New Exhaust

My stock exhaust is rusty and is falling apart on me so i need a new exhaust. I have an idea of what i want to do but not sure if i can do it. I have a 94XLT 2.3L 4 banger. What i want to do is have regular piping going to a muffler, then have 4 inch piping come out of the other side of the muffler. But i also want it to come out dual exhaust from the muffler. I want to know if that is possible for me to do and if its worth to do. And what kind of muffler should i get. And if i cant do that what should I otherwise.

4" is overkill. I would say go 2.5" from the cat back into a muffler of your choice, then go 2.5" dual out with 3" tips

I just realized that it is a 4 banger. 2.25" pipe might be better. Just my opinion.

I just got the pipe from the cat to the muffler in 2.5 from summit for about 60.00. then get a muffler and then I am going to have a exhaust shop run the daul pipes out the back. I will have 220.00 in my daul sytem when done.

I would go with a Flowmaster 40 or super 40, they sound pretty good on a 4 cylinder.
