i see that you want a pace setter, but that would be the worst decision you ever made. i too have a 96 sentra gxe, and i went with a high performance cat from summit racing, a 24" glasspack, and finished it off with a flowmaster super 40 muffler. i know that super 40 mufflers are for V8''s, but you have to see and hear the car to know why i chose that muffler. you will not be dissapointed. plus i dont get too much unwanted attention , because it looks like a stock exhaust.
