Question Time for a Muffler

So I have a magnaflow muffler installed on my legend by the previous owner. It sounds nice. My friend has a subaru wrx sti with a 3in pipe going from the engine to the muffler and the 3in tip on the end. That sounds really nice. Im not looking to redo my entire exhaust but I want to change the muffler. I like loud but powerful sounding. Not like those 6in cans that sound like a little 2stroke dirtbike on civics. And by doing it I dont want to fall into a stereo type. haha. Im attaching a link and I want to know if this is stupid and I woundnt be able to achieve a good/powerful/"meaty"(if that makes sense, haha) sound by only changing the muffler.

I like the look of the rainbow tip. Thanks in advance for the advice.

do not get that.

search "acura legend exhaust" on youtube so that you can have a better idea of not only what an exhaust will look like, but more importantly what it will sound like.

The one in the link looks cheap. I didn't want that specific one. I will go to a car shop to buy one if/when I decide to do it.

well it's your car but...that style of muffler generally yields a pretty generic "ricey" sound. I'm willing to bet that if you get it, you'll soon be wishing you had kept your current magnaflow.

Yeah I was just listening on YouTube. I'm not getting that style. What are other good brands?

Maganflow, Remus and stromung
Get headers and you will add to the "powerful" sound you want.

I'm sticking with my muffler. I was thinking about headers but I was reading about how headers can sometimes make cars not pass emissions. Is this true? And how hard would that be to do?

You can get a borla muffler, I've had one on my couple since the late 90's and it not only sounds good but i still rock it. Oh and did I mention that it sound freaking awesome? just my $.02
