Default muffler question

Figured this would be a good place to post this.

Projet SSE1990 is finally started and one thing that needs to get changed is the muffler. I went to crappy tire ( canadian tire) and they have 2 options one in one out OR one in dual outlet.
My car currently has one outlet running to a dual tip. Since I have to change the muffler anyways, what are some good suggestions on what to go with. There is room to go dual outlet muffler but have the tips come out the back, not hidden under the rear bumper like they are now.

Single, dual???
and what brand, model.
Now is the best time to do it, I won't get to drive the car much ( I am out of town all the time) but my fiance will use it as her daily driver, she also like the idea of dual exhaust on the car and a nice sound to it, so nothing really stopping me except for $$$. I don't want to spend a fortune on it either.


Thanks guys/gals
