    The previous owner removed the cat convertor and welded a pipe in there nicely and the oem muffler was rusting out. So i bought this turbo raptor muffter and cut the old muffler out. Using the stock pipe and tail pipe and it fit and worked great. Now with out the cat convertor and with this better muffler it sounds awesome for a 4 banger honestly. And the off the line performance as well as passing power were wayyy bettet. Im gettin around 2-3 mpg diff. I can pull my boat easier. The only thing i did was put a chrome resonator tip on the tail pipe so it wasnt raspy. I have a k&n drop in filter and always use mobile one synthetic oil with lucas oil stabizer and k&n oil filter. And the truck runs great. Its a 1996 Ford Ranger Splash single cab with 2.3L 4cyl motor and 5-speed transmission and has over 200k miles and still runs like new.

    Very simple to install on my 98 Dodge Ram 1500 4wd. Very easy, jumped under truck, cut off original muffler, clean up the pipe and installed the muffler. All within 1 hour. I was a bit surprised how loud this is, I knew it was going to be a bit noisier but it's more than I really wanted. I will live with it for the price!

        I have a 1995 jeep Cherokee sport with a 4.oL. the ome muffler was clogged so I bought the raptor and enjoy the sound it provided. I have 12 inches of pipe between the muffler and cat and a 90 at the end of the pipe so it is a bit loud, fine with me. I have gained some mpg and dropped my rmps by 100 when crusing at 65. it is quite at that point.

            Installed this on 1995 Jeep Wrangler YJ with 4.0L 6 cylinder. The old muffler had completely rusted through. I assumed the Raptor would give a nice rumble or deep sound. I could not have been more wrong. It sounded exactly like the rusted through muffler. The Raptor might sound better on a V-8, but definitely not on the 4.0L.

              bought this muffler about 6 months ago and started hearing this very anoying exaust rattle . I thought it was a heat sheild on my chevy truck. it sounded bad going down the road like something was falling off I crawled under the truck and the outlet was pushed in the muffler where the outlet comes out of the muffler shell. I will never buy another flowtech brand muffler. this muffler had less than 1000 miles on it . waste of money

                took off my stock muffler and tail pipe of my 2002 Gmc sierra 1500 5.3L and put on this muffler, I then put a 45 degree pipe right at the outlet of the muffler and another 45 degree pipe at the end of that 45 and then put a 4 inch tip at the end of that pipe. The exhaust comes out right before the passenger side tire and is completely legal and makes your truck sound nice and loud outside yet it still gives you some sound inside the cab. I Recomend this.

                  Installed in under five minutes with dump pipe, and sounds great!

                            I put a set of these mufflers on my 1983 Monte Carlo. They sound great, and are much quieter than the open headers that I was running. The install was great. The muffler slid right onto my collector adaptor with a little help from a hammer.

                                What is next cheapest.
                                Doesn't have to be this muffler
                                I am replacing 30" 2 1/2" straight pipe
                                want cheap quiet muffler.

                                Also what is length of this or any 30" or under muffler?
                                Seems the longer ones are quieter.
