First, thanks to all who have given me advice on the 3.4 build so far. It's coming along!
Just to refresh: 95 Firebird 3.4, .030 overbore, Edelbrock cam, CCE headers, 390 Holley, single exhaust,
2-1/4. I have listened to many of the posted You Tube videos of how various cars sound with this swap, but don't trust the sound representation on my computer--all I'm getting is confused

Now I am looking for recommendations on mufflers. Not loud, but throaty, no blatties please! I want to hear my music...Since the car is lowered, I am using just a single hopefully round ? at end of pipe, but am open to suggestions. Any you might have would be welcome. I had a Peco system on my roadster, and loved the sound it made-- just as a reference. Thanks again and...
Cheers!
Terry

Not round, but...

The best sounding muffler is undoubtedly the Thrush Turbo. It's got classic "tone". Dynomax's Super Turbo version has glass in it, and therefore is a little quieter, so I might swap to those if I ever start feeling old.

How high quality do you want?

Middle quality - Magnaflow

Top quality - Solo Performance - look at their QR series. Bulletproof stainless steel.
