In my opinion you can't beat the sound of the corsa systems. Others come close, but you just can't replicate the aggressive yet refined tone they have.

Your also not going to gain much of any power from just a cat back system. Basically just sound.

The best is whatever you like sound wise.

It's hard to judge exhaust by sound clips on a computer or phone, unfortunately hearing them live is the best way. I also would just focus on the sound and forget the hp element as it will be minimal anyways.
Also, the mufflers in the USA may be mounted right side up as opposed to upside down in Australia where I see you are from, so it makes it even harder to judge from sound clips.

I would not waste money getting a whole exhaust system that replaces the new pipes on your truck unless absolutely necessary. Just replace the muffler.

LOL, each exhaust sound can be music to one person's ears and an absolute nightmare to the next person. It's totally subjective. Personally, if it's a daily driven vehicle, I will always err on the side of being quiet. Exhaust drone gets tiresome real fast.

i agree, the corsa sounds like it should be on a camaro, not a truck.

i like my flowmaster 44, its very deep and has a nice throaty sound. the problem with that is that the sound isnt as clean as a straight through muffler above about 3500 rpm. the carven has a really nice sound, but is crazy loud on a cold start and has a funny background sound at low-mid throttle

IMHO Borla always sounds great. This time I chose the Touring and I love the sound. Dont understand when people say they are a notch higher in sound than stock....mine are much louder/deeper than stock.

I have the Flow Super 10 and I honestly love it. Especially if I hit a tunnel...I definitely let her sing!

I think Borla and Carven have the best sounding systems, little deeper than Corsa which is great too.

I agree. But I would specify Borla S Type for my preference. The Borla Touring is a little mild for my taste.
