I've been through three or so custom exhausts.
My 1st was the Stebro, the second was on my 5sp....glass packs for mid mufflers to an OE rear section. It was nice...but not load enough for me.
The second is Allen's old exhaust off his 4.2 car. Dynomax center section to straight pipes...again it's nice...but no load enough.
The thirds a Magnaflow two into one pipe off the cats to a 3" straight pipe back to a Flowmaster. I'm going to have some DTM tips welded on to come out the rear muffler. I like it. But.......
...I'm going to get one made up that comes off the cats & dumps out before each rear tire. That should wake the neighbors up :-)
Lots of choices...just depends on how obnoxious you want it to sound.
