Talking Which Exhaust Option would sound the best?

Hey Guys,

Im thinking of deleting some parts of the exhaust to give it a bit more tone. Which would do you guys think would be best?

1 - Remove muffler and install straight pipes
2 -Remove muffler and install glasspacks or more resonators
3 - Keep muffler, and delete either one or both resonators

Any opinions would be very helpful.

Unless your car is rather modded, I wouldn't remove the muffler (and potentially resonators) and install straight pipes. People will look expecting your car to look like a race car, will see it looks rather oem, and will assume something is wrong with your car. I would suggest removing a resonator and leaving your exhaust or removing your exhaust and putting glasspacks in it's place.
