you can just put in a muffler delete pipe. And any time you remove restriction in the exhaust you should lower egt and will not create an issue

If you want to lower EGTs get a full turbo back system. An aftermarket muffler will have an "on paper" effect on EGTs but really it will only be about 50-100* if that.

The stock muffler isn't the issue... its the dinky 3.5" stock piping! It's 100% pointless to spend money and waste time on the stock exhaust. I got my 5" turboback SHIPPED for $320 for crying out loud... thats the price of any muffler you will find.
