Best Performance Exhaust set up?

So right now I have a flowmaster super 40 dumped. I decided I want to upgrade to an exhaust system that will help give me more pwer and better mpg vs. a loud sound. What is the best set up(muffler, pipe size, ect..) in order to increase mpg and horsepower the most?

I run a Gibson cat-back. It is pretty quiet until you hit about 3,000 rpm's or higher. I like it, no drone on the highway sounds just right.

If you want a good "performance" muffler, go with a Magnaflow, Borla, basically any straight through design muffler is going to perform better than a chambered muffler.

I've got the Gibson Extreme Dual exhaust and I really like it. There's no drone to it at all and it really has a nice growl to it when you get on the gas. I noticed a 2-3mpg increase as well as a decent gain in the low rpm's.

Single - 2.5"

Dual - 2.25"

I would go single lightning style or dumped after the axle.

Depends.

I used to have dual 2.25inch pipes going out the back, I now have dual 2.00 inch pipes. Some people like those 4inch pipes with chrome tips..

Its all different depending on which muffler you use, how well your scavenging happens and how well your ' flow ' of air into and out of your exhaust is.
