Default Muffler and Tips

I want to put a muffler and tips on my car. Will I lose low-end torque doing that? And what brand should I go with so I can get a nice rumbly sound, and not a high ricey sound?

Flowmaster 80 series is god on the 3800 I just love it go with it you will too . And you should put a high flow cat on there to while your at it. Gah your going to be going crazy?!

You won't lose or gain torqe....you'll lose if you open the pipe diameter too much, but you won't lose or gain by changing the muffler. You WILL gain horsepower.

You know it.

I'll be making lots of $$ this summer, so I might just take some of that in to my car.

I just gotta find those tips that Allmachtige has.

If you want to hear what it sounds like and see pics, go to my link on cardomain. I love the new flowmaster 80 sound.
Where it says 'listen hear!' just cut the url and paste it into your broswer... its short but to the point, it was 9:30 at night and it was my wife trying to rev the engine.
