If the car is any semblance of a daily driver I'd stick with actual mufflers. When I get some spare cash I'll probably throw some mufflers on.
Thanks for the advice. Im planning on putting in the cutout after the headers, but with some more straight pipe to have the exhaust exit near the side of the car. It seems that when the exhaust cutout is too soon, the car can sound kinda bad, maybe from a lack of back pressure.
Like this SRT-4 sounds good in the higher rpm band, but kinda bad at around 2000-3500 rpm
