Fog, consider doing that (I replaced mine, it was crap), and also maybe under the back seat and behind the seat back. Carpet padding is cheap. I'm going to beef mine up in the back seat area for sure now. A remarkable improvement for drone-killing.

TOG Headers, no cat, 2.5" custom bent in the stock location to a 99 Trans AM WS6 muffler, The best part is that there are so many new body style F body guys that are ditching the stock mufflers, it is a very large muffler with great flow that has a raspy tone with no annoying drone.

Anyone have sound clips of an SSEI with any kind of aftermarket exhaust?

Yours is very similar to mine stock. No resonator, and only 1 year difference (virtually identical)

Read this thread:

And here'* some more of mine:

Couldn't help noticing your signature. The reason your 92 is slower than your bone stock 95 is due in part to your 3" exhaust. You're killing your backpressure, and have lost low-end torque. You need a TON of mods to support that size of exhaust.

I took your advice Will and installed 3/4" underpadding on the floor - what a difference that made!!! I'll be going back for more underpadding to do behind the seat.

i went with a Magnaflow #14266 and it has a deep mellow sound at idle and medium loud at WOT. I paid $145 for it. I wanted a louder sound than I got, but it will do.

Remove the resonator and you'll be louder, put a high flow cat in, and you'll be louder.
