If you want to run out the tails Id try no mufflers. I think it cost me like $75 at an exhaust shop to hook the midpipe to the tails. Sounded awesome and itll perform the best if you arent running open DP.

Ya I hear ya. I didnt like it because I could smell the exhaust and it was a little too loud.

My car has 2.5" Dynamax mufflers and it's way too quiet really. Do you have the 2.5" or 3" Bassani? I'm actually thinking about getting the 3" Bassani for pipe size and to hopefully make it so I can hear it...

I'd go with some nice resonators only and avoid mufflers on a turbo car.

I have a custom 3" system fed by cg fab forward facing headers. I jet hot coated the whole system to keep engine/underbody temp low. The only thing I have from the headers to the tailpipes are Vibrant straight through resonators. It was a little raspy straight piped and previous combos were way to quiet with mufflers.

I do recommend get e-cutouts. Or electric gates basically. Pick up extra power/torque and sound when you want to like at the track or at a car show/fun cruise with friends, but much quieter when closed or you don't want to smell like gas.

I have a few vids on this YouTube channel of the sound through a custom 3" system just with vibrant resonators.
