[V8] Stebro kills The Black Mariah?

I have thought about this.  And this is a viable option at this point.  I am
not thrilled at the thought of trying (again) to get one of the little shops
around who do muffler and exhaust work to work on my car.  One of them
simply refuses to work on Audis, and the other is of unknown capability.
There are NO "muffler" shops around, and I won't darken the door of the
Midas place here.  

What I need is a cat back system.  Both the muffler and resonator are going
downhill fast.  

Today I am going to go to the little shop in Hancock that has always
inspected me before.  They may pass me, if they don't listen too closely.
If so, that will buy the time necessary to frig with a different solution.  

Maine is getting very tough about vehicle inspections.  What used to "slide
by" is simply not allowed any more, and the inspectors are every more
present.  At least we don't "do" emissions testing here!

 I just don't understand this.  My 200q20v has been running the last three
years with a pair of glasspacks where the middle muffler goes and a
junkyard rear muffler.  Cost me $150.  Emits no unusual noises.
