Muffler and stacks?

Anyone ever installed an mbrp muffler with a stack kit? I have a 2006 CC and the muffler is 6" O.D. by 30" long. I will have to measure to see if I have the room to make it fit. I was wondering if anyone has ever done it before. What will it sound like?

When i ran my dual 7" stacks i put a muffler on it to just see what it would sound like, it was a waste of time it sounded like a stock truck. So i took it back out. I dont know if you want to go that quiet.

different mufflers will perform differently. There is definitely space to put one under there.

Get a short Flow through muffler if you guys want some kind of a decrease in sound.

I Have the cat and muffler delete pipes. I did not like how messy the exhaust sound was so I go a tip that is a double layer with wrapping, that helped slightly with sound. It still has the straight pipe sound.

A short straight through muffler will quiet it down some and still leave some of the turbo whistle but that will be diminished as well. There is nothing I know of that will quiet one and not the other.
