Muffler issue for my Standard

Postby submariner » Tue Jan 18, 2011 6:18 pm



My standard is coming of age to where she needs a new muffler. :cry: any suggestions for a inexpensive replacment for the honking big ass muffler system. :roll:

the headers are ok, something that will slide onto the header pipe. Quiet is good but a nice low throaty rumble would be acceptable.... :twisted: ....

I think that the standard exhaust used is the best replacement. The after market seem to be rather pricey and some are kind of nosey to boot. Guys have also talked about removing the baffle in the muffler and don't like the sound. But to each his own. I put a link to e-bay muffler search, you have the whole gamete. No I don't have anything for sale.......LOL
So if yours is toast, I guess it's how much you want to spend... :?:

Enjoy the ride. They are all good, just some better than others.

Submariner, what are the part numbers of the HD pipes you got? I am having issues with my 86 Aspencade mufflers. Been thinking of just replacing them, but also in the same boat as far as cost.
