Go with quality. You'll only do it once. Do your research. If you want quality, stick with a company that makes just what you're looking for, not someone who slaps his name on any old piece of crap just to make a buck.

HERE is a good place to start...

Just curious, how is/was that thread to help the OP? Someone that is new to the site, asking about a budget exhaust and you post a link to your thread about Snake Oil..... Where in that thread does ANYONE talk about exhaust.... I'm just curious.

OP- For $500, you honestly don't have a lot of options. You're best bet is an Axle-Back System for the price range your looking at. There are several companies that make good sounding systems; Borla, Magnaflow, Flowmaster.... Just to name a few

Each system will sound different, so my advice is to listen to sound clips and look on other sites.

Seriously...do you follow me around?

Anyone with even the faintest understanding of reading comprehension (as I'm sure the OP is more than capable) will be able to ascertain I was reinforcing the idea to CHECK OUT who he buys from.

Get off me already! I am trying very hard to not say EXACTLY what I think of you....

We now return to the adult portion of our thread.

and better yet, try to find other cars in your area or close enough to drive to that you could listen to in person. Even with ALL the clips I listened to I couldn't get a good feel for the sound. The same system varied from clip to clip depending on how the clip was made (angles, distance etc)....

Excellent advice, sound clips give you a general idea but can be misleading. In person is always the best way.

Please don't engage in back and forth bantering. Stick to the topic please.

To the OP, you can go cheap, but with exhaust you often really do get what you pay for. There are a handful of name brand exhaust that are very good at their trade. They cost more unfortunately but the quality and ease of mind knowing that it will fit helps some with justifying the price in my opinion.

For your budget an axle-back system will get you started. I hope some owners will chime in with a some brand suggestions

Definitely. I couldn't find anyone near me with anything other than something really loud or something really loud!

I had to jump in and take a risk with the 3" Magnaflow Competition Series catback I went with. It ended up being the perfect choice for me! Deep (and I mean deep) sound that flowed really well (I am boosted) and I could get away with most shenanigans without alerting the po-po.....

Thanks everyone for your great input. Now i have a idea of where to start.
My main concern was coming over from a 2013 5.0 Mustang. i know i saw the light. the mustang mufflers were a different shape as far as i can tell then the
camaros. i had flow masters on the mustang with the resistors removed and it sounded pretty nice. are the camaros mufflers shaped different? thanks again
