This muffler is a direct fit, OE style replacement for my 96 SL series Saturn. Easy installation and nice quiet exhaust note. Downside is they only have lasted and average of two years for me in Michigan winters as I am on my third one. Relatively inexpensive price though so I would recomend this muffler.

Installed this to replace a similar muffler installed by a pro guy on my Saturn SL2'97. I just un-clamped the old one and then spent like half an hour trying to get that piece of rust off the intermediate pipe. But once the old one was out, I was able to just slide on this new Walker. I'm rating this at 3 stars since the old one rusted out in 2 years (although I can't verify it was Walker as well) - rust holes around support bracket, which is more or less expected. But then I looked inside and saw that the internal resonator pipe was also rusted through and actually laying at the bottom of the muffler. Oh well. I have painted the new muffler and bracket with a hi-temp paint, hopefully it will help with longevity a little.

    This was the least expensive muffler they have so I dont expect it to last too long but for the price it will do. The car is quieter now so it does the job. just not sure for how long??

          The muffler was not an exact fit, the tail pipe came out the wrong side of the muffler. It had to be installed upside down and the bend on the pipe had to be cut off

          have 3 kids and own 4 vehicles with this product installed. the mufflers last about 2 years in the harsh north east winter. but the cars have a lot of miles on them and are not worth much to start. these are a good low cost alternative and look identical to the $90.00 product. fit well and will last a little longer if you paint them with high temp paint.

            Comments about Walker Sound Solution Muffler:

            This was easy to install. I just lopped off the original with a reciprocating saw with a metal cutting blade and slid this new one on and clamped it. It only lasted 1 year 11 months and 28,000 miles. Mostly highway driving. I'll replace it with the stainless steal one that Advance Auto sells.

                        A:

                        I am afraid the manufacturer did not include the specifications on that muffler for the diameter of the inlet/outlet. This was the only information available (Muffler; Sound Solution; Optional; Sound Solution Muffler for 21348; SOHC CAMSHAFT; Vin WZ216474 And Before; Requires 36372 Strap Bracket). If it shows as exact fit then the part should fit the stock tail pipe currently on the vehicle and if you could please provide the year, make, model and engine size of the vehicle, we would be better able to assist you.

                        this muffler is designed with a 45 degree bend on the outlet end so the exhaust goes toward the ground. It is designed to be at the end of your exhaust system. It is not intended to have a tailpipe.
