Default A Good Muffler

Hey All:

I want to get a good muffler for my Cruiser so I can get some good sound on the cheap... Anyone have any suggestions for a good aftermarket muffler setup that will produce a lower, throaty sound?

Thanks

Marc

Marc: Welcome to the Forum.

As to your question for buying something "CHEAP" You will find out that cheap normally means something questionable and buying it and putting it on the PT you'll later buy that same part a while later and pay more, "YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR". Save your money for something more expensive that you want!!

I've put a couple people onto the muffler I had (before I went to duals) and they seem to like it. It's not the cheapest way to go as your have to have a muffler shop cut off the old muffler and install the new one and you'll need some sort of exhaust tip at the end. It's the Dyno Max 17732. Nice sound and not too much noise inside the car.

All mufflers are different to different people and what's OK with one will be too loud for others. Try and fine a PT that sounds nice to you and ask the owner what system he has.

As Hooligan said; buy cheap and you'll end up replacing it and wasting your money.

I agree with CREWZIN that Dynomax is a great choice. Sounded good on my '01 na PT.
