I've been saying this all along. IMO the Y pipe needs to be moved back. It's not going to be easy to find the right location. If you have a welder at your house. Who cares what it looks like start cutting/welding to find the proper placement. Best muffler is no muffler the best cat is no cat. It will always be this way imo. No reso's nothing pipe it from the headers back without any garbage in between. If performance is number one, sound shouldn't even be considered. Hope I made sense here
