Another muffler question

Does anyone have any experience running muffled megaphones on a street car. Looking at the ones gt-racing offers. Have talked to Joel and he says they run about 92db at wide open throttle. My car is a stripped down lightweight. Motor is 82 3.0 Weber 40 mm carbs,9.8.1 with webcam 464/465, with 1 5/8 headers.Thinking this would be a good combination that would let it breathe without compromising h.p. At lower rpms. Below is a pic of the exhaust.

If you buy it please post a sound clip/video. Should sound great, but may be too loud.

Loud is one thing - if it drones it can be unbearable.

Some wiseacre once replied, "It sounds like you stuck your head in a bucket, then touched your girlfriends vibrator to the bucket".
