I only checked the first one, and it won't work. You need the NEWER F-body Camaro Firebird muffler with the inlet and one outlet on one end, and the other outlet on the other end. It'* a crossflow muffler. 2.5" in and out.

The resonators will just mellow out the tone, but won't quiet it down.

Hold on there. Zeke has an SE. Totally different exhaust setup. The SSE and SSEi are a unique application.

The SE/SLE cars can use a straight thru type muffler, the SSE/SSEi cannot.

It'll be alot more expensive. Our exhaust comes down the center of the chassis, and turns towards the Left rear tire, then enters the muffler on the driver'* side of the muffler. then one outlet comes out the same side to the driver'* side tip. The other outlet comes out the passenger side to the other tip.

Our SSE/SSEi mufflers are mounted transverse, just like an F-body Camaro/Firebird. You want mid-90'* or newer F body mufflers for the SSE/SSEi.

The other mufflers can be made to work, but you still have to mount sideways to make it fit, and custom pipe routing is difficult and expensive.

theres a pic of mine

i believe the only difference in the flowmaster mufflers for the 1980s and the 1990s muffers are input size

1980s = 2.5
1990s = 3
