What is the best exhaust system for a 2010 Camaro SS?

I was thinking Corsa... maybe Borla... I really like Stainless Works but I'm pretty sure it'd be too loud and the drone would be killer. Magnaflow, Flowmasters, Slp loudmouths... too many to choose from... What are your thoughts?
what sounds best on an automatic...

need more details...cat-back or axle-back? plans on running long tube headers later?

if you don't plan on doing headers down the line, just search for different exhaust clips here, on youtube, or the different companies web sites...also if your just going for sound, "the best" is really gonna be up to you and your personal tastes

We've had both Borla's and Corsa's on all our C5 and C6 Corvettes and loved them all. For our 2SS 6M we ordered the Corsa cat back system yesterday and I'm sure we will be pleased with it from the sound clips I've heard. We do a lot of cruising the back roads so no interior resonance is just as important to us as is the loud sound when at WOT. This is never a problem with a Corsa system. Good luck with whatever system you chose.

I did borla S-type catback and it sounds incredible. It's not crazy loud, but just loud enough. IMO

the best exhaust for you is whichever one you like the sound of the most.

I have a Corsa on my 99 Z28 right now.. If the 5th Gen Corsa setup is anything like my current, thats what I am getting..

My Current exhaust consists of Long tubes, Catted Y-pipe, and a corsa Catback..
when cruising you cant hear the exhaust 45-70MPH, you hear the tires on the pavement, but when you get on it it gets loud.

I personally have Zoomers Exhaust installed and I love the way it sounds and feels when i step on the gas. I got the full cat-back exhaust system. Its not obnoxiously loud. It has a nice deep throaty growl. It sounds like a true muscle car sound. I personally love it. Definitely what I was looking for.

I've gone with ARH and love it. Sounds awesome. The way a Modern day Muscle car should sound. Using stock t/pipes and mufflers. The + is the added HP. Stainless headers and 3" back to t/pipes. If I knew how to post a video of it I would. Check out 5thgen.org. There is a video with the system sound. Good luck in your search.

I just put on the 2 1/2 diameter mufflers on my SS in place of the 3" s-turbos. I am contemplating changing out those for the chanmbered, which should be the quietest of the group.

Yes...they are loud, but any header you toss on there is really going to make it loud(er) once you all the extra airflow.

www.slponline.com Click on the big 2010 camaro picture on the front page.

However, SLP doesn't make/sell headers (yet ). The headers they used in their videos are AHR or KooK's. I spoke with a tech guy on this. He said "any long tube header you choose to put on will work with any SLP system and make it louder"

From all the videos and all the talk and all the read. The MBRP sounds the best for those that want to keep stock manifolds and cat's. It's a 3 inch piping with x-pipe replacing the resonators/baffles into a nice, small "see through" muffler. The only draw back is, and this is because I've not seen reading on this, I don't think this system comes with tips (could be wrong). But you can get them anywhere and bolt them on. The best part is this MBRP right now is $400 to $500 cheaper than anyone else (Borla, corsa, Magnaflow, etc. don't know and can't find Zoomers' price) that is doing the same setup. Better sound and cheaper are both good selling points for me.

Now, I spoke with my local muffler shop. The guy will do anything that I'm interested in. (Miller Muffler Wichita Falls, TX btw ) I asked if he could make the same setup as above. He said yes, it would be 3 inch, xpiped, into a Magnaflow and tips, all for $500 (includes labor). That's now up to $900 to $1000 cheaper. Awesome really, but I'm torn because I don't like the Magnaflow muffler unless they make one that looks and sounds like MBRP's?

They are the least expensive I've seen, except for just having an exhaust shop just buils one for ya.

But, everything I've seen is expensive for this car; I guess because it's new.

I myself am liking the magnaflow streets. Better flow without the obnoxious noise...and its still legal and better for the environment. I run straight pipes right now on my Evo and I'm starting to feel a little guilty about polluting the environment for those around me just so I can have a few more ponies.

EDIT: Note for the mentally challenged--the above italics are sarcasm.

Not withstanding your obvious lack of maturity and understanding -- you should still note the sarchasm in my previous post. Continuing the dry humor, I don't smoke or drink either, do I need to grow a pair of balls and start doing that too? Perhaps I also need to start dumping my oil out in the front lawn, and go out and buy an old 69 maro' frame and stick it out in my un-mowed front yard on blocks?

I'll be waiting on my porch with my overalls on, playing "free ride" on the radio while drinking a case of Coors before I go driving. Hey why don't you come with me??? We can play mailbox baseball!
