New exhaust for EF

The muffler on my EF is starting to get a small hole in it, and I figure I might as well put a cat back system on it. My question is whats the best combination for an Auto 4.0i which is completely stock.
I want it to be quiet on idle and day to day cruising, but a bit of a roar when i nail it. What size pipes ( 2.25 - 2.5 etc ) and what size/number of resonators etc etc

Cheers guys

Re: New exhaust for EF

i have a 2 1/2 with one resonator before the diff. its got a nice idle note, and is sweet when i am up it.

I got it from Lee's Exhaust's at Moss St at slacks creek.
