I have no BTDT with Flowmaster and have only catalog searched and selected
their quietest 70 series as a possible replacement for the dual exhaust
requirement of the 200Q-20V, and remembering that the line has a wide
variety of configurations, one of which may fit the 10V system.

If your constraints are the thin wallet, and you have several stock 10V
center units on hand, why not install one of them in your system with a
pressure tap with which you can monitor back pressure.  You may likely find
that it is quieter and not too restrictive, and may sufice for a reasonable
