Default Ebay muffler, any users out there?

Howdy ya'll,[8D]

I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with these polished stainless steel mufflers found on Ebay -
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...category=33636

I'm thinking about trying one out, leave the original pipes on, and just get a shop to weld on the muffler for me. These come with a removable silencer for those "quiet times" (like when da wifes wit ya's).

Thanks for any user responses.[|)]

Bet it'll be hard to weld - doubt there'll be much metal for $5.50..[:I]

Sorry, I don't see where this item is listed as Stainless? [:I]
What I am seeing, is High Polished, in the listing. To me, that means it will Rust...

This one particular one does not say ss, but others like it do. Was only using it for an example. Lots of different styles, all the same kind of deal. Low buy price, $25 - $35 shipping. Was just wanting user feedback.

As a general rule, if shipping is more than the product I look for it elsewhere.[8)]

I've heard these before. Turbo mufflers making up to and extra 12hp, yeah right! It's a ricer fart muffler, and the silencer is there if you prefer it to sound like a real muffler and not that bees in a can combined with a cherry bomb muffler sound. Forget these type and go with the tried and true mufflers, for example Flowmasters.

Ah, great minds think alike, Mike. Flowmaster: the only option.

OK, OK, guess it's not worth a try. Just trying to stretch limited funds was the only reason I was considering it.

Thanks anyway.[:I]
