Proud of my 3rd gen f-body exhaust

I built a new exhaust system for my road race third gen and I'm quite proud of the results. I'm using dual 2.5" pipes following the factory routing going to a stamped 'Y' to a single 3". I then topped it off with a Flowmaster Pro-Seires muffler. I thought that muffler had an interesting design unlike anything else on the market, and i had the opportunity to get a free one so i jumped on it. Its actually quite a bit louder than I expected and that might be a problem with the rare ear condition i have, but man, it sounds great.
I took a video of it in action:

Here's what it looks like:

The muffler uses somewhat of an hourglass shaped mesh on the inside which is supposed to reflect the sound into itself and cancel it out.
Its supposed to work like this:
