Any answers you get will be that persons opinion. Maybe the best bet is to go to YouTube and watch videos. There will be plenty.

Flowmasters give a nice sound and are not very expensive.

I install a JBA single exhaust cat back system & it sounds good.

Did you have to reuse the OEM pipe right after the cat? I think its called the intermediate pipe...

I cut the flange off the converter before it necks down to connect to the remainder of the exhaust system. To the larger diameter section , which is 2.5 in , I put a pipe back to a thrush welded muffler , in the factory location . offset in / out will allow a pipe from outlet over the axle, or a tailpipe if you wish. It added a little oomph , and the sound is good without being raspy.
