Gotcha. I'm thinking his isn't the 80 though. Went back and looked, it looks like his inlet is on the center. So he's got a standard single in dual out, with dual pipes next to each other to the back. I could be wrong though, and from what he said that shop does sound pretty incompetent.

In that case it's definitely not an 80. I'd be real curious to hear what it'd sound like with straight pipe from the cat to the muffler.

I wonder if it would sound better. Ughhh. I've always disliked picking exhaust. You never know what it's really going to sound like. How's your interior sound?

An 80 would be a lot bigger too. The single in dual out on same side is what they use to do dual exhaust on pick-ups also the 88 Camaro had dual tips on passenger side like this one might be a 50 or 40 they used a 40 on my Ram. Sounds good though.

Some one removed the first resonator and sounded like the lunch box delete with stock rear muffler might try removing the second one that is after the bind looks like a glass pack that might give you the loudness and tone your looking for. Basically its like you put a glass pack in place of the regular muffler like they us to do years ago you will have that over resonated sound because the 2 inch pipe keeps exhaust velocity high and sound wave moving fast but try the second one first it might turn out to be what you want if not you could put it back or go 2.25 or 2.5 back to muffler. Good luck keep us updated.

There is a "straight" piped MK3. Its black and on YouTube . Sounds good at idle but not so great beyond that.

Sounds good on the inside, definitely loud though.

I pulled up the floor in my hatch today. The only thing under the floor board is Styrofoam and the spare then metal. I think I'm gonna lay some insulation down.
