Default WTB: rust-free GT muffler

OEM cost is $400. 5290586AD
The Walker replacement is about $100.

Anyone have an extra, or can sell one used in perfect shape ? Mine is shot.

For exhaust, a muffler shop can usually fit a generic muffler with the correct flow rate to just about any car. This means their cost for the muffler itself is often much lower than a direct replacement muffler. The result is that you can sometimes have a shop install a muffler turnkey for less than you can buy a direct fit muffler that you still have to install yourself.

If me, I'd go to a local performance exhaust shop and tell them I want a new inexpensive semi-stock muffler with a chrome or stainless tip. They'd then give me some options and I'd chose the one that fits my budget.

A muffler from the junkyard here costs $20 plus tax ($22.60). I can usually find a good one here. most of the time the rear hangar is the only thing missing, but its not necessary.

Anyway I am not sure what shipping would be. Probably $40-50. Assuming a reasonable $10 charge to go get it, you would be looking at close to $100 anyway.

There aren't any u-pull it yards out your way?
