Try an Injen intake. It adds an aggressive sound.

An intake such as AFE's system will add a bit more growl to the engine, along with some freed up HP/TQ. I would suggest looking into an aftermarket muffler system such as Magnaflow as you mentioned (although might be a bit loud/drone)...another option is to delete the resonators or muffler delete.

I would maybe talk to Craven since your down here in Southern California, not sure how close to Ventura County, but i know he is working on a Custom Muffler and I'm looking at doing his muffler. I want more performance out of the muffler and not really loud.

get the AFE intake. 10Xbetter than injen. and it has the heat shield.

as for exhaust, i recommend the topspeed muffler. with a res delete. its cheap and sounds fantastic.

The magnaflow muffler has a good sound to it, there really isnt much drone if any at all. But it does give it a more aggresive/ deeper sound.

Theres a quick sound clip in my thread here, its not the best but hopefully it helps...

Do an intake for the sound! If you go muffler i find it obsessive , even the Performance one. If you are automatic than there will be a drone too!

I Use the aFe intake, its awesome. Sounds so clean and provides a nice growl. A good heat shield and when you pair it with some scoops it really keeps the intake temps down a lot more.

Let me know if I can help you out with anything

+1 for the PE, it's expensive but so worth it, I honestly just go for drives now just to listen to the exhaust it's incredible
