muffler choice

Hey guys, i have a 98 mitsubishi eclipse, i recently ordered a muffler off the internet, but the money got lost in the mail, i don't want a full exhaust for it, and i also don't want to pay very much, anyone have suggestions on a good sounding muffler?

does it only have to sound good? Are you getting a complete exhaust system too? I say save for the whole system. For your own sake don't rice it out.

i really don't want to pay for a full exhaust, i think with the right muffler it could sound decent and not ricey.

Getting a aftermarket muffler but not the downpipe is like whiping before you shit, its stupid and a waste of time.

The base model eclipse with a muffler, that will only make it a ricer car. Save your money for a full exhaust or don't buy anything at all.

yeah, 190 for a muffler is a rip off to, ive been looking at the Tsudo n1 style exhaust for my car, most of the people ive talked to said it sounds pretty good, deep but not much louder than stock with the silencer in it, but unbarably loud with it out, its good priced exhaust, but i duno what do u guys think?

Well, since he said his car was an "RS" that definitely means not a turbo. So 3" would basically just be retarded... you probably don't need anything over 2.25" exhaust piping.

whatabout a custom exhaust, pipes and an aftermarket muffler, ive heard from some people that they sound pretty good, but how much would that cost and would it be better to do?
