So I just got a 2015 genesis 5.0. Ive been reading a lot about getting more sound out of that V8. I am wondering which one of these options is most cost effective, with best sound and least amount of drone. In terms of priority, No drone is biggest priority.

1) Shoud I just get a magnaflow muffler? Was reading that this produces a lot of drone/
2) Cutouts with Xpipe? Sounds like this is the best compromise between a full catback exhaust system and just replacing a muffler.
3) Magnaflow 19116 catback exhaust system.

Can someone please give more feedback and total cost of the everything if they had it done.

Exhaust will drone but keep it to a reasonable sound level, with outcuts its just plain loud. I have a 4in cutout on the supra. Between fabbing the x pipe and both cutouts your looking at over 650 easily. But it is nice to have a switch to go from quiet to loud in 2 seconds. Make sure you make some tips for the cutouts or the rattle will get super annoying.

I’m in the same boat, debating on exhaust. I attempted cutouts but because there is very little room surrounding the exhaust pre-mufflers, cats, res etc. it proved impossible sadly.. I’m back to stock now

Cutouts can fit on our cars, a member here has installed them already.

Sxth Element engineering should be releasing their full exhaust pretty soon, I'm not sure about the price though

I just deleted the muffler and straight piped it. It's cheap ($150 at local muffler shop), relatively quiet at low rpms and drone isn't too bad.

The second video doesn't work.

How much will it cost for the stock diffuser?

that sounds great Freddy.. That maybe just what some are looking for with a slight rumble.. How is the drone if any?

Not really any when your coasting but as soon as u step on it in sport mode it almost sounds like a exotic V8

Any updates on aftermarket options for 5.0?
Will I be able to fit 50 Delta flows from Flowmaster?
40s are too loud.
