Default Need some advice!

I'm looking into which muffler I should get. I'm doing LT's, TSP Y, and then I'm stuck. I'm going to have the exhaust stop just before the rear axles or right after, probably leaning more to before the rear axle. I just need a good sounding race muffler. I've been looking at Dynomax race bullets, but I can't make up my mind. Any thoughts?

Just put a cutout on it and any muffler. It will sound like the world is ending, or you can bolt the plate on the cutout if you dont feel like disturbing the peace

I'm not going to have a cut out because I'm not having a full exhaust.

race mufflers offer just about no decible reduction. Are you sure you want your car to be that loud? Trust me it gets pretty annoying.

I guess im one of the few people on here that know the difference between being loud and sounding good. Loud doesn't mean fast, loud doesn't mean it has a good tone.

At work many of the cars we build are loud, but thats not because it doesn't have any mufflers. Its because it has a 500+ cubic inch bigblock under the hood. Think about if you go the track with a basically stock car that is really loud. Everyone will think that it is really fast, but all you will have is a really f'in loud 13 second car.

I had the Borla XR-1 on my car for a while...dumped right before the axle, sounded mean as hell only reason I got rid of it was because my ears would be ringing after a long drive (not exaggerating)
