I'd be worried about losing torque if you got rid of the muffler.. I had the si/do dumped setup on my truck when I had my 40 series, it sounded good imo, my current borla has a better higher RPM sound though and I noticed that I gained some torque back.

If you want it loud with a fairly deep tone, get glasspacks, they are loud, I love 'em!
