to drive around daily without your head throbbing. Zero drone. If anything, they could be a tad louder. Maybe my hearing is going because I'm mid forties and drove too long in an original Notch with o/r pipe and flowmasters.

$400 won't get you anything crazy loud but in that range you could get roush Axlebacks. the drone is very minimal and they're pretty loud for just mufflers. you could eventually go cat less too which would make it very loud
Off road pipe then get a shop to cut out your resonators and mufflers, may be 100 or so over budget but definitely will be loud and mean. Drone is really not bad. My gf hates loud noises and she just cant stand the start up of the car but has no problems any other time

What about just cutting out the resonators to begin with.
$400 doesn't get you much, might in the classifieds. I've got a 3" Borla X pipe and over axle pipes (resonators cut out) I'd let go, but then your "stuck" using Borla mufflers. Have the cut out Borla resonators too in case that noise gets to be too much later lol.
I've been doing a little digging myself. I think I'm going to go for the MBRP Race series catback and when I can I'll get their 3" H-pipe as well. However I ran across this and given the OPs budget is around 400, for a 100 more there's this OBX full exhaust system. Midpipe, catback setup. Never heard of it before and can't find any sound clips on youtube. http://www.ebay.com/itm/151697621432
Here's another vote for Roush. They're right in your price range at 469 new. You could prob find a used set for mid 300s. They're loud like you want and sound mean. If you want louder but with budget in mind, consider the resonator delete for another 100-$200. I have Roush and am prob going to go for the resonator delete soon. Check out a few of the YouTube videos by Toxix. He had 3" pipe welded in from cats to stock H and 3" from H to ABs, deleting the resonators in the process.
