The Cherry Bomb shouldn't affect the emissions test as it's the CAT that does the work. I've only heard the C.B. on a V8 car so I would think it might give the PT a tin can sound that the ricers like. It's a completely straight thru design surrounded with glass pack.

A deeper sound would be a DynoMax or Flowmaster.

I had a Dynomax muffler on the '01 PT and liked the sound. If you have a turbo you want a free flow exhaust, though.

I don't care for glasspacks as a primary muffler. They can sound pretty good as a resonator with a high-flow muffler like a Magnaflow on an NA car.

I would only consider the Magnaflow as a primary muffler in the case of the turbo models, as Chrysler deemed the SRT4 with the same engine to be quiet enough without a muffler since the small turbo did sufficient sound suppression by itself.

My Heart Throb exhaust uses resonators and it's not loud at all. They're even reversed (hooks don't grab airflow). It has a resonator just after the cat, then one in each tip. I assume they're glasspacks, but not totally sure.

If you keep the cat in I don't think it will be too loud, I ran with open cat and it was much quieter than I thought it would be. Find the longest resonator in the size you need though, the longer the resonator, the quieter it will be, and I don't think it hurts airflow much with added length. My exhaust sounds okay, bit deeper, bit louder, not too ricerish. That's all based on my opinion though. It's a four banger, still sounds like a four banger. Wish it had another four cylinders to sound the way Chrysler made the car look.
