Thanks glad you like 'em.

Negative, those are same muffler under different listings.

I first deleted 2nd Cats & MB Resonator (retaining stock muffler tho) = nicer sound but still too quiet.

Then replaced factory muffler with this one, found it sounded great but too much hiway drone.

Had shop add factory Resonator back behind new muffler (same location as before) and, voila, sound is now perfect - throaty V-8 note at idle & WOT, subtle but audible at cruise.

Yes I will post YouTube of layout & sound test.

There are alternatives to this scheme that I discovered along the way.

Happy to share those too.

Cheers - David
