Quiet exhaust suggestions

Long story short, close on new home on the 28th of this month, wife is pregnant, and found out new neighbors are both police officers in their 40s with a newborn!

Currently running catless longtubes with no exhaust, which I love. So looking for quiet exhaust that won't wake the neighborhood when I crank the car up at 6am.. not really wanting to get a full catback or pay anywhere near catback money because I will be getting cutouts put in to bring back the loud. Any cheap exhaust suggestions? Also people with cutouts, do y'all have turndowns on the cutouts or just running the cutout. My truck has cutouts on it, but I don't have turndowns on those. My car is lowered so not sure if turndowns on the cutouts will bottom out..but I'm thinking magnaflow resonated x pipe, but don't know if that is quiet enough.

You have Muffler Delete, first thing / cheapest option would be to see if you can find the stock exhaust for sale on the forums here. People are always trading out their exhausts here, stock exhausts are easy to come by.

Second thing would be a Borla S type is relatively cheap + it's the quietest exhaust they have.

Also...
(f) The discharge into the open air of the exhaust of any stationary steam engine, stationary internal combustion engine, or motor boat engine, except through a muffler or other device which will effectively and efficiently prevent loud noises.
(g) The discharge into the open air of the exhaust from any motor vehicle except through a muffler, or other device, which will effectively and efficiently prevent loud and raucous noises.

Texas has no decibel laws, if you're doing it to be a nice neighbor and not wake the newborn that's totally fine. However if you're concerned that your cop neighbors will flex their badge at you, they can't say anything for starting your car up and taking off. (Unless you sit there like a jack*** and rev your car in the middle of the street).

My neighbor across the street is an LEO, my car is probably in the top 10% for being loud here on the forums, I have zero issues with him or anyone else in my HOA neighborhood.

Guess I'll start off with the magnaflow resonated x pipe. I just didn't think that one magnaflow could really quite it down that much. I was thinking magnaflow resonated x pipe, along with some type of mufflers in place where the stock mufflers used to be.

Def not wanting to go back to stock mufflers. It's not until you actually hold a stock muffler that you realize how heavy they are!
