2012 SS Camaro L99 Exhaust

I am posting this looking for some advice on exhaust. Currently I have a Roto-fab cold air intake JBA long tube headers and JBA hi-flow cats with Gibson cat back exhaust. I don't like the sound of the Gibson exhaust and was looking for something that is a little deeper and louder in sound while gaining the most performance! Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
Thank you!

There's no performance gains from a catback..

If you want deep.. Get a 3" exhaust.
If you want loud... Get the Borjla (only 2.5")

You may want to check out the Flow Master Outlaw set up...

+1 on the Solo set ups. They have a deep sound and are also drone free. Other deep sounding systems would be Magnaflow or MBRP (3" set up). You won't gain any power replacing anything behind the cats. If you're looking to add power high flow cats or long tube headers are the way to go.

So can I later install LTs w/ hiflow cats with the Solo Mach XL J catback system? In other words will I be able to still use the entire Solo set? Because I think I read before that LTs/HFCs cannot be used with Solo's.
