Icon6 any ideas on this setup?

hi my cat was gutted last summer because it was clogged, it also had stress cracks down the shell from it overheating. The cracks were welded and a thrush turbo muffler and a side-pipe in front of the rear passenger tire were added. Fast-forward to a week ago, the side-pipe and the muffler straps let loose,(my step-dad put it all together when I was out getting parts) and the muffler got wrapped around the drive shaft. When that happened it bent the cat all to hell. The empty cat has been removed and my plan is to put my old glasspack in its place,run a piece of 2-1/4 to a y-pipe and then down to 1-7/8 duals out the back. I also have a few more ideas on a poll.

My vote is for the duals. Stack sounded good though.

The people have spoken.... Duals it is!! when I get my paycheck the setup will be done and while I have it in a heated garage I will also replace the timing belt with 160k on it and the plugs with 70k
