Experienced mechanics share their insights in answering this question :
Hi there. It is possible for any kind of muffler to install onto your vehicle. This will determine if there is room for the muffler and if the pipe size is the same or not. If the pipe is the same and there is room for the muffler, then you can cut off your old pipes and install the new muffler and add on new pipes with clamps and sleeves to hold everything together. If the muffler pipe is smaller, then I suggest not using it for there will be too much back pressure on the engine. If the muffler pipe is bigger, you can get an adapter pipe to make it fit. If you need further assistance with the alteration of your exhaust system, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.

A: Exhaust headers are designed to fit a specific combination of engine and vehicle. Just because a set of headers fit a similar vehicle with the same engine, doesn`t mean it will fit your car. The header flange must match the cylinder head bolt pattern.
Shape & Size Affects Muffler Performance

A muffler`s “cross section,” or engineered shape and size, helps determine its sound characteristics, ease of installation, and exhaust system backpressure.

There are many symptoms to keep an eye out for if your exhaust system has a problem. Trouble with the muffler will often make your Subaru sound much louder.
Different engines sound differently and produce different frequencies and harmonics in their exhaust systems. So don`t expect a universal muffler to sound exactly the same regardless of what kind of vehicle is it installed on. It won`t. Some performance mufflers are tunable in that they have removable baffles.
Stock and performance mufflers are available in direct-fit or universal configurations. You`ll find the greatest selection in universal products, which can be adapted and made to fit almost any vehicle.
When it comes to your vehicle`s exhaust pipes, size really does matter. Too small, and you`ll be missing out on improved performance and gas mileage; too big, and your engine will work much harder than it has to.
If you thought that a bigger exhaust system meant more power, it`s not always true. Some drivers want an exhaust that will improve the sound and look of their vehicle.
The engine and road noise are a common characteristic of Subaru vehicles. This has to do with the engine design and the all-wheel drive system and I would guess a general lack on noise cancelling insulation.
With cylinders 1 and 3 being slightly different in length to 2 and 4 any sound has to move in an unconventional manner through the exhaust and produces the unique rumble. If you`re a Subaru owner and are looking for parts click here to see what we have available in stock today.
The dangers of a bad exhaust system

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning: If your car`s exhaust is leaking badly enough, or in the right place, it`s very possible that carbon monoxide will enter your car. If the windows are rolled up, this can actually be lethal. Even with the windows down, it can make you feel very sick.

Universal mufflers work fine on average cars but you have to find one that matches your inlet and outlet of your existing muffler. It also has to match in length and diameter. Then you have to cut off the old muffler and leave enough pipe in front of it so you can attach the new one.
A good rule is to choose an exhaust pipe with a diameter proportional to your engine`s horsepower. However, ensure that the piping diameter is relatively wider than the stock. If your car`s engine has 400 horsepower, choose an aftermarket exhaust with a piping diameter of about 4`.
Universal mufflers work fine on average cars but you have to find one that matches your inlet and outlet of your existing muffler. It also has to match in length and diameter. Then you have to cut off the old muffler and leave enough pipe in front of it so you can attach the new one.
With the right tools, parts, and patience, you can perform an exhaust system installation yourself. This job is pretty straight forward as long as you are using exact-fit replacement parts.

Want to put dual exhaust on, but not sure if that’s going to mess with my computer.
ANSWER : Hi there. Although we typically don’t offer mechanical tips on aftermarket upgrades, in this case, you are correct to be concerned about how the OEM computer is going to ’react’ to the exhaust upgrade. In most cases, the system that will be compromised is the catalytic converter and emissions systems; which depending on what US State you live, could impact the vehicle’s ability to pass smog or safety inspections. Typically exhaust system upgrades are accompanied by performance tuner upgrades as well. You might want to contact the exhaust manufacturer to ask them for their advice on this matter.

I bought two new tires and rims to put on my car and I want to know if I can make them fit.
ANSWER : Hi there. Anytime you purchase new tires and wheels that are not OEM options (which this 225/45zr17 is not), you risk creating multiple issues that will impact the vehicles performance such as ABS operation, speedometer, cruise control, and braking.

