So, I had a shop build a custom cat back system. I had the resonators removed and 2.5" pipe to Magnaflow mufflers with Megan tips. Here's a couple of pics while it is on the rack being finished. It sounds unbelievable! Inside the car with the windows up it's really mild, even at highway speeds. I had them paint the pipe and mufflers black and with the car on the ground you can only see the stainless tips. Once it was finished it was getting dark out, so no pics of it on the ground until tomorrow. I took a video of the sound with my phone, but it sounds horrible, so when I can I'll take some with my 1080 HD video camera.

I tried two different cameras and the sound isn't remotely close to real life. I wouldn't want to disappoint. I'm going to do a drive by video and see if that's better. Hopefully this weekend.

Here's the video of the exhaust. It's not the best, but hopefully you can get a better idea of the sound.

Too raspy for my liking. I like them with a fine tuned sound. Along the lines of what Joe-Z would come out with.

Well, I helped you decide not to go with Magnaflow. Let us know how you make out.
I researched a lot prior to getting mine done and definitely know that the resonator should be removed. I heard an axle back Magnaflow with the resonator still in and it was quiet as the stock exhaust...

Is the resonator the muffler in the middle of the car? Or the little guys in the very back?
