Exhaust help needed

If anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated. I own a 2017 challenger T/A 5.7
I'm currently looking at a mid muffler delete, possibly with a resonator delete. What would be a better choice for mid muffler replacement, straight pipe or a x pipe? I'm looking at Carven mid muffler deletes, i cant seem to find any reviews though. The car is already loud, but i'm looking to make it louder when shes starting up, and when i'm on the gas from a little to a lot. Any recommendations? All help is greatly appreciated!

not what you probably want to hear, but I would not suggest you do both reso & muff delete..thats going to be waaaay too loud for everyone else (ie: neighbors, cops, passengers) its also fatiguing as #%!! to drive for any period of time. muff delete is common, easy & cheap. reso delete gives a great sound but probably best to buy the kit, both can lead to drone. good luck.

Mid muffler delete is a couple sections of 3" pipe at any exhaust shop. If you wa nt some pre made talk to Blastinbob.

I would consider some mini race bullets to help with the rasp unless you like that.

Something smaller to replace the resonators will help with tone but not be crazy loud.

Start cheap and go with the mid muffler delete. Keep the rear resonators. I've heard that the mid-delete works great with the Active Exhaust. Tempted to try it on mine.

I was thinking just doing mid muffler delete with carven replacements
Not sure if i can or can't link it, but these are them, https://www.americanmuscle.com/carve...-57l-hemi.html
Any ideas for how that would increase the sound? Rasp doesn't bother me, i'm just looking to make her a noticeable amount louder. Only thing thats making me not straight pipe now that i think about it is that being illegal haha
Edit- Drone is okay for me, i don't mind it

If you get the tazer you can keep the exhaust valves open through SRT track mode. ($250 for a new Tazer)

https://zautomotive.com/product/tazer/


Otherwise, you could get HP tuners and tune the opening of the active exhaust to your liking but it's not cheap. ($300 for MPVI2 tuner + $250 to unlock the PCM + $100 for 2 credits)

Well mid-muffler delete would be the cheapest and IMO most effective.

Otherwise throw some money at it and do what this guy did.

Thank you for the videos and advice, they both helped.
I'm probably going with mid muffer delete, im just stuck between replacing that with straight pipe or the x pipe (carven exhaust mid muffler delete)
Anyone have opinions for which would sound better and louder?
