Need exhaust suggestions

Hey all, looking for exhaust suggestions because I am simply not happy with how it sounds. I currently have straight pipes, headers and a gt9 cam. The loudnes doesn't bother me I actually love it, I just wish it sounded deeper/meaner

I'm happy with the Dynatech exhaust. It is loud, although I do have a cam, but the best thing is that there is no drone. I have cats as well. Totally recommend them.

I personally love the sound of old school muscle, big cams, big compression, lots of drone! Gets the blood going, I can tell you this...

#1 run 3" exhaust, it makes for more base and overall sound
#2 keep the H pipe setup to retain a more classic sound
#3 for most volume and old school sound, I have 8" bullets dumped at rear axle with turn downs

Or buy a 1k cat back that sounds so so, retro chambered is the only one I would actually buy.

Lay on the ground behind your car with your lips close to the tail pipe while someone revs it....... Make a recording you can play over the cars stereo

We run the Billy Boat exhaust on a lot of customer cars we do. The system sounds great and hardly any drone if any. If you have questions about any other systems I can help with those as well.

I put the GM performance exhaust on mine. I was still disappointed in the sound. It was great at full throttle but pretty quiet otherwise. I took it to Lou's Custom Exhaust in Meredith NH and they cut the resonators and butterfly valves out and it sounds absolutely assume now. It's loud but not rude. You can hear it rumble inside but not annoying. I also had the 3.91 gears put in, holy crap ! is all I can say, amazing increase in performance.
