Default Muffler question

I had always wondered why some bonneville SEs had a dual outlet on the one side, and you 93 SLE owners cleared that up for me. I'd like to add this to my 97SE at some point. A few questions, is that the same muffler with a dual outlet, or is it a different type. And does GM stock them, or should I just get an aftermarket unit. I don't really care about added HP or making a lot of noise. But I love the sound of the 3800 (especially when it starts) and I'd like to make it a little louder with the look of the dual exhaust.

Go aftermarket. It'll be cheaper and sound better than stock.

If you're just looking for something with more of a prescense and a LOW tone, you'll love the muffler. My mom said it'* the loudest stock car she'* heard. In the cold it sounds like a v8 at start up! Ol' Blue eye'* has had his confused for a v8 as well.

Try getting a high flow cat first. Then get this muffler. It'* only a single sided double outlet option as far as i know.
