What you're asking is all personal preference. Everyone is going to have their own opinion. The real question is, which do you prefer?

Agreed.

If you want your exhaust to look more stock, go with the Berk, if you want your exhaust to look somewhat stock, go with the Stillen

Or if you want a comparison in a single video:

Have you let someone else drive your car and listen to it personally from the outside? videos dont do it justice!

They are all fairly equal when talking about aftermarket ones. Maybe a few hp/tq difference. The more straighter ones will yield more than ones with bends but only by a couple. The straight ones will have more drone than the ones with bends. Assuming the aftermarket CBEs use straight thru mufflers.

Actually, not yet. I need to do that. I was at the track this past weekend and a number of people commented on
