advice needed choosing exhaust for dd v6

hey guys and gals, I need your advice deciding witch exhaust should I get for my camaro. I have 2011 v6 and use it as a daily driver. I probably have watched millions of youtube clips trying to decide which exhaust I like the most. But it's not as easy as I thought it will be. I have done some other mods on my car: got a rear spoiler, different front grille, stripes. But it was easy to choose, because I was choosing by appearance. One spoiler just looked nicer than others to me, so I bought it. But with the exhaust - I have to choose by the sound. What makes it even more difficult that I have to choose by the sound from video clips. In the perfect world I would have the same v6 with all different exhaust systems, so I could easily decide which I like the most. Since I can't do that, I ask your help. After all this forum is for sharing info

So from all video watching and reviews reading I came down to 3 options. 1st on my list is gibson performance axle-back. great price, no complains about drone, nice deep sound. 2nd is dynomax vt axle back exhaust. good price, no drone, not too loud at idle, but louder than stock when you want them to be. 3rd is corsa cat back exhaust. Best sound of all, no drone, but really expensive compared to my other options.

if I would not look at the price, I would by corsa. But now realistically I'm choosing between gibson and dynomax. And now here you all guys came to my help Please share your opinion, experience and thoughts of these exhaust. Anything that might be helpful for making my decision. I want to by exhaust this Monday.
Thanks in advance

I like my SOLO cat-back, but I have also heard in person and like MRT 2.

If I had the money at the time I would have went with the Corsa. I went with the MRT 2.0 and haven't regretted it.

The best setup is with flowmaster axleback with a magnaflo res x-pipe. Caution do not get the FM's without the x-p or it will sound terrible about 2k rpm. With the FM and XP its the best sound around that gets better with age. Deep smooth sound with no tin can ricey sound.

Guys, he doesn't care about MRT or Solo. He wants opinions on the three choices he's narrowed it down to.

OP, I am in the same boat as you, and am looking at the Dynomax VT as well. Sorry, I can't help you with firsthand experience, though.

It's not that I don't care, I'm open to all suggestions, but I would really like to get more info about gibson, dynomax and corsa.

I'm new at this exhaust stuff, so can someone tell me if I can use magnaflow Resonated X-pipe with any kind/brand axle-back exhaust? and is it legal in illinois, will I pass emission test? this is what I found: http://www.ehow.com/info_12005394_re...est-pipes.html
thanks

I have the corsa and i obsolutely love it! It's perfect! There is no drone whatsoever, and it gets LOUD when i want it to be, but if im just driving normally its not a nuisance. I would recommend spending the extra money and buying the corsa! You really wont regret it!

Add another SOLO owner to the list! IMO, hands down best sounding V6 Camaro exhaust
