i agree with 99 on this... if its turbo you dont want any backpressure.. .. the turbo already provides this for you..... if you like it a little loud i run the napa 8"x3" race bullit... 60 bucks.... on dads turbo wagon we run a magnaflow and its a real nice mellow sound that flows great....just over 100

The hot setup is to go to a 3 in down and
keep it all 3 in with a straight thru muffler.


Keep to a straight thru muffler,no chambered type as it will kill
15-30 or more hp.

Summit sells inexpensive "turbo" mufflers the exact dimensions of the stock Pinto muffler (at least for my '77 wagon) with your choice of in- and out-tube size.
 
You can see the corner of mine in my 3" exhaust:
 

 
Running a Summit 3" cat also.

It's not bad....the Walbro is noiser at idle.  The turbo is louder when boosting.
 
It's hard to quantify  8)  I have perhaps 4 rolls of modern sound deadener installed.
