I want a strange thing …

I’ve been looking for a while for low mileage GTO. In about a month I test drove may-be 5 cars – without exception they all had Flowmaster exhaust (got to be a popular mod ). I did not really like the sound of it, but finally I came across a deal that I could not pass by. So I got 04 GTO with just 27K miles – she is a beauty , but still a bit to laud. So I am thinking about actually swapping Flowmaster to OEM exhaust. Can somebody recommend a shop in Seattle/Tacoma area that will know how stock GTO exhaust looks like, look at my car and tell me what parts I need to get and then install them?
Also (I am a newbie here) may-be there is an easier way to alter sound of the exhaust?
Thanks

Stock exhaust is rediculously expensive to buy new. Best bet would be to find someone who wants to trade for loud exhaust. Just the mufflers are over $600.00 each for GMpartsdirect.

I was not even thinking about new. What do you think about this eBay item? "OEM Cmplete cat back stainless steel exhaust 2004 GTO" 225 shipped.
