exhaust opinion needed

Im getting ready to do my exhaust and am looking for some good opinions on sound. My headers have a 4 inch collector and everyone says flowmaster-flowmaster. They sound good but everyone already has that sound or all there sounds. Its everywhere you go. I was looking into borla but cant find sounds online. I like the sounds of purple hornies. They dont sound like the red cased cherry bombs or glass packs, but in my opinion they have there own sound. Has anyone heard of warlock mufflers? Where can they be heard online? Couldn't find it either.. Someone out there has to have something different. Want a good deep idle sound and still be able to talk when driving but really deep aggressive sound on throttle. Thanks. Love them purple hornies!!!!!!!!!

Exhaust sound

Just go to www.youtube and put the names of the mufflers in search,crank up your speakers and pick the ones you like, also works for camshafts.

When listening to sound clips of mufflers, be sure they tell you whether or not catalytic converters were used, because cats muffle the sound quite a bit all by themselves. Also, crossovers, both H- and X-type, change the sound, especially the X-type.
