wagon owners opinions on cat back exhausts

I am trying to figure out which cat back is right for my 06 wagon that will sound good but won't give me droning and loud noise in the cabin. I've read up on a ton of exhausts and am really just looking for opinions on this one.. I will be running with a catted invidia dp if it ever comes off back order. I know this is yet another noob question so please spare the commentary. Wagon owners your thoughts?? I know some of you will say I am but I am looking for opinions! PS I'm not really feeling the borla hush... Thank you!!!

borla hush is what you are looking for. You'll need an easy to make adapter.

on that. I plan on getting the Borla hush, which is only a couple dB louder than stock, which means it's louder, but not nearly as loud as one of the larger N1-style or something with a huge tip.

here's a clip of it, sounds pretty good to me! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KWebb...h=borla%20hush

Well, you never specified which cat-back that you want opinions on. So until then, this is another thread.

My car is well, it's like 10 lbs of shit in a 5 lb bag...

I have a wagon with an UP, DP and a borla hush. It's not annoying at all. Just gives you a nice tone that let's others know you have a little something going on under the hood.

I would love the Hush. Right now I have the TurboXS axleback and it sounds pretty good. I cant complain. I plan on getting a hush whenever I run into some extra money.

geez.. tough crowd.. the only exhaust that i'm really not interested in is the one everyone thinks i should get.. i don't particularly care for the look of the borla and the sound is not that appealing either.. i am looking for OPINIONS from wagon owners who have exhausts that do not drone in their cabin.. i have a list of exhausts in mind but am not sure about any of them.. ie perrin dual tube (with silencer if necessary), stromung dual tip, B&B, greddy evo2 (but i read it doesn't mate to aftermarket dps) prodrive axle back.. just looking for opinions on various exhausts people are running..

I am a wagon owner and can say that the TurboXS does not drone the cabin (the normal one, not the RFL).

I recently installed the Prodrive axle back on my '06 wagon. I love it. The second day that I had the exhaust on the car, I went on a 500 mile road trip. Never once was it to loud or droning at high speeds. I recommend it highly.

I currenty have COBB's catback along w/ catted downpipe, I'm very happy w/ this set-up. No drone, sounds great when you get on it. Kinda wish it was louder though
