Heh, that is Verrrry subjective.
I like Magnaflow, but you'll hear all sorts of opinions.
Either find a good custom exhaust shop or/and listen to a few on some modded PT's.

If you don't want it somewhat LOUD then better stay away from both Magnaflow and BTG. I have had experience with both of these performance exhaust systems on my GT(s)--great systems but by no means quiet, at least to my ears. If you decide to get either system make sure you install a resonator between the cat and muffler to "quiet things down". Good luck.

Gary,
if you use Magnaflow's PT exhaust, it's loud. My set up is different and uses a universal transverse muffler, which is much quieter...hence, go custom and you can build it to the sound you like.

Steve, if you go custom make sure they do mandrell bends and I'd go at least 2 1/2" piping. I've got a 2 1/2" Heartthrob catback single exhaust and I love it. Not too loud and it sounds great.
