   Well, one of the first days I had the car I heard a buzzing from the 
back that turned out to be a long strip of steel that looked like it 
had formerly been a baffle in the OEM muffler, I ended up pulling it 
out with a pair of needle nose, so the car has never been quiet.  My 
primary concern is that it have a muffler that's decent that I didn't 
spend a fortune on.  The PO had had a weird extractor welded onto the 
end of the pipe at some point which I took off with a hacksaw so it was 
a single pipe exhaust anyway, I'd be fine with that right now.  It is a 
LITTLE loud with no muffler at all though.
