sorry again guys but id rather not make another mistake - ok im taking off the rear muffler on thursday and the guy said he normally puts a hotdog on - is it worth the hotog to cut out the droning or will the note still not be as deep?? otherwise im just going to go the straight through pipe from the middle muffler

thanx for your help guys with this situation

I got straight through and its a bit to loud IMO. I liked it to begin with but after a while you get over it and it just gets annoying.

Personal preference though

i got a straight through pipe, drones a bit, but you get used to it and don't notice. Unless you hate droning. You should go for a ride with someone with a droning car and see what you think.
My two cents
