What series MBRP should I get?

I've been looking around for a new exhaust system and decided on an MBRP 4inch single. However, I'm not sure what series to go with. What is everyone running? What advantages am I getting with the Pro series vs the Performance series for instance other than the material they're made with?

I'm not looking for anything too fancy or outrageously expensive. I just want a good sound for my money but I also don't want to buy the cheaper performance series and find out that it's garbage. Any help would be great!

an exhaust is an exhaust. Your moms 5" exhaust will sound the exact same as my brothers 5" in alaska. There is no difference. Find the biggest pipe that comes with a cat for the cheapest.

I would say buy the cheapest one. Decide if you want muffler or no muffler. I bought the cheapest kit they had without a muffler. Didn't come with a tip. I ordered a angled mbrp tip and called it a day. Looks like every other exhaust you see, just not t-409 or whatever there top of the line material is. I'd rather save money and put it towards other upgrades. I'm sure aluminum sounds the same as the other materials you get.

If all you want is a good exhaust and are not concerned about how pretty it is, then I'd reccomend the MBRP XP (T409) series. It's still stainless steel and has a lifetime warranty. The only real difference between it and their Pro series (T304) is how it will look. The T304 SS has more chromium and nickel in it, so it should never get any surface rust on it and, other than getting dirty, should always look shiney. The T409 SS will eventually gray out and may even get a little surface rust on it, but it should never rust through. If it does, and develops a hole, MBRP will replace that component. It's very rare. That's pretty much it.
