Best exhaust for 3.8 2013?

So i know theres a few exhausts on the market for the 3.8 2013.

Major one are:

-Ark Grip
-CP-E
-Injen
-Magnaflow

I have been looking for more information on all these models but im still undecided about which one i should choose. The ark exhaust is obviously more expensive (+300), magnaflow being the cheapest but doesnt sound as great. I have been watching videos on youtube for all these exhausts and i really liked the CP-E, sound great imo and the price is reasonable.

I was just wondering if the CP-E is a good choice, if not why and which one would you choose instead?

Thanks

What are you going after? Sound? Performance? Both?

I love my Ark Grip but from what I hear the single exits are the best in terms of performance. That said, I wouldn't swap although the Ark is a little pricey...

I can't say what is best, as I've only added one to my car, the Magnaflow. The reason I went with it was: 1) I'm too old to have an exhaust as loud as the (admittedly super-bad) ARK and 2) the 4" tips fit the factory spot a little better, IMO, than the ARK 3" tips.

That being said, the Magnaflow option is super easy to bolt on, perfect fit, and sounds great at mid to high rev. After a week or two you won't notice them at idle after the vehicle warms up.

There is a noticeable performance addition with the Magnaflow CBE but, as with all of them, the increase may be mostly that you sound like your going faster. Search old threads, there's a whole lot on here arguing between CBE setups. If you are thinking of lowering, the old ARK might be a problem but the new one is like the Magnaflow and will sit up enough for a lower. But, this is a performance car, who would want to ruin that by slamming the car, anyway?

I have the CPE on my 2.0 - should be some similarities and the sound past 4k is phenomenal. Idle is nice and deep. Much louder than the Magnaflow - I consider Magnaflow to be almost as quiet as you can go, but you can hear the CPE from at least a block away.

This is nowhere near true... I agree the Magnaflow is about as quiet as you can get.
