run a single straight through muffler.... thats it, will sound great.

Doesnt matter if its offset or inline, essesntially it will always sound like a Ford 6.

hotdogs are just pretty much pipes with baffle-ing around them... dont do much to muffle the sound..
just adds a crispier raspy note i found ... seems to eliminate a bit of drone

im running 3" with just 2 hotdogs ... and its not too loud :)

Mates EF runs no muffler, just a single hotdog at the rear. Its loud.... and it sounds like a 2stroke. No note at all. My system is one muffler, no res, and we both agree mine sounds 50 times better, though it is quieter.

I too am running just one muffler, but i was wanting a little bit more noise. Would it be best to take out the muffler? or is that somewhat illegal???

Cheers

i had a hotdog muffler under my rear bumper for ages... and can definatly vouch for the raspy note... especialy on over run in gear decelerating from hi rpm... 8-)

My EBII has one muffler, it has a very nice note and yet thankfully i didn't notice it when i was driving it. It sounds exactly the same as an s-pack EBII i listened to recently, which makes me wonder if one muffler is standard.

Peeking inside a "supercat" muffler the other day it seems a variance on the hotdog. It had a straight through central pipe which was fluted (angled holes all along).

i honestly don't know what sort of redback muffler they put on it coz its big and the inlet and outlets are opposite if you get what i mean i dont know if its straight through or not i'm thinking about getting a lukey muffler to replace it but never used lukey before and don't know what one sounds the best on the I6

Lukey sound awesome and flow very well. I have an older type Lukey under my car, which means its quieter than the straight thru types, but it has a very nice note. Ive been told that the newer mufflers are deeper and louder... exactly what you want.
