contour exhaust

hey everybody, i have a 1995 4-cylinder contour LX. everything is stock, resenator, pipes, muffler, etc. im thinking about buying this muffler off of ebay:

eBay Motors: OBX Dual DTM Tip Exhaust Muffler UNIVERSAL FIT ALL CARS (item 170019841559 end time Aug-23-06 17:59:04 PDT)

i was wondering if my car would sound good with just that muffler on it, while everything else is stock. and would i get better gas mileage with it?

thanks!
-Nate
