My go-to muffler has always been the various brands of "Corvair Turbo" muffler. the one I've been using lately is a Summit branded unit. they have a nice mellow rumble. quiet…., but not silent

Thank you....
I checked the Satin muffle and sounds like it is a good choice...!
North star do you have any video from Corvair Turbo on net?!
I couldn't find any good video...

Ditto! I've used the Summit brand turbo mufflers and love the sound. I put Flowmaster 40's on my latest project because a friend sold them to me very cheap, but they're way too loud behind my 464 BBC engine. I'll take them off and install the Summit turbos this winter.

I also love turbo mufflers. I used the Thrush turbo's, they are cheap. My car has a nice mellow sound but gets louder at full throttle.

A guy told me that some times single exhaust produce more torque...!!
Is he right? and how about catalyst converter,is it a good idea to get rid of it,we don't have emission controls here...honestly we have but not so important.
Is a good idea to change the muffler only on my single for better sound?

Not only can a single exhaust sometimes have more low end torque, but going to a dual, or to too large a dual will easily reduce back pressure and lose torque. But that's usually when you only do an exhaust change and no other changes to go along with that change.
Really should check with your state testing office prior to removing the cat. Hate to see you remove it, and then get dinged at the next test for not having it. I've had friends who got caught and it didn't turn out well.
Changing just the muffler to a better sounding, free flowing muffler will probably make a slight performance increase, and get your car the sound you prefer.

you can just swap to a larger pipe and muffler single set up and get everything you want.

As i read your comments here i think that making dual exhaust for a stock Chevy 350 which produce around 150hp is not necessary so i can improve the sound by changing stock muffler,but which muffle you suggest for that,turbo muffler...i need one with two valves.

I think you mean two chambers, not valves. A dual chamber will be a bit quieter usually vs. a straight thru design. All turbo mufflers use a dual chamber, and come in various sizes and lengths. You'll have to figure out which one fits best, or have your muffler shop pick one and install it.

I've always been happy with the sound of Walker Turbo Mufflers from the auto parts store; they are less expensive that the "hotrod" version. And I always use a crossover or "H" pipe. They have a nice, throaty rumble and are no too loud.
