If you find one that looks clean on the inside it may be worth it, But I wouldn't. A new muffler is like $80 plus install and usually comes with a warranty...

we have a good one around here and can find most of everything we want. The only thing I am lacking is my rear SSE passenger tail light. Those are hard to find.

You can get a lot of good shyte from the junkyard, I've got hundreds of dollars (assuming if brand new) worth of fully functioning spare parts for a song at the junkyard. Incuding air suspension stuff - you know how expensive that stuff is.

I got a Camaro muffler (ProFlo) for $45 brand new! If you look on Ebay tips are pretty cheap and NAPA has some good stainless for cheap! Junkyards are good for parts but I wouldn't go for exhaust parts!
