Better muffler?

My '71 250/8 needs a new muffler. I believe in allowing an engine to breathe, is there a performance option? A good source for either option?

A custom-exhaust-shop would probably give you a better answer.

I'm sure there are ok custom mufflers to put at the rear. Maybee even dual mufflers side by side. The original rear muffler is BIG, so there should be plenty of room for a custom one..

Even though I never would do such a thing.. The Mercedesengineers are more qualified than any of us. So I doubt you can find a muffler wich gives the car more free flow, without getting more noise.
Allthough mufflers are more advanced today, than in 1970 ..
