OK, I guess I have left you hanging long enough...but I have a reason...I bowl leagues on Thursday nights.
I went with a Magnaflow single in / dual out muffler, new 2.5" tailpipes and 12" double walled brushed aluminum tips. Here's some more pics...

I'll try and get a vid with sound soon.
Next up...well, you'll see that tomorrow...
