Do you have any muffler in mind that sounds good? I saw a lot of members using magnaflow universal mufflers to make their duals/quads. Any comment on those?
Personally, i'm a fan of straight-pipe sound. If you can find a shop that will let you 'clamp' down different mufflers to your system to experiment with, that's your best bet, but to my knowledge, shops like that are very rare as most only keep scrap mufflers in stock and the new ones are always on order... :/

Do you plan on doing a dyno run after your exhaust is set up? I'd be interested to see the results. ^__^ i'll give you $1. hehe
