what make muffler are you getting ? and are you going to keep the exhaust pipe stock
or are you going to a 3" pipe from the cat back.

Mine is the second to last Bonne.
It sounds a lot less like Rice than most would have you believe.

Twin Magnaflows baby

Rods was voted the nicest, deepest sounding but my belief is it'* because it is muted by the Cat he is running and I am not.

Shadow427 runs straight pipes all the way with only a resonator. It'* so loud, it hurts your ears and can be heard when you're driving 1/4 mi behind him on the highway.

Rounds sound is nice because it doesn't attract the wrong kind of attention.....if you know what I mean 'Officer'.

Cowbell trumpets give it the sleeper look.......just ignore the glare of polished stainless.

m'eh, i dont like the oval tips my car comes with. they look half sooty and nursty lookin. i dont have the $$$ to redo the whole exaust in 3". i was gonna put in a dynomax muffler, but i dont see a center inlet/outlet. the aerochamber suggestion is a good one, ill consider that. and ill check out the magnaflow option, too. im still debating on whether to just cut out the damn resonators. how much does it slow down exaust flow? would it even be worth it? also, would it hurt me if i just put in the cat on the existing downpipe? im not gonna do headers, or anything more(fbody of some sort will be my "project car" eventually).
thanks for the responses guys.

If you cut out the resonators, it will be very very loud.

If you want to make a dramatic difference start with pems or headers. The closer to the combustion chamber you make exhaust improvements, the better.

Paul - What are you using for the Y-pipe? I'm looking to convert to a full 3" to the y-pipe.

Thanks,
Tommy
