i cant give a definite IT WILL FIT, but im sure itd be pretty close...and im sure you can find a Magnaflow cheaper somewhere else...in fact i know of a site...and im in no way affiliated with this site i swear...its just a good site with good prices, cause last time i gave this link to someone my post mysteriously vanished, so if thats the case again someone please let me know why it was deleted...but anyway here http://www.fle-online.com/ the universal fit Magnaflows in the size you were talking about are about 30 bucks cheaper, and free shipping, if and when i order mine itll be from that site.

Any muffler you choose will need some degree of custom fabrication to install. Count on having new tailpipes installed, perhaps retaining your OEM tips.

Cheers,

You need a crossflow muffler, for an F body, either camaro or firebird. That muffler is only 5x8? Or is that the cross section? You need something setup like this..




If everyone can please read the sticky'* and threads in the performance area it would help us out a lot. Once we started that thread, everyone just makes posts like this instead of reading it, and we've only created more problems....

ok thanks... i got me an appointment at 'hi performance art' for new stainless steel dual tips, 80s series muffler, and labor for $250-300. and they might get the K&N RX-4750 for me too.
does this sound like a reasonable price? i think it is...

i hope they do good work, lifetime warrenty too. they're located right off 65.
