well they're pretty much all on there. if you don't like any of the systems you might look into getting a custom exhaust made.

The loudest aftermarket cat-backs are Roush, Borla and Flowmaster. You can go even louder with a muffler and resonator delete on the factory exhaust, but it's raspy. I wanted close to the same sound and volume as the Roush, just without the price tag, so I went the custom route. I talked to Roush and they said they used a straight through muffler, not a resonator as some threads state. So, I had the muffler and the resonator deleted and then had a Pypes M-80 straight through muffler welded in where the resonator was. I went with the M-80 because I'm very framiliar with it from my Camaro days. It's a tiny bit quieter and it doesn't have quite the turbo whistle as the ones stated above, but it is noticeably cleaner and deeper. That is a fair trade off for me, as I cannot stand rasp. Though, it's louder than the Cobb and MBRP style cat-backs.

The muffler and tips I ordered were $40 each and the labor was $120.

My Flowmaster sounds amazing! Another buddy of mine has a Borla exhaust on his car which sounds great too. Cant go wrong with either, however the Flowmaster has more pops.

Thoroughly enjoyed the sound of those exhaust setups that you shared. I can't believe all those pops. I'm curious as to what that sounds like inside.

Also be sure to check out Injen's offering if you want loud/cracks and pops. I do miss that exhaust's character some times.

I will make a video and show you when I have time..... I will say they are not overly loud when you don't want them to be. But when you do let off at like 5-6 grand they are LOUD. it doesn't happen under 2,000 rpm. I will show all of this in the video

I went with no res and custom flowmaster and all I can say is it doesn't sound like a 4 cylinder lol more like a v6 when that turbo kicks in. So loud on WOT lol always makes me smile the burbling and pops I get. People always compliment me when they hear it or think I'm catless which scares me for when I do go catless lol.

go on youtube and listen to sound clips. "best exhaust" is completely subjective.
Agreed.
I have the Ford Racing Power Upgrade Package and the exhaust sound is really awesome, but I'm sure that there are a bunch of aftermarket exhaust around here that sound just as good.
Cobb I think is really nice as well.

Agree with the comments that Roush, Borla and Flowmaster are the loudest based on what I have heard. I think you would be happy with any of those if you want a strictly bolt-on kit.

I'm on the other end of the spectrum and will likely go with Mountune when I'm ready to add a cat back system. I want only moderately louder than stock. But hey, I'm an old guy!

I love my FRPP catback but if you're looking for something loud like Caleb's it is not the way to go. I prefer the more subtle sound of mine, though once I go with a high flow dp it will get louder. Regardless of what brand you go with, a high flow or catless dp will change the sound dramatically, not to mention that's the only thing keeping me from stage 3.

I've got an agency power exhaust with the triple tip and it has its own unique sound with all the pops but the pops are deep, sounds super good in the city, deep and loud, but it's got alittle but too much drone for me at 80mph, but I also have a motor build and bigger turbo with custom DP so that all comes into affect, but if you'd like you can check out my Instagram page j have some clips of the car that sound good.... im_focust is my username
