    Borla paired with downpipe will give you good turbo sound.

    My only concern about the American Thunder is the fact the pipe diameter is actually smaller than factory. I've read 2 1/2 is good up to 300hp which seems to pan out because montune now offers a 300hp package utilizing their 2 1/2 exhaust system.

    I'm running a catted MagnaFlow downpipe and stock catback; I get an intoxicating turbo whistle at low rpm as it spools up. By 3k it's too high pitched to hear (darn tiny snail) but before that it sounds great and with light throttle I can drag it out for quite a while.

    A local tuner shop said it be about the same cost to build a custom exhaust so why not buy a system that was actually tested and researched. Also having a lifetime warranty is even better.

    Some people have complained about how Roush has very noticeable drone though? Also one guy commented about how the magnaflow CBE had a high pitch noise that annoyed him under heavy throttle and I'm curious to know if anyone else has the same issue?

    Drone is my biggest issue with most CBE's because I don't want headaches on the way to get groceries lol (plenty of mountains to go up around here and kill your ears). High pitch noises are rather odd, so maybe that guy had a leak or vibe causing it?

    Yeah I'm in the same boat I'm just stuck on deciding between magnaflow or borla. I don't know if I'm really wanting balls to the wall loud because I often give the car some throttle so I get the feeling I'm going to be loud as **** a good portion of the time. On the other hand I feel the appearance of my white with red stripe package is deserving of the borla. Borla seems to be the most unique sound of them all while the magnaflow seems to sound like your typical aftermarket exhaust. A part of me wants the uniqueness so you don't even have to see my car for even the average joe to say hey wait that must be the one red striped focus I saw before.
