Default Muffler suggestions

Hey guys. So I bought a ZZP catback, ZZP res and a 3" GTP mandrel bent system back in December but haven't installed it yet. I put it on hold until now, and I need a muffler but I'm not sure how to cap it all off. I'm trying to be as quiet as possible, I hate loud exhaust. Should I get the Dynomax VT or just get a Walker Quiet-Flow SS? If I get the Dynomax VT I can get a 2.5" or 3", but I'm not sure which means less drone/noise. The Walker Quiet-Flow SS has a 2.25" inlet, so is that too restrictive? I'm willing to sacrifice a bit of performance for quietness, within reason of course.

Anything helps. Thanks.

Stay with the stock muffler then. Mufflers are relatively high flow, but it depends on how they are chambered to reduce noise.

Agreed. Stock c/h body mufflers are usually really good about flowing even when fairly modified. Its all the bits before it that get in the way
