You told us not to practice "complete fascism". That is, in fact, calling us fascists. I don't know who may have deleted your post, nor do I know what it said.

heres my two cents...

the Fbody muffler IS a direct replacment, and CAN be installed with the outlets toward the rear of the car (as seen in the pic on my car)

ANd if im not misstaken, Andrew (harofreak00) only installed his muffler like that to accomidate how long his Tips were

on a side note I prefure MagnaFlow over anything else ( i got quite a few complements at NEBF on how mine sounded )

Pete, notice how far back the muffler is sitting and how its almost touching the heat shield

Thats not a direct fit. a direct fit will sit almost inf the same spot as Stock.

i can buy a "OEM" SSE/SSEi muffler and it will sit int he center of the heat shield.



*edit*

This is one form Advance Auto. Looks out the one side the inlet and the Outlet are right next to each other, thats what makes it fit nicely.

the F-body'* of the inlet and outlet far apart witch can make it tuff to get it int he right spot under the car. Witch is why i had to do mine the way i did. cuz it would not fit.

Ryan, you might want to crawl under a SSEi some time... the STOCK muffler is that close (give or take HALF AN INCH) the only differance is it doesnt have all that EXTRA muffer on the front part, which makes it appear to not fit as well. (cut off the front half of a stock muffer, where three are no inlets ot outlets and it will looke off centered like mine

Badnit, we've been using F-body mufflers for 5 years here with no install problems, weird mounting, or freaky angles. The hang perfectly and don't interfere with anything. Not even my reciever hitch, which the outlets have to pass through.

Your install is a bit questionable to say the least. Yours obviously is NOT a direct replacement considering the funky mounting to make it work.

Our traditional OEM style mounting of the F-body mufflers on hundreds of cars here in 5 years speaks for itself. Your OPINION may dictate otherwise, but our experience trumps you.

im not saying you cant make it work, im saying its not a direct replacement

i got a "F-body" Muffler, to make it fit like Peters and yours and other i would have had to push the whole exhaust forward and put stress on it.

but then again ever car is a bit diffrent so my exhaust may have been replaced and they pipe from the CAT back might be just a bit longer in witch i could not fit the F-Body.

But hey, i will look at yours Pete at ONBF and compare it to mine and see what i can do to make mine fit better.

Bandit, there is NO STRESS on our exhaust. Get over it. There'* hundreds of people here that have used them for DIRECT REPLACEMENTS. They fit correctly, hang where they should, and cause no problems. And we all mount them FLAT like they're supposed to.

You are in the major minority here with your goofy mounting. If you like it, fine. But that doesn't mean it'* right, and it certainly isn't as good of a fit as the direct replacement F-body mufflers we've been using here for YEARS.

Telling someone here that the F-body isn't a direct replacement is like telling someone a 15x6" wheel isn't a direct replacement, even though it has the correct pattern and offset.

Bandit,
In this pic, the inlet is directly across from the single outlet:




yet in installed pic (from Haro?) , thatí* not the same 'inlet' being used:

Is that NOT an F-body muffler being used or was it installed wrong or is the camero diagram wrong?

Thanks for helping clear up my confusion.LOL
