    Since it sounds like your car is just a driver, I recommend Pacesetter ceramic coated long tubes. I would have a custom Y-pipe made with the Flowmaster merge. The Pacesetter Y-pipe is very raspy because of there merge.
    I actually used the Pacesetter 3" offroad y-pipe and had a muffler shop install the Flowmaster 3"-4" merge on it.,I went with that size merge because I have done H/C/I to my car,and I like to be heard

    Flowmaster makes a 3"to 3 1/2" merge also.

    Pacesetter long tubes, 3" Catted Y pipe with high flow cats (if you cant run an ORY for emission reasons) I actually perfer the sound of a catted one. For exhaust it depends on what your looking for.

    Loudmouth- If you want something loud all the time, here you go. When you put long tubes on this it becomes loud and raspy. Some love it, some hate it.

    GMMG- A little more tame than the LM, but still gets loud as hell with LT's. Sounds great if you run a catted Y imo.

    Hooker- This is what I am running. It sounds stock at idle, but it gets really loud when you open it up. It has a high pitch roar to it. I love it but the only draw back is its a cheaply made system. Mine has a rattle coming from inside the muffler. Just something to think about.

    Magnaflow- Probably the most popular on here. Its a pretty tame exhaust. Has a deep sound to it, reminds me of a mustang for some reason. Priced good, and its one of the best flowing systems out there.
