Default "best" exhaust inquiry

got an '04 ford recently and wanting to do a full exhaust. any opinions on "best" for sound and performance(practical) i will not be racing or doing any crazy off roading with it. just want a throaty sound that will peform good as well. this is a daily driver and i use it for hauling light loads and for fishing mainly. thanks for any opinions and tips.

i had a flowmaster kit on my 07..sounded great but drone was TERRIBLE....especially at 2500rpm

magnaflow sounds good, solo sounds good...they all seem to have less drone

magnaflow is good (owner here)....borla is supposed to be really good but they're pricey.....one thing I'll say...stay away from flowmaster.....hit or miss on sound between individuals, even through the rev spectrum.....drone bad...and they're restrictive (aka not good for your truck)

Borla Single in/Single out kit. Took an hour to put in, minimal drone, "patented borla sound", wont rust.

If you can find it, Volant made a really nice SS kit for the 04-08 trucks.

Corsa or Borla. Anything I've ever heard from either brand I could listen to all day. Great tone with no drone. Thats what will be going on mine when I ditch my dynomax bullets.

Drone has a lot to do with where you mount your muffler and what series Flowmaster you install...10/40/44/50 series all produce different effects and sounds. I run a 50 series and have no drone...
