buying an exhaust kit

im looking to buy an exhaust kit (cat back) for my 04 edge with the 3.0. not looking to be obnoxious just a nice little growl. i would like to keep the drone down to a minimum in the cab but want to hear it when i open the windows. any suggestions? was also thinking a dual outlet muffler so it looks like duals in the back. video clips would be a plus. ill probably put sound deadening mat on the underside of the cab and spray everything with undercoating to help keep the noise down a bit. just gotta make sure i hear EVERY word the woman says or im in deep **** lol

Magnaflow x3, it should be perfect for you, and my woman loves the sound of mine as well.

I have a Magnaflow system on my 4.0L . Many just get a muffler and do a turn down after the axle. Much cheaper that way.

I bought the muffler from Summit, and went to a shop and had a custom catback done, and opened up the pipe to 2.5", cost about $210.00 for the catback and $75 for the muffler.
If I would have just had them weld in the new muffler it would have been $75 for that. but either way its alot cheaper to have a shop do it, than buy a kit.
