    Comments about Bosal Exhaust Products:

    Nice to install a quality exhaust product manufactured to a standard that it can bolt on with a minimum of effort. This went on easily and in a short amount of time. When they say OEM replacement it does just that! The muffler looks to be high quality and the noise level seems to be at a level of original equipment. The welds were good and the aluminized steel tubing appears to be of high quality although here in Northern Indiana, only the test of a few winters on salt-covered roads will tell the tale. Very happy with this product!

        Comments about Bosal Exhaust Products:

        After much shopping around and price comparison I decided on this product. The discounts offered through online ordering made it competitively priced and the no charge shipping along with the lifetime guarantee made it an easy choice. Shipping was quick, arrived when promised, and well packaged. The best was the exact fit so when it came time to install it was just a matter of removing the old and putting the new in place. Overall I am very pleased with the product and shopping experience.

          Also ordered and replaced resonator pipe in front of this. (Don't forget the donut). Also perfect fit. Bosal has great products. Really dislike working on foreign cars, its the son's college car. But I must say this was very easy to replace even for a Japanese car.

                Comments about Bosal Exhaust Products:

                I used this to replace my 1998 Honda Civic OEM muffler. It fit perfectly, and was very easy to install. I was a little bit concerned because the dimensions shown on the webpage didn't match the dimensions that I took from my OEM muffler, but out of the box they look exactly alike.

                A very nice and quiet sound, and very good performance (better than with the muffler not there).

                No other parts needed. I reused the original bolts/springs, and just cleaned off the pipe connection with some sand paper and a rag. Including lifting up the car, removing the old muffler, installing the new muffler, testing it, and lowering the car it probably took me about 45 minutes, and I don't work on cars that often.
