Whats the cheapest way to quiet an exhaust?

I have a 98 Mustang with dual exhaust. I got a ticket for modified exhaust (CVC27151). Apparently it's too loud. I got it tested at 99 dba, the california state limit is 95dba. So whats the cheapest way to get the sound level down?
I bought the car as is, I have no idea exactly how the exhaust was modified (its obviously aftermarket though). I am a college student with a part time job. Maybe can spare $200 to fix this. Any suggestions?
Thanks!

Try swapping somebody out-of-state for a factory exhaust. If the one you have is nice enough, they may come out and get it. Otherwise you'll have to bargain shop it for a cheap non-performance exhaust. Time to bust out the local directory and start calling muffler shops!

Get a muffler and put it on there...the person before you probably removed the muffler... I know I did it on my mustang.

You might need to get a resonator installed, or mufflers.
