Borla S Type, or Axel Back?

Can't decide. I had a Borla catback on my 4th gen and loved it. Now it is time to upgrade the 5th gen, and I can't decide which one to get.

I know there is no real power gain with either. so it basically boils down to cost and sound. I can get the axel back for less than 600 bucks, or for 1200 the catback.

So basically I need to know on a 5th gen what are the advantages of a Catback over the axel back. I want to hear what everyone thinks.

PS: I tried searching.

The catback gives you an X-Pipe which is more free flowing than the H-Pipe, also you may have a lil weight savings but idk if that is actually true with the LS3, also the Catback version is a tad louder than the Axel Back version, but both are incredible and its basically all about money savings from there. Im sure you won't be disappointed with either choice! and you can find the Catback for less than 1200 my buddy found it for $1070 shipped. But goodluck to you man! I have the full catback with shorty headers and i love it, their headers are really nice as well!
