Hi,
I want to replace the muffler with a Carlsson's as attached pictures.
Has anyone employed this type muffler, and how is the sound?:confused:
It is used parts and costs USD 800, is it worth?:rolleyes:
:bowdown:please kindly give me some suggestion.

not worth it, even if it were prestine.

I'd go with a magnaflow can and customize it with the tips of your choice.

I agree with Tech-Tune: 800 bucks for that sounds way too much.

Cheers.
Thanks for the suggestion. I would give it up.

Hi morriswu if I were you I'd look around for a very reputable muffler shop to build a custom installation and for a fraction of the cost and probably with better results either.
Pity you are not around the corner otherwise I would have had the right guy for you not too far from here.

Cheers.

Thanks msbarsi, even I am not around your corner, but I would be very happy if you can post some photos of the muflers.

Hi morriswu unfortunately I don't have any muffler pic because I never went to the custom route but as I sais, if you can find a reputable shop near you they can surely come out with something nice and suitable.

Cheers.

At that price it would be cheaper to buy a used MIG/SIG welder and make your own back box.

We should commission o_Anapodos... to fabricate custom exhaust systems :thumbsup:

That would be a good idea RedLiner and as I wrote in another thread, o_Anapodos... should get in the muffler business. He surely will have customers at least from the forum :D:thumbsup:.

Cheers.

Thanks RedLiner. I orginally thought the Carlsson muffler is a good stock...:eek:
Anyway, give it up, and try to search MIG/SIGs'.
