Default Re: Bought some ebay exhaust for my PT :)

I bought one of these a couple of years ago, took it off a month later and gave it to a kid who wanted a noisy car.

My first thoughts were that this appeared to be a quality piece. On the car for just a few days and rusty spots began to appear at the muffler seams. Vendor refunded $25 and we called it good.

I also hoped it wouldn't be as noisy as it was. Some of the initial noise was abated when I replaced the rubber hangers, repositioning the system and straightening it up so (a) it didn't rattle on the frame and (b) allowing a straight exit for the tip.

The thought did cross my mind that some/most of the noise was caused by the thin walls of the connecting pipe. The length of thin stainless, if replaced with a length of mild steel, would probably make a big difference. I say this because the noise inside the car didn't seem to be coming from the outlet but was resonating from the pipe itself.

Anyway, was way too noisy for me, so off it came and the kid with it now couldn't be happier.

My 2 cents.

PS - I remain curious about the Magnaflow OEM MOPAR performance system that occasionally appear on eBay.
