Muffler Options

I have a 2.2 LS and I'm looking into swapping to an aftermarket muffler, but keeping all my other exhaust components stock. I'm not looking for performance since I'm aware that the only thing to do to make the LS perform good is adding a turbo or SC. All I'm looking for is a little bit louder and deeper tone. Does anyone have any suggestions?

you could get a weld on axle back ( basically just a muffler), or you can get a full cat back.

Spend a little more and get yourself an eBay catback. $150 should get you what you want.

My turbo checked over by BorgWarner and DP, charge pipes and intercooler wasn't even that much, $700 cash. Spent way more than that on the suspension though, I finally got the suspension to where I want it to be so now I can focus on adding the power.