The standard rule used to be, for every inch in wheel size, you need to decrease aspect ratio (the 55 number) by one (making it a 50-series tire). Width would also increase by one size (to 215 from 205). By having a wider tire on there than is recommended, you also risk having turning radius issues and braking suspension components.

Due to these facts, I wouldn’t recommend putting those wheel and tires on your vehicle. If you were to install them, you’d need to purchase new lug nuts that are snug for that individual bolt pattern. Since we can’t see them; it’s impossible to tell you for certain if the ones you have will work.

Will an 94 jaguar xjs alternator fit and work on an 94 jaguar xj6
ANSWER : The XJ6 uses a 120 amp alternator (AC Delco 334-1203) while the XJS uses a 115 amp alternator (AC Delco 334-1859). The terminal connections on the two alternators are NOT in the same position. Inasmuch as the part numbers for the two applications are different, the parts are considered to be not interchangeable. As a practical matter, if the pulley is IDENTICAL in EVERY respect and the pulley is in the IDENTICAL position in the serpentine drive belt circuit (same plane!, same position), and the alternator fits the frame, you can probably use it without ill effect. However, if the alternator is returnable, the optimal solution and the recommended practice is to return it and buy the actual part required in the catalog. If you desire alternator relacement by a certified Mechanic, dispatched by YourMechanic right to your location, please request alternator service and the responding certified mechanic will get this taken care of for you. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic as we are always here to help you.

How to know if an exhaust muffler will fit my kawasaki KDX 1992 200cc
ANSWER : The best thing to do is to go to a motorcycle parts store and have them look it up for you. If you are doing something custom, it is simply a matter of size. You will need a tape measure and patience. The first thing you will need to know, is if the physical size of the muffler you want to use is something that will fit your motorcycle? Take the height, width and length measurements of the space you have to install the muffler. Choose a muffler that fits in this range.

The next measurement is crucial. You will either be inserting the end of the muffler inside or outside of the pipe coming off of your motor. You can do either, but you will want to know the inside diameter (ID) and the outside diameter (OD) of the pipe on the motor. When choosing the new muffler, you will need to be sure the new muffler is of a size that will fit inside or outside the existing exhaust pipe. The best thing to do is to install in on the outside of the present exhaust pipe.

Another thing you should definitely consider, two stroke motors are very sensitive to back pressure created by the muffler. They are actually referred to as pipes. Choosing the pipe is part of tuning a two stroke. If your looking to play with the tuning of your bike, then play away. If you just want to know what pipe is the best to use for your intended use, then I suggest speaking with someone who has done a lot of work on your particular bike. They will be able to tell you what to choose.

There simply is no substitution for experience with such a change on a two stroke bike.

In addition, this is an automotive based website. I just happen to know quite a bit about setting up a two stroke, but I don’t have direct experience with your particular bike.

Good luck!

How long does a muffler last? How many miles it take to replace a muffler? Is theirs any difference between each muffler? (2 muffler)
ANSWER : There is a good chance it is the ’flex’ pipe section leaking. The life of the exhaust depends on mileage, driving conditions, and where you live. Snow and icy climates rip through exhaust systems with rust and road salt.

The 3.0 Hondas come with a stainless steel exhaust system which last for almost forever. The flex pipe typically cracks due to loose engine mounts. If someone has replaced the exhaust, then it may have rusted through. If you have the factory exhaust, then it should last the life of the car unless you live in a snow-type climate. If you want to have the noise looked at, a technician from YourMechanic can come to your home or office to inspect your exhaust system and let you know what adjustments should be done.

How do I know I have two resonators? Can I have two mufflers in each side with one resonator? Which side is most important? Thank You.
ANSWER : You may have a single small resonator in the middle of the car that splits to the two mufflers. One on each side with single or dual tip outlets. The two mufflers are equal to each other to exit the exhaust flow. For more concrete advice, I’d recommend having an expert technician check out your specific muffler situation in person. A technician from YourMechanic can come to your home or office inspect your exhaust system and assist with any repairs that are needed.
