I bought a used eBay n1 style exhaust, cut the muffler off, heated the pipe red hot and banged it in so it wouldn't hit the rear diff, then made a 45* turn down tip. And it is quieter than the exhaust with that fart cannon attached........ Yea, cutting the muffler off made it quieter ROFL! At idle it's very quiet, quieter than the new cars with SPT mufflers by far, while cruising I can talk on the phone without issue and I have a wagon. Take that for what it's worth.

It's really easy to try it yourself. Go buy about 1.5 feet of three inch pipe and one of those nice stainless exhaust band clamps. Hack your muffler off with a saw and put the pipe on the end. If you don't like it, just toss the muffler back on.
