Muffler Repacking

I figure the Race Car Tech is the best place to ask this, as most people I speak to say they have to repack a muffler after 30 hours of track time, although they aren't rotary guys.

The Question

What kind of stainless steel wool should I use in the repacking of my originally fiberglassed muffler, and how much?

I'm intrested in this as my Krank exhaust has no packing at all and is too loud.

Okay, so just one pound should be good enough I assume, after looking in various places.

Its just the whole gradiny system is confusing, and coarse fine or medium? Wikipedia to the rescue, I hope.
