With a 2.3 no muffler will make it sound to loud

I would suggest a flowmaster or magnaflow

the Thrushes will sound a little louder than stock but nothing extremely annoying.

i'm running a version of them on my 2.3L and it sounds more throaty but without the ricey burp

and magnaflow and flowmaster generally sound good on all cars and ive heard their quality and value for what you pay for them is usually pretty good
