This is kinda a hard decision to make.

Have you browsed the youtube for exhaust videos on the car? I think they may be hard to come by, but you may find a few clips so you can get an idea of the sound.

I personally like magnaflow and borla over flowmaster. They are a bit more "mellow" and refined sounding to me. Flowmasters can be a bit poppy and harsh IMO. As far as quality between all the major brands, i think you are splitting hairs, they all make equal quality parts.

Sounds good to me!

I love my thrush setup, but pbasil is right you have to listen around for your exact car configuration. What motor do you have?
