Any ideas for a good sounding exhaust that isn’t too loud but loud when you want it to be. Car is stock 3g 2000 gt

Borla made (still makes?) a kit for these cars. I've never heard it in person, but they have a good reputation for good sounding exhausts that aren't obnoxious.

I’ve heard borla from others as well now i have some cheap headers, 2.5in from headers then after the car it opens to 4 and it’s just unreal loud for no reason. Would i need to purchase headers that are worth a damn or would i be okay with what is on it

I think you can stay with the headers for now. Replacing the 4 in exhaust should make a pretty big difference. No need to have exhaust that big on a stock 6g72. Just makes it loud like you said.

The cheap ebay headers have unequal length runners and the primary ports don't line up with the heads correctly. Also by changing the headers you lost the catalytic converters which filter a lot of noise. This makes them raspy and a lot louder. If you can find 3G OBX headers I'd recommend those. They're harder to find now but definitely worth the money.

I don’t think i got them from eBay but it’s not any better than eBay they are what look to be long tube. So by buying the borla exhaust, You are saying it will not fit?

The Borla system is a catback kit. If you got rid of the main cat when you put the headers on, you might have to fabricate something to connect the headers to the borla kit. Also, if you're missing the main cat, you should add it back in to reduce some of the noise. Otherwise the Borla kit is likely going to be too loud still.

Quality pre-fab exhaust is expensive. No way to get around that. Cheapest would be to stay with the headers you have and figure out a way to connect the cat back. Either that or put the stock exhaust manifolds and main cat back on if you have them. No fab required for the cat back.

I have a Magnaflow muffler and I like it. The idiot that had the car before me gutted the main cat and left the two precats. It did not sound too bad. I have heard those cheap ebay mufflers on our cars and they sound like completely ass.

I think you mean muffler, not tip. The tip is just the shiny thing at the end of the muffler.
