As far as the sound, I recommend a BB turbo and an aeroturbine in place of the muffler to get you the closest.
Hey, I resemble that remark!
Actually, the day I needed to get my mods done, Tymar ran out of 4" exhaust. Dale gave me a great deal on the 5". I had already done the intake (which was a noticeable improvement over stock), and I did the downpipe and exhaust on the same day, so I'll never know if I gave up some bottom end. I do know that it'll spin the duals on dry pavement (open rearend), so that is plenty of torque for me. At Dyno Day, it did seem to have more peak HP (250) than comparable torque trucks (431), or lower torque for comparable HP.
BTW, the biggest change in audible whistle was the Tymar intake. The exhaust did not change the sound as much, but made it noticably "throatier", with a lower pitch.
On my street cars, I definitely like the quieter sleeper approach. 22 years ago (when there weren't nearly as many fast street cars), my 11 second street Vega had turbo mufflers and was quiter than most 15 second cars. That was before the flowmaster-type mufflers, so most people were running glasspacks.
