Default Quiet exhaust?

My ravin muffler has some pretty nasty rust and looks like it'* going to rust through in the near future. And i'm sick of hearing my parents bi$%h about how i wake everyone up in the morning when i warm up my car. Not to mention, i wouldn't mind having a quiet car, just to throw people off.
Do stock mufflers really flow that bad?
Is there some sort of quiet performance muffler?
Is there a resonator that is more quiet than my stock one?
Try not to think i'm crazy.

I'm looking into replacing my Ravin, soon too. Not because it'* rusting, but because it is just too loud.

Wouldn't getting a larger muffler be able to soften the sound without losing performance. As for the resonator why not just remove it . That ought to quiet it down but you may get some crackling when you rev it.

What years was the N10 avialable?
Would the SSE/SSEI muffler fit no problem from a 96-99?

I do have an N10, it'* basically the SSE exhaust 88-91, and the high flow option until 93 on SE'*. It'* a great sound, and loudest stock, but it won't wake anyone up like aftermarket.

Resonators help too.

Get a Edelbrock RPM Series, i´m buying one for my Custom made exhaust system.

These Edelbrock mufflers represent a revolutionary change in exhaust technology. The internal Tru-Flo® core utilizes equal-length runners made from 409 perforated stainless steel. A special high-temperature, ceramic material is packed between the outer case and the inner core. Exhaust passes through the core with minimal turbulence, unlike mufflers with baffles. The ceramic packing withstands temperatures of over 1800° F. The result is a muffler which runs quieter, is less restrictive and produces more power than other designs. All RPM Series mufflers have a limited lifetime warranty, are stock replacement parts and 50-state street legal. Testing verified that these mufflers ran quieter and produced more power than the competition. Our 3" center in/center out on a 1966 Shelby Mustang produced only 91 db. A competitor’* muffler on the same car measured 94 db. In dyno tests on a B/B Chevy, #5526 cranked out 14 ft/lbs. more torque at 5000 rpm than competitor’* 3" single offset muffler.

I can tell you how it sound when my system is done and on the car

the 92-93 only...i have one, there are a few H bodies (both series one and series two)on my campus and I am def the loudest....
and if you have the 2.5 piping the SSE/SSEI will fit right up in there
