Question mufflers

I own a 2000 4dr and was looking for a muffler to put on my car until I can afford a cat-back system. Does anyone have any suggestions since the stock muffler is so small?
thanks

go get yourself a magnaflow muffler less than 100 bucks and a new tip and get everything installed for 120 or more.

Which magnaflow muffler should I get? I know that they come in different sizes, but I also know that the tip is my choice. How much should a muffler/welding shop charge me to install the new muffler and tip?
thanks?
