I dont even know if its an 80 series... the guy at the muffler shop said it was when i took it up there... he said with no cats and its still that quite he was sure it was an 80. the 80 on my car is quite like stock even with no cats!
    the 80 series is made to run very quiet, unlike the 44's. you got rid of the cats, but do you still have the resonators on it? that could make a difference, but should be a small difference

    pipe lenght and size does make a big difference. one of my friends has an s-10 with a 283 in it, same exhaust on his with tail pipes ( about 3 foot of pipe with a 90 bend in it) and no tail pipe sound completely different.... in your particular case it might or might not make that big of a change

    i put a 3in straight through resonator on it... i know that the res made it quite! but i still want something diff... maybe a magnaflow or something

    I know a set of longtube headers with 3" dual exhaust and a set of super 44's sound really good
