I currently have a muffler delete on the stock exhaust, it sounds okay, but I’m looking for something more professional. The only option I found was trubendz and it’s a good price for me. Does anybody have any experience how it sounds? Better than the stock muffler delete? Next step is high flow cat too, if anyone has any recommendations for that as well.

Trubendz sounds pretty boomy and harsh in my experience. The muffler is way up by the catalytic converter, with nothing but straight pipe all the way back, so they get a nasty rasp. Best to add in a small resonator or some kind of straight-through muffler in the back, up under the rear bumper; that mellows it out and gives it the European V6 noise you want.

Here’s a video of My setup that I installed today, broke a hangar installing so my left one is sad until I take a trip to auto zone.

So that's a resonator at the rear bumper, not the muffler? I wonder how simply eliminating it would sound, and save a little weight, too.

Nah, on a stock system, that's the muffler lunchbox up under the back bumper, and a straight-through resonator in the middle under the center console. As long as you have something in both spots, the sound will be nice - no drone, no rasp. If you only have one, it should be the one at the back end, but the Trubendz system is just the opposite. I just installed mine today and it's pretty harsh compared to my resonated Borla.
