Ok, went back to the exhaust shop to fit a hotdog instead of rear muffler, now at the end, he said he didn't want to put in a hotdog as it would have sounded like s**t, and instead put in a different muffler at an extra cost (however didn't charge me extra cause I've had alot of exhaust work done with them). Does any1 know what it is, I looked at it later and its like a giant black cylinder. Well anywho, it sounds bloody awesome now, much better than b4. Kinda like a skyline only a deeper note. :)

Nah, a hotdog's different... Your get one or the other.. A hotdog looks kinda like a frankfurt on the exhaust pipe, hence the name... Resonators are generally not as loud as hot dogs, but AFAIK they are prone to drone...

?? doesn't matter what it looks like, its under the car out of sight. I think brake boosters look gay but they are out of sight!! If I only had 1 muffler, then I'd get EPA'ed in a second.

yeh the 2.5" systems as soon as one off the resonator/mufflers are removed and straight thru pipe put in its place your over the legal exhaust noise threshold.
