Default Age old question

Looking to install duals on my non-turbo Cruiser, and wondered which would be considered the best bet for me. I am looking for a good throaty sound. Currently have a single Borla cat-back system but like the looks of the duals. So, I am looking for your opinions. I am trying to decide between BTG, Borla and Basanni. Not real concerned with the drone at 3000 rpm, because I usually am running below that.

Hey, if your not worried about the drone, I just went with the Borla duals (mainly because I picked them up cheap). Great sound in idle or when you stomp on it but I couldn't stand the drone on my ageing ears.

I cast a vote for BTG as being the best designed because they have a "Y" pipe that splits left-right exhaust. Also, each piece you can look right thru - THAT's flow-thru!
Friend had BTG & I had Bassani on N/A PTs and we went side-to-side: The BTG is deeper, more bass.
Best price I found when I got mine was PTWarehouse, but now they're high.

I would highly recommend the Flowmaster kit. It has great quality for an outstanding price, with a trusted name. The flowmaster kit has a nice deep tone at idle, and that throaty sound you're looking for until about 3500 RPM, when it quiets down somehow.

Thanks to all three of you for responding. Still looking and will wait for a few more responses. I do like the idea of they Y pipe on the BTG though.
