Only you can answer that question, so much of it is personal preference. But you paid an extra $995 for NPP, so you might as well leave it as is and drive the car for at least a few months to see what you like.

I've got very few miles on mine thus far, but have noticed that different drive modes make a difference in how quickly the valves open/close based on RPM, etc. The nice thing with NPP, in my opinion, is the ability to have it loud when you want, yet being able to put it in stealth mode when you'd rather not be. I also like that it is "get your attention loud" but not obnoxious. In my opinion, something akin to the low rumble of a Harley vs. the whine of crotch rocket racing past.

Check out the Borla website or their clips on YouTube, I got the borla S-Type catback for my 2020 ZL1 and love it, no rasp and has great deep throaty sound too it.

I've always found Youtube videos don't do an exhaust sound justice. I think the capture quality isn't there as the high and low frequencies are cut off, and then you're at the mercy of your phone/laptop/desktop hardware.

100% agree. The revving, cold-start, and drive-by stuff seems interesting, but there's absolutely zero consistency in recording equipment or positioning of the microphones. Using a smart phone or a GoPro is never going to give you any useful result because the mic's are not designed to capture the volume, frequency, OR dynamic range of an exhaust sound.

Absolutely.
I really want to ask a crazy question here, but I'll hold my tongue.

I have stock NPP. 2” headers with high flow cats sounds awesome. I’ve heard without cats it can get raspy, but I think it sounds great. I’d keep it IMO.

Depends if you want a Sony or a Visio brand? There is a difference in price and both get the job done when tested side by side.

As far as Exhaust there are a lot of options.

Would I go for a Borla no, over priced imo. Would I go with Kooks, great quality but also pricey.

Just depends what you are doing and what your budget allows.

You can get away with cheaper brands that are just as good as the $1000-$2000 brands. Do your research.

If money isn't an issue find a good shop relative to where you are located and ask them. They often have packages of their own as well.

If you are a DIY'er then I yield the floor to everyone else.

Based on this thread, sounds like you DO NOT want Magnaflow.

Also, appears Corsa makes a kit which can utilize your NPP investment.

There is no “Best”, if there was we would all run the same exhaust. Listen to you tube, exhaust manufacturer clips, etc. Also, keep an ear and eye open around the area where you live. No one can pick out what you want but you.

Magnadrone has a bad reputation online. Its not just on these forums, Seen youtube videos, read other forums about them.
