I'm trying to sort out what exhaust should be on my car and what exhaust
I want on my car.  The car is a 1982 Rabbit that I just bought and which
appears to have various previous owner modifications.  Looking at the
parts CD, I believe that I should have a connecting pipe connected to
the header and the muffler hooked on at the rear.  In particular, it
looks like I don't need a corrugated pipe and that I don't need a

Thus, the questions are: 1) Am I correct that that was the original
configuration?  2) Is there any advantage to going to the later exhaust
with the pre-muffler? 3) Alternately, is there some aftermarket exhaust
that I should use and avoid all these questions?  The car needs a number
of things, so I'd like to cheap out on the exhaust this time at least.
