I can't afford a full catback or else I would. What do you guys recommend? Would switching the mufflers to borla's "s" type help deepen the tone? Would switching to an X pipe make a difference? Can I swap my off road connection pipes with HFC's? If so is it really that much of a difference and how would I go about that?

Any suggestions are appreciated and thank you in advance! sorry for all the questions lol

p.s- I want "loud" and want to stay away from anything that will dampen the noise of my current set up.
Can you afford axel back? That's what I went with on mine. Very smooth sound with the Borla ATAK muffler. Here's a video of my setup on my 2015 Camaro so you can listen:

A full catback isn't worth they money. Unless you like blowing a ton of cash for just the sound. :(

I have Speed engineering longtubes without cats and an X-pipe on my L99 and it sounds awesome. No drone on the highway, but when you step on it the car roars.
