My current setup consists of OBX EL headers (catless) with 2.5" piping going through a 24" magnaflow resonator ending with an STi muffler. I like the deep and fairly quiet tone, but it's still pretty raspy. I have read that this is likely due to the STi muffler I am using. I just want the rasp gone, cuz it makes my car sound like poop.

My question to ya'll:

Would I get the results I am looking for (maintaining deep tone and quietness) if I replaced the STi muffler with another big resonator (no muffler), or is there simply another muffler I ought to put on there?

If youre looking to stay on the quieter side of things.. the bola hush is a fantastic replacement for the STi axleback. All of the tone, none of the rasp

Put the magnaflow oval muffler on it, not overly loud but still noticable. That's my setup, 2.5" custom catback with magnaflow res and muffler combo. I kept factory cats so I don't really know if just a better muffler will eliminate the rasp, but I know it'll sound better IMO than the STI muffler.
