1. Put the muffler closer to the exit. I hope you're not lowered, and you're skilled at fabbing up exhaust because clearance is an issue w/these cars. Side exhaust ain't easy.
2. You don't want back pressure....ever....none. Do a 'search' in this section on back pressure. You'll find all the info you want. Needing back pressure in an exhaust is pure myth. It's all about velocity.
