I had the stock muffler swapped for a glasspack. I don't know the exact type (although I do think it's made by Thrush), but it was an almost perfect bolt-in replacement for the stock L03 muffler. I left the cat and resonator in place (for now).
The glasspack has notches inside the pipe which are supposed to make the exhaust gas swirl and improve the sound :confused:

It sounds almost the same as before at idle, but gives a nice low rumble at part throttle, and a loud rumble at full throttle. It's almost like there's a guy with a really big drum in the trunk :D

The glasspack cost about $100, and about another $35 to install.

I'm happy with it, it's not too loud which is important since it's my daily driver.
I want to delete the cat but I'm afraid it'll get annoyingly loud. Does anyone have experience with this?

PS Thanks go to Maikel for giving me this idea. A lot cheaper than the custom exhaust I was about to buy!
