I'd stay away from Pypes catback.

You need to figure out what exactly you want to change about your exhaust before you buy something.

Get full length headers, that will give you the "sound" you really want...

I had pypes and changed to flowmaster... I didn't mind the sound, but it wasn't what I was looking for.

+1 Flowmaster is king if you want low pitch, not too loud. They are not a ''growly'' sound like most of the others. In fact, if Flowmaster would just come out with a stainless system already I would probably have them. They rust at the welds and look like ass. I have long tubes, H-pipe, no cats and magnaflows. It is a deep tone and not loud at idle. Then when I get on it its pretty damn loud. The deep tone has a lot to do with the 4v 4.6L. A 5.0 will naturally sound more growly. That said, I don't know anyone who has the pypes kit nor have I heard them. I certainly would not ditch Flowmasters to try out Pypes.

I've heard great things about magnaflows. I have flowmasters, and for the most part they're great, but but with no cats its too loud for my taste.

I hear ya there. The only kit I would deffinately say stay away from is the SLP loudmouth II. The one with resonators rather than mufflers, it is just obnoxious sounding. However, there is no such thing as ''too much'' for some folks.
