There's only two ways to do your exhaust in my opinion, you buy a kit, be it muffler or whole system, or you build your own from scratch. Big B is right about cut outs and drilling being just that.
Yes, I straight piped my exhaust, but I built the pipes, measuring the exact same length and diameter as a set of holeshot mufflers on my father in laws strom. Then tuned it with my power commander for proper performance.
Point of he story is you have to design an exhaust to fit and sound to your liking, you can't just cut up the stocker and expect miracles. Of course it sounds bad..... It has a hole in it. If you honestly don't care if it sounds ok and you just want it louder then go ahead and all the power to you, just don't expect it to sound like you want it to.
If you have any welding experience then you could easily design your own system WITH a glass pack like on many aftermarket exhaust systems, you could do it yourself for less than 50$. Pm me and I'll make you a blueprint of a system that will look and sound good for cheap
Or...... Pm me with your model and year and I could give you an estimate on a set delivered to you. Bonus if its a 1000 I can test it and send you a video clip before you get it. Only a deposit needed for me to make a set.
