Search this section. There are several threads detailing muffler choices for turbo set ups. I use dyno max welded ultra flows. They are very quite.

I use Bassani race series mufflers...straight thru design...Nice tone at idle...wicked sounding when in Boost....

I would think a straight pipe or any straight through muffler would be the best option

X2. Most people have seen as much as a 25-40hp increase from switching from a chambered muffler to a straight through muffler. Remember turbos hate backpressure.

Get lots of compliments on my magnapacks. I open the cutout a little into the video and you can hear the difference that they make. Yes, they are straight through.

I switched from flowmasters backto the magnaflows my car came with and it was a big enough gain to make my clutch slip. No kidding it blew my mind.

I'm not a magazine racer, my car is actually fast.
I also have a Honda civic but, mine has a bigger, uglier driver.
