I want to go for the sleeper image this year. I'm looking for a muffler that will make my car really quiet, but not give a whole lot of restriction. Is this possible? I do not want to give up much performance to do this. If it is going to do that, I will just scrap the whole idea. I know that some companys like flowmaster say that their mufflers can actually increase flow, but that is probably just a sales pitch. How 'bout it? Any experts on this subject?

There are a lot of muffler manufactures out there that can help you. Flowmaster is one of them, Borla race muffler is another one. I run a copy of Zoomie Lowbachs, they are a centerless auger style. My brother had a guy build him a custom collecter which im not sure how its built internally but it gives his car a very unique sound and when he is in the gas his car is by far the quietest I have ever heard but he doesnt loose any performance.

I have run the exhaust system from Coleman, and it has performed very well. I do run 180 degree headers, and the Coleman system is a 2 into 1. It comes with all the necessary equipment and brackets needed and really quieted my car down without giving up horsepower. Checked this with a chassis dyno and very impressed. Consider over the top or 180 degree headers if you're reevaluating your exhaust system. You won't regret it.

Poboy, I run the 3" moroso spiral flow mufflers on my street stock. They have really quieten it down. I called moroso and asked about the power loss. they told me i would loose 4 to 6 hp, but gain some torque down low. I also made some modifications to the exaust pipe routing to make it sound and perform like the late models with 180 deg. headers. Deed
