Angry One of the problems found in the PPI is my muffler rattles internally

..... it's like WTF? it couldn't have been cheap muffler to purchase. Something broke loose inside. I have no idea what brand it is, but it's a stainless oval shape input and output from the same side, single exhaust. If I can figure out the brand name, maybe there is a warranty? I guess too, I could have the end cut off, reweld the offending pipes inside and then reweld the end piece back on.

It makes the car sound like a 58 Ford Edsel everytime I hit a bump.

Solution: Remove muffler, install zork tube (6 inch pipe straight out the back of car), gain 12 hp PLUS much faster turbo spooling.

Also saves the entire weight of the muffler off the back of your car.

A guy at this site sells them in the high grade stainless steel, 321.

Your car might shoot flames briefly when you let off the throttle at high rpms, but the pipe points straight back from the car, so unless somebody is 3 feet behind you at full boost, it won't matter.

And if they are tailgating you at 110 mph, they will back off quickly!

The muffler is the least of your concerns, and you should make sure the shop looks for real problems. Rust on the frame, prior frame repair jobs, engine compression and leakdown, tranny condition.

Thumbs up

Cool, thanks, I'll have to look into that

All the major stuff passed inspection. Tranny synchos, leak down, no rust whatsoever, no collision damage, no oil leaks, electrical and all accessories function properly. I'll post some detail pics later on.

ok, I'll have to whip out the camera and start there

Back to the Zork tube; I know the straightest shot out is the best for HP gain, but are there (non muffler) tubes that bend around the exit at the stock leftside location?

If I did pick a tube that exited out the center rear, are they designed to clear the rear panel but still give descent ground clearance?

Rarlyl8 (Brian) is making custom mufflers, he has pictures on the thread called "930 without pants" which is still active on this first page of topics somewhere, and he posted about the zork on your other thread about what cars mess with porsches.

He can make a straight pipe to the normal location, and also he makes zorks.

Send him a Private message.
