sounds like a glasspack is what you need.
thats EXACTLY what brings the boxer sound back and takes away all the annoying-ness of the stright pipe sounds.

I have 2 1/2" exhaust from the turbo, high flow catalytic converter, and a Flowmaster on my car and it doesn't sound like a Toyota pick-up.
Will heard it at an autocross in Radford, Va. maybe he has some insight.

with the TWE's...the exhaust flows PROPERLY...and with a larger diameter...its jsut plain LOUD and with the tuned lenght header, the boxer sound goes away if there isnt anything to take away the high pitched junk out of the sound.

If I installed a glasspack, it would most likely have to sit in front of the rear axle, right?
Or you could have it mounted where the #2 stock catalytic converter would go. If I ever decide to go catless and get a test pipe, or straight pipe if you will, then I will replace it with another resonator(large internal dia. glasspack) like the one that is already on the car.

Because there it will catch all the resonating high pitch stuff and it will sound great.

what i find to be ideal is the glass pack at the downpipe flange and stright pipe out the back. the glass pack will give a deep mellow sound and the pope back will take the sound out from under the car, and reduce the pulsing sounds

What sounds good it definately a subjective proposition.
