An end cap would mess up the sound some, but not totally.
You could also pinch the end of the 3/4 tubing where it enters into the larger tubing. Not too much though, the little beast still needs to breath well.

A simple baffle would also work too.
I plan on making my own exhaust for my HS engine, It will be 7/8 tubing (3/4 id) for the header going into a lawnmower muffler. I will weld some tubing, just barely large enough to allow the whole body of the muffler to slip inside of it, onto the muffler and that will act as a low tone resonator to give it a deeper sound.
