Texas Trans Am mufflers. Nothing I have heard sounds as sweet as these on a 2nd gen. I have a club member that has them on his after he heard mine.

What cam, compression and exhaust pipe diameter, please? Very nice sound and could you post what they look like with a pic? Mike

Lets see if I can somewhat answer that...CompCam XE274 cam, compression?, 2.5" exhaust.  Thats what I remember anyways.

Right now my car has longtubes, true duals 2.5 inch, IMCO mufflers (never heard of them before) and the splitter tips. I'm just not happy with the sound. What would be a good sounding pair of mufflers I could swap mine out for. I'm not gonna be running cats and I don't want it to be terribly loud just a good sound. Thanks

i think IMCO is the generic brand that comes with the summit/jegs kits.
