Universal Muffler that won't hurt my ears, looking for advice.....

Best sounding universal muffler?

Ok, here is what I am looking for:

For my '87 Project RX-7 I am looking to go cheap and make some power too, while trying not to blow out anyone's ear drum. In the past I have heard some opened up Rotaries that sound horrible, almost to the point of being ear piercing. I don't want that. Donít want to be the guy with the really loud and annoying weed eater car.

I am about to rip out the stock exhaust and put in a custom one. Here is what it is going to be. Racing Beat 2-1 Header, Racing Beat Pre-Silencer, going to do between 2" - 2.5" pipe all the way back to the muffler. It will be a single muffler system to save $$$ and weight. I am looking to just get a universal straight through muffler. This car will be used for Open Track events and AutoX, no street driving required.

Here is the question, what Brand muffler is quiet yet provides good power? Should I look at ones with an optional silencer? Probably donít want to spend more than $200. Closer to $100 is better.

I run a magnaflow muffler, not sure the part number, I just let my exhaust guy choose the right application, it's loud without a helmet on, but very tolerable with one.

I think it sounds good, you can hear it in my vids.
