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.

kinda thread jacking, kinda not, but for those with muffler delete, think it sounds good with a pair of shorty headers?

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.

I had a muffler delete on my ole heap when everything was bone stock. It sounded really tough with that combo and it wasn`t expensive at all. There are several easy to install kits out there. The one I had was from Magnaflow. I have since gone to great efforts to bring down the growl after some mods. Inspite of my buddies telling me there is no such thing as "Too Loud" . HA !!!

Whats up Dirty D-- I`m on Liberty right now.

Muffler delete = NO! Not legal in Texas. Also way too raspy. Just my 2 cents.

how is it not legal? you have your cats, your smog equip and its not overly loud>? and OP is in FL not TX
and how is it raspy? its deep and awesome sounding, sounds as good as a $500 axle back, and is much cheaper?

I have SLP's loudmouth which is essentially a muffler delete kit. Theres no rasp unless you just sit and rev it but under throttle it sounds great. There is a little bit of drone but I got used to it plus I plan on adding a full LT setup anyways.

I went with ARH into the American Thunder. The low end sounds good but I can't stand the tin can rattle when you get on to it. Sooo.. I'm getting ready to locate a set of GMMG chambered and tear them apart for the 2010.

I have never heard anything that sounds as good as a set of GMMG Chambered. The Flowmasters sound good as long as you don't accelerate to quickly.. Good luck!

This is MY opinion and many people like the sound.

Is muffler delete popular because it sounds loud or just because it is a cheaper alternative...I cannot stand the tone. But I can understand if people are using it because it is cheaper than throwing 500-1000 dollars...
