GC Overland 5.7 exhaust thoughts..

Newbie here, guys! It's a pleasure to be here! I've been surfing through various different posts on here about exhaust mods and I've narrowed it down to two ideas...
-delete suitcase, replace with straight pipes
-delete resonators, replace with straight pipes

Now, I'm leaning towards deleting the suitcase to get that angry rumble at startup, however, I'm wary of drone and rasp... I want her to SOUND like a Hemi, but I don't want it to be shrill or overly loud... This vehicle is new to me, like 1 week new, and I'm starting to explore minor mods. (both my ideas can be returned to stock) Any tips would be GREATLY appreciated.

Note: Although I knowwwww the Corsa setup is the best of the best, I just can't justify the $1,800 price tag when I "know a guy" at the exhaust shop that can hook me up.

Re: GC Overland 5.7 exhaust thoughts..

Listened to a dozen videos and I think IF a simple delete is all that's wanted then removing the muffler and leaving the rear resonators has the overall better sound...it's clearly the louder of the two. Alternatively Blastin Bob's has delete pipe options for the rear one of which has a small glasspack resonator. I plan to use those and swap in a couple small magnaflow mufflers up front with a H pipe union or maybe X pipe...

I've done the same...hours of listening to all the youtube clips and going back and forth. I think, for now, I'm going to delete the suitcase and have an Xpipe welded in. Down the road, if it's too loud or tinny, I'll add a suitable muffler in place of the stock resonators.
