okay inside the muffler there are fins that spiral down and open up.....the directions said to face the muffler where the air flows over the fins...NOT throu the fins....it made a darn awful noise at 950 rpm like there was a wrench in there. lol so yesterdau i turn it around so the air was flowing into the holes....Was this a mistake??

It won't hurt anything, but it might clog the holes....which in turn will eventually sound like a straight pipe.

No it wouldn't, because its the sound that the muffler is muffling not the airflow. If you want to stop the airflow, then crimp your exhaust shut :D

The main difference should be volume. With the flow going over the holes it should be a tad louder, if you turn it around so the flow goes into the holes it should be a tad quieter. Other than that there shouldn't be much difference.
