New exhaust, MGP Growler or Yoshimura?

Ok I want a new exhaust for my 2011 ninja 250. It's all black and this is the first mod other the K&N air filter. What do you think is best.
Mgp growler or Yoshimura TRC? They are about the same for the slip-on. Just having a really hard time picking one.

The performance gains with probably be the same. On the other hand, the yoshimura with undoubtedly be a higher quality. Fit, finish, and durability will be higher. I had a growler for literally 10 miles. Way too loud. Sounded like doo-doo. It actually made the bike "feel" slower because of how loud it was. My vote goes with yoshi. Well, really my vote goes to saving up and buying a full area p system. Now thats a sweet set up. More horsepower, high quality, and a fair price too.

Ok well I'm going to check out area p now. I have pretty much you tubed every exhaust out there. I told myself that I won't buy one tell the end of January. So I can research and get the best. I just don't won't to buy one because it's cheap or sounds cool. But I put the question out there and I more of you go with one or the other then I'll get that.
Here's why I picked those exhausts. I like the look if the MGP and it is fairly priced. Next it did get a lot of reviews for being loud, witch is better then stock. I also have a Hotbodies fender delete so I have already ordered once from them and they helped me even install it, good customer service.
Now a Yoshimura is more would be better build I'm sure. The website is super clean and they have over 50 years of research. Now carbon fiber cost to much so I'd chrome is what I can get, I'd like black. The sound is nice from what I have heard on YouTube. They also sell repack kits for there cans unlike MGP. Only downside I can see is that everyone has one on a 250. I won't something a little different. But maybe everyone has one because they are so good.
Mmmmm so I'm still torn.

Area p is hand made by a family owned shop. Either in Cali. Or Florida. Dyno results prove the area p system makes more power than most other setups

Actually, mine might be Area P instead of roaring toys, who knows ? It must have been relabled because it looks identical. Roaring Toys is claiming about 30+hp on their website but their dyno sheets says "Area P". And then I looked at the Area P website and their dyno sheet says "Area P" with the exact same numbers. It must have been relabeled. I'm glad it came with my bike. The only thing I hate about my bike is that the PO put some wide tires for the looks, I can't wait to buy new ones. Akrapovic should make a full exhaust.

This is the Roaring Toyz website, they area using Area P dynosheet:

And the image I saved is the Area P dyno sheet from Area P website:

I wasn't impressed with the one i had. It was getting a discoloration in the fibre from heat.
