Axle back options

I have the Stainless Works Headers/x-pipe already installed. Curious what you guys recommend for the axle back mufflers. I'm leaning towards Stainless Works for the complete package, but curious for other options. The tone with the stock suitcase muffler sucks!

Are you looking to keep npp functionality if so, that leaves you with borla , flow master or the new corsa , with borla and corsa being $$$$$.

So I have csp headers which are made by stainless works but theyre not the same, so i'm not sure how similar they sound but I love the borla atak axle back paired with it, it is loud though.

Borla should be the answer.

I'm looking hard at AWE's Touring Edition Cat-back Exhaust for Gen6 Camaro SS / ZL1 - Resonated - Diamond Black Tips (Quad Outlet), which means I'm not attached to NPP.

I'll call AWE tomorrow to discuss their products. My hesitation is their two mufflers look mini-suitcase-ish

From what I've heard they are pretty much as loud as the track edition except you don't get any drone

If you already heave headers installed and drone is a concern you have then I would recommend going with one of the Corsa Axle back options. They advertise their system help eliminate drone and I had a Customer in the past who ended up swapping out his axle back exhaust for a Corsa one which solved his drone concerns he had when his headers were installed.

If drone isn't a concern for you and you still want a performance increase at a better price then one of the MBRP systems could be a good choice.

Sound is all preference. I just installed headers and an AWE Touring system and it is probably the best sounding system I've heard at idle. I generally don't think louder cars sound all that great at idle with headers without a good camshaft, but my 2018 with the AWE is probably the best I've heard. I would pick the exact same system again, very unique and good sound.
