I had a custom cat back exhaust done by local shop . I couldn't wait for the muffler companies to get their act together and produce a system. I went with IMCO performance mufflers (out of Texas) and stainless resonaters that came off of a supercharged grand prix for tone (cost $700 Canadian for everything installed). They sound great, and the difference in performance is more than a little noticeable! Whichever system you choose will let the engine breathe, and don't forget to do the intake as well. A motor has to inhale as well as exhale to get performance! The Airraid box is working well for me, and was an easy install. You also will not beleive the size of the stock resonators when they come off your car, they are about the size of five gallon gas cans, and weigh about 20 lbs each! There are more than two choices to go with out there so hurry up and do somethig! Your HEMI is suffocating!
I voted Borla because that is what I decided to do for my car. But I really think it matters as to what sound you are trying to achieve. Most of us don't have enough experience with multiple exhaust systems to really give pro's or con's of each system. I made my decision based on the sound clips available and recommendations from a few other folks. I honestly don't think you would do wrong going either way.
I waited for Borla because I don't like really like exhausts. I want performance, but not noise. The 300 is a luxury car to me, not a Viper rattling my ass. Plus the additional bonus of being under warranty from Mopar is great.
Yep, and even their performance engine warranty sucks!

Well guys I already have the Airaid filter which made the sound of my car more aggressive and I have ordered the MagnaFlow cat-back exhaust system today from Jhon @ hottexhaust.com and the price was really good which encouraged me to get it but the thing that let go for it that it has the sound of the american mean machine.
I also have the wood dashkit on order which is shipped and am waiting for delivery in the next couple of days + dash cover which will have the same delivery date as the wood dash kit.
I have ordered the pillers & the T-rex billet grill and I am expecting them in around one week or so...
Thanx guys for the info. 'bout the exhaust systems......
