The only clips I can really find are of them on Mustangs, unfortunately.

The magnaflow is highly recommended due to it'* price, and the fact that it'* also a crossflow muffler. A.K.A. a Camaro/Firebird muffler. And almost everyone else seems to have one.

I didn't go with one because I didn't want mine to sound like everyone else'*, lol. No offense... For example, I'm using a Cherrybomb Vortex muffler.

Most mufflers will be anywhere from 13" - 18", with 4x9" - 5 x8". Here'* an example, using a Flowmaster. They're dimensions are 13" long case, 19" overall length, with a thickness/width of 4x9.75"

That'* about the most common size you can go with, and almost every muffler company makes them that size. The case length you'd prolly want would be from 13" - 15".

alrlight, now whats the difference between



and



besides the size

is there a performance difference in the selection of how many inlets/outlets i choose?

and the smallest muffler with a 3" in/outlet is 20" long, would that fit or is that too big??

and is 4x9 better, or is 5x8 better?

get under your car and look what you have first.....theres no use in picking out a muffler unless you can look what you have.....you will have 2 mufflers, each with one inlet, one outlet....measure ur pipe, its probably 2.5", you dont have 3"

I know nothing about HKS and GReddy. But i do know that Solo performance built a cat back for the Turbo solstice that was the first.. and dyno numbers were excellent.
