Much slower cars with alot less horsepower than yours that don't do the 1 mile drag races have already burned them up and rendered them useless here in Florida.
If you're going to blaspheme me at least tell the whole story.
The Florida car had a seized turbo. That tends to get a little warm. I've had 3 mufflers returned due to packing material melting, all 3 had heat issues and 2 required engine rebuilds. Melted packing material means you have a problem so I'm not changing the formula.

I replaced all 3 muffler bodies for free by the way.

Any muffler I might build for Juan (or an application such as his) will have stainless wool packing. This is not your typical street turbo. I make application specific products, please do not assume otherwise.

Juan you might also look into the modular bullit mufflers that have the screw-off ends made to be re-packed. They look like David's muffler body. It doesn't take much to quiet these cars down.
