Muffler advise

Howdy y'all.
It's been hot here, had the starter go on the car and didn't feel like doing it so I took it to a shop. While it was in I told him I'm sick of screwing around, I was going to take the turbo off, get the gaskets in there that should be in there, and check for any exhaust leaks at the manifold but wanted him to do it while he has the car. And man am I glad I did. I'll spare you the story. Suffice it to say it is done. I FINALLY have a car with no exhaust leaks.
So now I know it's just my exhaust that sounds like crap. It's loud, and there's just nothing I like about it. I'd like a much quieter sound.
I'm running the 3-in single setup from stinger and I got the dynaflow muffler through them.
Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations for a different muffler.
Edit: If it sounds good, a little loud is fine. If it doesn't sound good, I'd rather have quiet.i find the noise droning and obnoxious.

Rob,
I first had Dynomax Ultraflows on my Stinger 2.5" dual set up on my 88, straight downpipe. I also found these mufflers too loud for my taste especially on a classy car like a Turbo Coupe, here's what I did. Replaced the Dynomax mufflers with dual 2.5" Hooker MaxFLows and added a 3" ID 6" long race bullet where the cat would be, so now I have three mufflers and the car has a nice mellow sound to it, much better than the Dynomax mufflers. From the research I did on mufflers, the Hookers actually flow better and quieter then most other mufflers, but then you are running a single 3" so I think adding either a race bullet or some other small diameter round muffler in line will tone it down.

Thanks Kuch, exactly the kind of advise I'm looking for. Other than trial and error which isn't really an option, getting advice from fellow owners is about the only other thing I can think of
