quiet, lower restrition muffler

I have a 2003 Yukon (5.3) that I'm fixing up...(got it used; lots of miles, but I love the car...). I want to replace the stock muffler with a stainless "mellow" sounding, lower restriction muffler...any idea? (dont' want loud)...

Maybe a Turbo muffler or a Hush Thrush. They're free flowing, and not very loud but still have a mellow tone. Not very expensive either.

Look on Summitracing.com for a Dynomax Turbo muff as BigEd eludes to, they aren't stainless but they will last a long time and cost about half of a stainless muff.........sound nice and mellow to. If you're running a single exhaust get the 2 1/2" size.

I believe the 2003 Yukon 5.3 comes stock with a 3 inch inlet outlet muffler. The replacement should also be a 3 inch in 3 inch out.
