Different strokes for different folks.
Well....
I'm that "fool" who purchased the Ruf dual outlet muffler. As speednme1 aptly put, new, they are prohibitively expensive. Frankly, I don't know why some complain about an eight hundred muffler when some turn around and buy a B&B muffler for $1000+ that have proven to be somewhat restrictive flowing exhaust gases. Don't get me wrong; the B&B has a good exhaust note, but I have decided to "tone it down a bit" in my old age.
I purchased the muffler for two reasons. One, it is period correct for the car that I own. Secondly, it has a nice exhaust note. A friend of mine owns a Ruf 3.4 turbo and I was impressed with the exhaust note. Nice subtle rumble at idle and a very nice exhaust note under full load.

With all that said, I'll be selling the B&B headers, B&B single-in/single-out 930 exhaust system and Tial wastegate in the Spring once I get the stock heat exchangers refurbished and the engine dropped.
