This many seem like an odd question, but what about a muffler replacement on a stock 3.2? I don't really want to add daul exhaust as I don't have the coin to do it, & I don't want to cut the rear bumper. I also don't need to squeeze out any horsepower...

I'm just looking to get a little more sound out of it without going overboard. I also don't want the sound to resemble a juiced up civic or a Ferrari 348 with a tubi (that'd be cool)

Any ideas? Thanks!

how big is the stock piping under the car? you could do the piping first and not worry about the muffler. it will give you a better sound note, if you get a inch or just a half inch bigger pipping, and possibly a smaller resonator

Never thought of that. Back in high school I had a 84' firebird with a 4 cyl. Yes, go ahead and laugh, a 4 cyl. I cut off the stock muffler and added a Thrush muffler that added a really nice sound. It didn't sound pathetic, it kinda sounded like a stock 305, ahem, I ,mean 5.0 litre.:thumbsup:

you should be able to browse through magnaflows catalong and find a nice muffler with tips that fits the stock piping...then just have someone cut the old muffler off and weld the new one on with the nice tips...
