first thing you need to do with questions like this is search...you'll find all the answers to your questions.

what KIND of muffler is up to you...its a preference thing. try ebay or www.southwestautoworks.com for some options.
a muffler will make your exhaust louder...an intake will pretty much make the engine louder..both a warm and cold air intake give off a nice growl at full throttle.

Doesn't the loudness of the muffler kinda depend on the tranny too?
well, no not really. If you have a 5 speed, you can run it up to the higher rpms easier and that will give the higher pitched droning sound out of a good muffler, but the sound is never a direct function of the transmission.
