That was the first and only muffler of mine that has ever failed. The reason was not known at that time and the fellow said it only had about 900 miles on it and had gotten progressively louder over time. He offered to pay me for a new one. I was just relieved to know the failure was due to above the limit operating temperatures and that the body itself was unharmed. We left the type of packing material we use unchanged as this now becomes a warning that you have a problem. This packing is not used in track or "hooligan" mufflers that are continuously exposed to cherry red turbos.
