How will this muffler sound?

Allright guys. Yes I know it is a cheap @ss muffler and perhaps ricey. But I cant stand any longer to have no exhaust tone when I get on the pedal. So please, if your going to flame, just dont post. I would simply like to know how it would sound. I am looking for a nice deep tone and dont **YET** have the cash for a exhaust system, but as soon as I have enough, will purchase one. So ideas please, but save the flaming for another day. Thanks guys!

If it's just the muffler by itself it should sound alright

It'll sound like a vacume most likely. Don't Honda it out please.

Its about thirty bucks. No big chips. Im just trying to get some extremely cheap sound. I was thinking Borla at first but then was wondering why I would need to replace my ENTIRE exhaust.

Not hating here, just seems that the Focus is a different breed and yet, everyone wants to make them into a Civic.

^^ I know. I usually do. But posting something up like this is like wearing a "Kick Me" sign ya know? But a friend of mine bought a muffler from Autozone and put it on thier Celica GT and it sounds absolutley great. Not that this affected it but I figured something like this would produce a lower note since it gives more resonance space.

**edit** Easy there buddy. Ive been around here a while and I know for a fact Im not trying to make my baby rice. Far from it. Take a look at the pics, no rice here.
