If you remove the cat a resonator will make it so it is not raspy sounding. If you can get away with it I suggest a 2.25 inch exhaust with no cat, a muffler, and a resonator. It will get rid of the "gay" sound as you put it

Leave the cat dude...I mean, it keeps things clean (and legal) and serves a purpose. Run 2.25" piping, a high flow cat, a good quality resonator and muffler and you'll be golden. I wouldn't run without a resonator or a cat.

***When I say high flow cat, I mean like a Carsound cat or something like that, NOT a test pipe. Test pipes are very pointless. You will polute the air and will not pass inspection.

no resonator will sound awful and it will be loud as hell in your car too... leave the resonator! and it depends on which muffler you get for the stock piping. some will sound deep and cool, some will sound ricey. i think twin loop mufflers are popular and magnaflow mufflers are good too.

I paid a little over 100 for my custom 2.25 piping and installation. Of course I supplied the cat, the muffler, and a resonator. And the shop I go to is really cheap so I'm not sure what you can expect. To just weld a new muffler on it's not gonna be very much. Once again the shop I go to is cheap and I only got charged 30 bucks when I had a muffler welded on one time, but it won't be that much.

i replaced the resonator on a 67 cougar with a straight pipe years ago and it was only just a little louder. something noticeable at first, but after a short time of getting use to it - was to my liking. and that was on a 289 v 8.
