2017 2.0t Mods

Hey guys, I'm new to the forum and new to the car community in general. I just bought my manual 2017 Camaro 1LT 2.0t last month, and I'm looking for the best mods to buy for it. I'm wanting a new exhaust but I think I'm going to struggle to find a way to get a deep, aggressive sound. The only videos I have found of an aftermarket exhaust all sound kind of like a ricer or whiny and that's what I'm trying to avoid. So if anyone knows of an exhaust system or a way to get a deep aggressive sound on the 2.0, please let me know! I'm also looking into doing a cold air intake - does anyone know the best one for the 2.0? I also can't figure out how to add a profile picture to my account, but that's a thread for another day hahah.

Borla, MRT, and mishimoto sound about as aggressive as you can get. Hence, a 4 cylinder.
Far as intake injen, k&N, AND ZZP are probably the best ones we can get

Yeah, I guess there’s not many options with it being a 4 cyl I was just wondering if there was something floating around I just didn’t know about but thanks for the info on both the exhaust and intake! Looking into other mods as well

Mishimoto "Pro Cat-Back" sounds the best paired with any catted downpipe.

Also, you can put any kind of resonator "mid-pipe" for additional sound depth like the one Borla makes.

Thanks! I'm going to definitely look into that one. I appreciate it!

I'm currently using the zzp catted downpipe with mrt v2 axle back. Gives it a very low tone, not super throaty, nor do you hear the turbo whine up or down from the exhaust, but the power is quite noticeable.
I plan on putting thr borla mid pipe soon and retune along with the throttle body upgrade. I should notice probably 10% deeper tone.
Question for startthe machine. Can I go with those mods along with bigger IC core without upgrading the clutch and bottom end. Heard 350whp is about the cap you want to hit and I'm hitting 306 as of now.
