Default Performance muffler with OE sound

I'm looking to replace my rusted out Flowmaster (40 series) on my 89 Civic
DX. Is there such a thing as OE sound (quiet!) in performance mufflers?
Specifically, I'd like to minimize the noise inside the car (I don't really
care what it sounds like on the outside, and if it weren't so darn loud
inside the car now, I'd be happy with my current mufflerless system).
Thanks in advance.

only way to have oe sound is to have a highly constrictive muffler, its a
trade off

Well, not exactly. You can fitt resonators (little straight through
mufflers) in any long pipe sections that will minimise the noise in the car
and also outside. If you only replace the OE muffler with a "performance"
unit, of course its going to be loud.

Most exhaust shops should be able to come up with something that works if
they are willing to be a bit creative. Some only want to fit std parts, so
ask around.

Thanks for the info. I'm currently starting my own biz. and cash flow is
restricted. From what I can tell, I can expect to pay about $60 for a
generic replacement muffler with OE characteristics. I'm definitely fond of
the increased power from my Flowmaster/Nomuffler setup and I certainly don't
want to cut into any gas mileage improvements. Can I get a shop to work
with me on resonators/mufflers with my shoestring budget or am I wasting
their time? Thanks again.

there are mufflers out there that are not 'that' loud, a turbo muffler is
usually the way to go, such as summit racings, its like 15 usd and it isnt
that loud at all, but it is very free flowing

Were you thinking of the WLK-17778 listed here,
http://store.summitracing.com/? That's a Dynomax Super Turbo muffler. Did
you have some idea of where I might find this for about 15 usd (that's $15
U.S. Dollars right?) Thanks.
