G8 V6 Muffler Delete?

How much would it be? Ive been doing some research and the most general figure Ive been getting is about 140-200 bucks. No its not the best option, but with a budget like mine its all I can afford.

When I put my Solo axle-backs on my Base Wanted to see what it sounded like. Not very good and the DRONE would have been major nasty bad. Just keep chjecking the for sale section for a set .There has been many before you that have tried a lot of diffirent things, so save yourself some time and go by what others before you tryed .

V6 engines of any sort need the biggest, quietest muffler possible. It would just sound horrible with anything less.
