No offence either, but you do get what you pay for. But hey, for about $40US shipped + the $$ to get welded in place, it does sound tempting. However just a quick heads up, I can say with almost 100% certainty that the length of 23" given is the overall length, including the tips and possible the inlet pipe as well. This is one area that I considered when sourcing a muffler. I wanted to get one with a can size that is as close to or equivalent to to OEM one. And from what I have found, there are very few if any aftermarket/universal ones that come close. The only one that I can say that comes close is the Remus bolt-on. It's can size alone is 17" x 6.25" x 11.5". The tips are another 6.75" long and the inlet pipe is another 7" long (linear measurement). But then again it's a $550+ muffler. However there are cheaper universal Remus mufflers you can get and they sound great as well.
From what I've been told, if it's a quiet muffler you want, then make sure to go won with the biggest can size. Simple, the smaller the can, the less 'muffling' it will do.
ty i installed it myself so i think total price of everything for me was like 45 dollars took me about 2 hours on a lift to get it on i could of done it faster but i wanted to weld a connector pipe that does not hang low since i knew i was going to lower it.
if i was you the most i would pay someone to do it is prob $50.
and yes this pipe is way smaller then the stock can, when i pulled out the stock can i was amazed at how huge it was..
I had one like this when I was still in Venezuela. The car was pretty loud with it, too much for me, especially when I also installed a HSH header. So I changed it for the Remus (in 2002), had the latter ever since....
Still, it sits nice on your car, Casual..
