Please help me choose....

I currently have some 1-7/8" long tubes with cat delete pipes ready to install. I am waiting until i pick a catback exhaust to install it all at once. I have narrowed it down to three exhaust systems but am stuck. Have been stuck for a while. I live in a small town so I am one of few camaros around and they are all mostly stock so hearing them in person is not an option for me. My three I've narrowed it down to are:
-flowmaster American thunder
-borla s-type
-borla atak

I want a deep throaty rumble. I hate raspy exhaust notes such as corsa. Out of these three which would be best to give me that deep rumbly sound? I want an aggressive setup that turns heads and scares the car sitting in the lane beside me but can't have it to where I'm constantly dealing with cops. Any input on which of these three systems paired with longtubes would be the best for my wants is greatly appreciated.

For what you are describing I would suggest the Borla S-Type out of those three.

Crappy S-Type with headers video.

I have the flowmasters and I love the way it sounds. Very deep nice rumble. "Drone" if you want to call it that is noticable, but I like it.

The ABSOLUTE BEST deep, throaty sounding exhaust is the JBA 3" competition exhaust. It also has great looking tips.

Here is the link to stainless works listen to #9 post they are sweet they are small round about 4 inch round
I was advised not to run that system with longtubes by a pro. That's why I was asking about the atak exhaust. Thought it might be too much with headers too.

The Retro Chambered will be loud with LT headers but the ATAK will be just as loud. If you want Borla go with the S-Type, with Stainless Works the S-Tube.

Try the Magnaflow 16483 3" exhaust. It's what I have on my car and it has a very deep throaty sound to it. It's not raspy and no drone. It may be just what your looking for.

I love loud. I want aggressive. But will running the atak or the retro chambered exhaust be so loud cops will take notice even with normal driving? Just wish I could hear it so I would know how loud. How loud compared to a muffler delete on stock manifold?
