Default Good Muffler?

So, just got a ticket for straight pipe. I was wondering what you guys have found out there for mufflers that sound nice and is still decently loud, for under 100 dollars preferably. Thanks yall!

Most of the Thrush, Flowmasters, and Magnaflows are less than 100. They all sound good to me. I'm not sure what you think of any of them.

Flowmasters don't last. In our northern climes, they rust-out in about two years. I tried them twice. Wont do it again.

I went 289k miles on my 95. And the factory muffler lasted 190k. The inlet, and tail pipe were still original, and in good shape. If flowmaster cant build a muffler that can last 2 years ( without coating) I don't want it.
