Question Mufflers for 5-6K

Anyone have any info about a decent brand or muffler which i can get in the 5000-6500rs category??
Would love to upgrade my muffler and i dont want to spend 10k over for it.

Hey,

Why do you want to spend so much on a muffler. Which car is this for and you have headers or not. If its only sound you can get it done for much less and if you want looks as well you can go in for locally made SS mufflers which will gice you both at half the price.

join the club man...

i was like you couple of weeks back... but think again... if u get a muffler and then a header there is extra work involved in cutting the welds to the muffler and rewelding the headers.... costs a bit more...

just spend another couple of grands.... contact Psycho from Tbhp blore... got my esteem a set of headers and free flows... sounds like a beauty... performs like a dream.... was postponing this job for 2 years and finally got it....

if u can spend 5k for a muffler as well go for a free flow.... will cost u lesser and will sound wayyyyy better.... trust me

so its not just the sound but also performance that comes as a package for just a wee bit more money and i mean wee bit...

my advise.... PM psycho... take a look at one of the cars he has worked on... drive it too... and then try a car with a muffler....

i hope u will decide with ur brains like i did... all the best....

Yup i did .they said they dont do any free flow systems for the elantra yet. Suggested i buy the K&N filter. Go figure . Now im sure there is a difference between mufflers and air filters.

Yup got a petrol elantra. And the embera is doing good. Automech could have quoted a universal muffler for me but they didn't . Go figure. Talked to the magnaflow people in the us, might get one delivered from there. Just trying to get an idea on the pricing at the moment. Also working on a body kit idea for my elantra. Lets see if what i have planned can become reality..
