Best SS Exhaust for the money

Please keep in mind my car is a daily driver. I've been debating between Flowmaster Hushpower vs American Thunder.
I'm on a limited budget and looking for the best bang for the buck.
It's my 40th and a new sound is on the way!
What say you

I went with Flowmaster 10's, added a x-pipe and good to go! Nice aggressive sound when you stomp on it...

What this guy said. Cheap and sounds good with stock manifolds and cats.

If you want to also do headers you can get the entire XSPower header+x pipe+cat back system for like $730 shipped!
That's what I got and i LOVE it.

Mine were real close so I dimpled them just to be safe. A couple of dimples are worth the over $1,000 I saved.

yeah, best sound for the money would probably be to do like some have done and get a trusted muffler shop to make you a homemade loudmouth 3 inch axle back straights. if you want to buy something, try the SLP loudmouth. bolts on and sound great for the money invested. im sure headers and a true x pipe would sound awesome but bang for buck = loudmouth.
