Pypes Performance or Flowmaster Outlaw Catback?

I'm looking for a good quality, mean (but not obnoxious) sounding catback for my SS. I have the Pypes Performance catback exhaust sitting in a box in my garage waiting to be installed. I will be having Dynatech headers installed along with a custom tune. I know exhaust alone won't up the HP, but I want an exhaust that will work with my headers and tune to increase HP. Is the Pypes Perforamnce catback a good choice? Or should I put it on Kijiji and buy a Flowmaster Outlaw catback? I want to do this right the first time! I bought the Pypes last year just after I bought my Camaro. I've learned a lot since then. Plus, back then I didn't think I'd be looking for more HP. Help?

I'm trying to stay under $1000 so Magnaflow and Corsa are out. Am I making a mistake? Are either worth the $300-$375 extra?

I'd say go with the Pypes. I have them and I really like them. They arent too loud at all and have a nice deep rumble. My buddy had the flow masters and he switched to Pypes, the drone was driving him crazy!
