I had a cherry bomb on mine once. My neighbors said it sounded awful. Maybe cause they were dumbass'*. Really, I ended up putting the stock muffler back on. Had a nice throaty sound to it.

Lets see I have a 99 I just put a dynomax muffler on and I really like it. It has a mellow tone to it but it never sounds ricey. Sitting still the car sounds like a V-8 rather than a V-6. Look on www.hoganperformance.com and you will get the muffler for less than $100.00

If you are looking for a little more rumble at idle and low end than stock and still silence on the highway

I can offer up what I have. It'* a Merit OEM replacement. Came from Rockauto.com at $85, I also got the tail pipes ...total shipped was $130'*. It goes together and fit just like OEM.

I'm not a loud exhaust lover, it has a nice rumble w/o being annoying or loud that completely disappears at highway speeds for no drone at all.
