Ok, depending on what car you have, you might want to try two straight pipes instead of a muffler. I was debating doing the same thing until I saw the link below(thanks Gene?)

My 540's tailpipe got crunched by a Sentra the other day & I found out that the muffler needed to be replaced if the tips got crushed. Over $600 from the dealer. This no-muffler thing sounded like a cool idea($80). It sounds great! At higher rpm's the car sounds downright nasty. These engines are a 4-liter, 32-valve V8 after all!

I don't know what this sounds like on a six-cylinder yet. But check out the link anyway.

Good Luck!
