Default I went shopping! ~$140 was spent

I got some $18 O'Reilly Auto Parts generic plug wires about a year ago, and I figured it'* time for a change. I went to Advance Auto Parts and bought AC Delco plug wires and one wiring harness for the rear wires. I'd like to put it somewhere along the rear firewall.

I also bought a Dynomax Super Turbo muffler, and I'll do the exhaust work myself. It should sound pretty freaking awesome! I bought a single in, single out, and I would like to do a Y split after the out hole. It looks, however, like it was manufactured for two outlets, but one was welded shut. Can I open that with a hole saw?

Take it back and buy the proper muffler.

The "proper" muffler? What would be that cost? I have some piping already, so I figured I'd save money this way. How much is it for a dual outlet Super Turbo?

Good point. That is nice, but I spent less on the muffler I have now. It would probably be better to say that of the $140 or so that I spent, most of it went to plug wires and a muffler, but I also bought some aluminum wrap solution for exhaust pipe crack (after EM) fixes and such. If it starts coming out too ghetto, I swear I'll change my plans.

A more expensive 'right' muffler is cheaper than a less expensive 'wrong' muffler by the time you finish screwing with the piping, and realize you have to deal with unequal flow.
