Re: [DML] Advantages of Spec .01 Exhaust



You have to actually read my posts: "I know there are alternatives...".

My question is: why do owners put a new muffler back there when converting to dual exhaust, as was done to this car? During the conversion is a perfect time to correct that particular aspect of bad design. Not only do you gain working space, but you eliminate damaging heat. Putting a new muffler back where the old one was makes as little sense as putting Grade 10.9 bolts back in the trailing arms, or putting in a new plastic clutch line. 

To the best of my knowledge only John offers a ready made dual exhaust package that eliminates the muffler across the back of the car.

Anyone care to list advantages of a muffler in the stock location (other than reduced time on the assembly line)?

I know there are alternatives, such as a strap wrench, but why not simply move the muffler in the first place, not only opening up gobs of working room, but also preserving your fascia from warping, and eliminating heat damage to belts and seals on the front of the engine:
