    looks like a spintech to me. I am putting one on my car very soon. They sound badass, especially with a cam.

    Looked like a spin tech to me also. I have a spin tech on my TA.. I love the sound of a spin tech. Hands down, my favorite. That does look alittle different than mine though.

    Totally agree. I think a grinder and some hi temp paint will cure a lot of that.

    I am replacing my pos edelbrock muffler with a spintech 344sc, going to have to do some trimming I think cause the edelbrock muffler is 17" and the spintech is 15", the only good thing about the edelbrock is its full 3", the car came with the edelbrock and I hate it, plan on loosing the ugly edelbrock tips and going with a pair of 4" corsa tips that I got a steal on, as far as looks I am going to coat the muffler with some POR 20 Aluminum Coating, I did a set of manifolds with it and it looks just like Jet Hot when done.

    I've used this system before from Mufflex with both the flowmaster and the spintech muffler. It has to sit to one side on the 4 inch system but it's not that big of a deal,,,,what bothers most people with it is the fact that there is only one tailpipe. We found it to be the best single cat back hands down compared to others we tried. Don't know why I don't see more of them on F-bodies. Glad to see someone has seen the light.

    Ya you just have to go with the smaller tailpipes though and the muffler is designed a little different. Most all of the dual tailpipe mufflers I have seen, even the factory ones tend to sit off to one side. Thats why the factory LT1 exhaust tips were both offset to one side to center them back up under the rear facia.

    We used the single 4 inch system,,,with single in,,,single out, 4 inch muffer. Actually the tailpipe tucks up under the rear facia so well with a small turndown you couldn't really see any of it.
