Performance-Curve. com for cats, not advance auto or autozone. You can get a spun stainless cat for something like $60-70.

No stainless mufflers that I know of that are as quiet as stock, but my Flowmaster Super 50 Delta is merely rumbly (video with sound in my build thread). Their 60 is a little quieter but only available in stainless as part of a whole cat-back iirc. Their 70 would probably be really close to stock quiet.

Magnaflow's stainless mufflers is also tasteful sounding to most, but not stock quiet.

I have a Walker Cat and Walker Quiet flow muffler. After driving with it for a few months, when driving slow under load it has developed a loudness around 2000 RPM, not quite a drone but much louder then when cruising down the highway. On the highway I can hear my tires and engine more so then the exhaust, and when crawling around offroad it is super quiet. I would imagine it would be like stock factory with a little more growl when accelerating.

Turbo mufflers such as OEM, Dynomax, Walker use a fiberglass mat/packing to absorb sound. They tend to "break-in" over the first weeks-months as the fiberglass settles into place and even tiny bits of it get blown out.

This is a good thing to be aware of going in--these mufflers will sound differently at first than they eventually end-up.
