Default Recommended EXHAUST for 87 Corvette

I want to change the exhaust on my 87 VET to something that sounds little meaner than STOCK. I'm hearing to just do a CAT BACK change, but there are SO MANY Brands out there?? I want the sound to be a deep mellow roar, but NOT annoying when cruising at Highway speeds. ANY RECOMMENDATIONS on what BRAND such as BORLA, FLOWMASTER, etc.
THANKS for any Advice

I've got Magnaflows on mine, it sounds simply delightful. I raced some kid; afterwards he pulled into the same gas station I did. He said to me, "Damn that thing was quiet but when you stomped on it my friend and I were like, 'Holy ****!'".

I love my Borla Stingers, but on a C4, prepare to be droned out. I even have my tips extended outside the bumper. But due to the C4' s construction, it's a drone fest.

I won't comment on any other exhaust brand as I have no experience with them. Best advice I can give you, check out some C4 vids on Youtube with exhaust.
