Changing the end can will cause change in FE as the sound is an adrenaline rush and u will be redlining ur engine most times.. If u drive the car as before then very rarely will u loose FE... So u have decide .. U can contact Automech Exhausts and ask Mr. Ajay to courier you the end can.. Which u can get it fixed in any garage.

A manufactured tested stainless steel muffler is always better than a hand made muffler. Stainless steel one's use better quality of glass wool and are tried and tested. It may be expensive but will be worth it...

hey does the mugen sound almost like a free flow (almost).... where did u buy it from in blore and how much including installation etc?

let me know as i desperately need one sooooon. If the sound is nice and hollow and not very loud i would like to go for that instead of a free flow as the basic need rite now is the sound.....

I am planning to get Magnaflow SS muffler from ************* (Mumbai), Also planning to fit Xstream Universal K&N Air filters with free flow here in BLR for my SWIFT.

I have not yet decided whether do I need to go for Freeflow which includes stock Muffler or only go for SS Muffler without headers. I am still thinking of, Probably I will be deciding by this weekend.

well if you can control your excitement and drive the same way like you did without a freeflow, a nd if the job is executed well, you can expect a 10% increase in fuel efficiency.
just incase you are thinking of a freeflow with prime objective being better fuel eff. then i think you should stay away, as you'll spending much more than you will probably save even if you drive in the lower rpms.
