Stainless works retro or MBRP for exhaust?

MBRP looks to be around $200 less but in the 409 Stainless flavor.

Which one sounds better?

I have:

L99 Auto
Hi-Flow cats
Roto-fab intake

I'd go with the Stainless Works catback. Love the rumble of that exhaust

I have the MBRP exhaust and I love it, has a nice deep rumble to it. Some may like it louder, but to me loud does not sound good. I have had a lot of very nice comments on the deep rumble.

I have the stainless works also and love it but haven't heard the mbrp in person so I couldn't really compare them.

That thing is a real beast! Sounds "evil, wicked, mean, and nasty"! My buddy used to have a '70 Roadrunner with a sticker in the rear window that said that! It would be perfect in your rear window!
