Best exhaust for a Liberty

I know it has been asked before but I'm asking again.
What is the best exhaust for sound, power, increased mpg and for the $$$$, made for a Liberty?

I have a Borla dual catback and it sounds awesome. BUT they are expensive (I think about 600) and I have to agree with powerslave it was probably equipped for best power and torque from the factory. I put an AEM Bruteforce intake on and the two combined probably helped a bit but tough to tell since I bought my 02 with this exhaust already on it. My current gas mileage is about 16mpg mixed and I have put about 100k on it in sometimes salty northern MD and it seems like a tough well built exhaust but makes it tough to change the gear oil in the rear diff!

The way new vehicles are designed, its tough to really improve on what is there from the factory. They already breath really good, and alot of add-ons out there hurt power if anything in practical. real world use. Now if you want noise, loud farting UPS truck noise from a V6, then you can get one of the many mufflers out there. Keep in mind, reducing back pressure has a negative impact on the lower end of the power band, the area you need most.

I run a MagnaFlow 14" UltraFlow race muffler and then just a turndown.Have to since room was not there for anything else due to the long arms.Yeah lost some low end power but if all goes well this summer I won't have to worry about power when the V8 goes in.
