Need exhaust help

My old bronco is in need of some serious exhaust mods. First, I had a custom milled exhaust ring made from aluminum so that I can run my exhaust out the side of the fender just in front of the rear tire. it currently exits near there, but just below the body and has been smashed a few times. Plus the muffler is just impailed on the collector and is not clamped on. I do need to make this section removeable in case I have tranny work. I am leaving the pipe alone that comes down from the headers and then collects into one. From there I want to put a better muffler (something good priced, but has a good V8 rumble), then turn 90 in the horizontal, go between the frame and the body and then straight out of the body thru the ring. I will have to cut the hole in the body. Any suggestions on a nice sounding muffler? Nothing real loud just a nice rumble. As it stands now at idle, all you hear is the hiss of the EFI.

Here is how it sets now:


I would prefer to do this with some local help because it would be fun, but I am also open to good exhaust shops that don't rake you over the coals. Thanks!

J.D.

As for a muffler, I imagine you couldn't go wrong with a Flowmaster 40 or 50 series.

This is the guy who built what I drew and installed on his bronco. Actually it was a buddy of his who had the CNC. His looks real nice on there and he's bugging me to get mine done...
