Single Exit, stock muffler on a j30?

So this past few days I have been looking for ideas on what to do with my exhaust. My goal is to keep the sound as low as possible, yet make it sound deeper.

So far, I removed the two resonators, and now it sounds great.

The other thing that has always been in my mind is, what if I delete one of the mufflers, all together? When I look at the exhaust, it seems like the piping from the j-pipe goes all the way to the end and then it divides to doesn't look like there is much performance difference anyways.

My idea was either

running stock piping and 1 stock muffler, no resonators.

or running a bit bigger, say 3' piping and 1 stock muffler, no resonators.

As long as I am not loosing power, I do not care about any gains. If I do, thats a plus.

I was more thinking about running a stock muffler, no resonators, and bigger piping. Not trying to spend that much money on exhaust for now

performance upgrade + not willing to spend the $ = very low success. save up and get something legit. better in the long run.

Not do be a **** buddy , but if you look on my original post. I said I am not looking for power, just trying to run a single stock muffler with bigger piping. "As long as I don't loose power, I dont care about gains, if I do its a plus"

v6xjinbo, do you have a sound clip for that? Looking at the price, it sounds pretty reasonable. I might want to get one :P

If you are not worried about performance and want just a single outlet go to a muffler shop and have them make you a custom exhaust. All you need to do is run a pipe from your cat and weld on one of your factory mufflers, simple as that. Should only cost you around $200 depending on where you live.

That's what I thought too, but wont it affect the performance drastically? And , will i need to increase the diameter of the piping too or stock size should be fine? And do you think, running one less muffler will make it sound louder/may be ****ty?

Your issue is the stock muffler, running a bigger piping into that small inlet isn't going to do anything.
