The 80 seires fit'* fine. It'* a direct replacement for your stock SSE/i muffler! Maybe a different shop would be better... Or take some pix to them and ask why it wouldn't work.

No, the F body mufflers we use would fit a lot easier, and require less work then 2 cherry bombs.

Agreed. You do have to cut and splice a little with the Fbody mufflers, but not much. You got ripped, methinks.

Sounds like that to me as well. After the first phone call, I would have told them to hold off on it all. That'* too bad. :(
