My friend and I are doing custom 2.5" piping on my 1999 Audi A4 1.8T and I want to know what muffler to use with it? Obviously it has to have 2.5" inlet and preferably dual outlets no bigger than 2.5". I am open to use a muffler with/without tips already on it, but want to find something that will not sound like a Honda, but will have a nice low sound. Brand and model # would be helpful as well so I know exactly what will work in my application. TIA.

I have looked into Borla, Magnaflow, Flowmaster, Remus, Supersprint, GHI, etc... But all I seem to find are entire catback or turboback kits that do not specify what muffler they use with it. I think I have finally decided to go with a pre-fabricated muffler with the tips and everything already on it so I don't have to make my own. I see one on eBay that is not a name brand, but is a straight through muffler with DTM style tips and I can get it for less than $80 shipped. Since I am using 2.5" piping and since it is a turbo, I do not anticipate getting much of a rice-like sound anyway. If it is a little ricey, I can always straight-pipe without a muffler until I find something that would be better. I'm not really on a budget here, but I would still like to spend less that $100 on a muffler since I just bought the car...
