NOTICE

Please read this notice and only continue if you are willing to abide by our updated backorder acquisition and fulfillment terms of service.


Supply-chain disruptions have hampered our ability to acquire/restock items reliably. Additionally, a lack of backorder ETA information is a frustrating "new normal" for our hobby. As a result, we have had to change our BACKORDER ACQUISITION TERMS OF SERVICE. If you opt to have us "send backorders later", backordered items will ship automatically within 30 days IF we are able to get them. Longer than 30 day backorders WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY CANCELLED. Made-to-order, Special-Order, and Direct-shipped items may take longer than 30 days, and will NOT be auto-canceled.


On the next page, you will be prompted to select a BACKORDER HANDLING INSTRUCTION for your Order Request. In every case, you are NOT CHARGED for out-of-stock items (we ONLY charge for items that are available to be shipped in a timely or reasonably reliable timeframe). If you opt to "send backorders later" you are automatically added to the waitlist for those items, and we post stock status / backorder info to your Order Status/Progress/History Detail View in your online Customer Account. You can email to cancel un-shipped/un-paid items at any time as long as they are not direct-shipped, special order or made/machined-to-order.

Currently many shipments are delayed and our response time to emails are slow (we are severely short-staffed). Please trust that even if we can't reply to your email promptly, we are continuing to work to fulfill your Order Request as best we can, and we will contact you once we have any new information that is not already posted in your online Order Progress/History area in your customer account.


Please only continue if you are prepared to be PATIENT. Some of the items in your cart might be out-of-stock, and if that is the case, within a day or two we will post itemized stock status information to your account and/or email you to let you know. We appreciate your continued support and understanding.

THIS MUFFLER FITS THE FLANGED HEATER BOXER SIDEWINDER VERSION! IF YOU HAVE THE SLIP JOINTED VERSION YOU NEED OUR SW200!
A-1's Competition Sidewinder Muffler uses A-1's exclusive 'magna flo' muffler design built to A1's specifications. Note the muffler end cap are located on the same end cap for the most versitile fitment. This design allows a clean and even exhaust note while achieving a noise level under 90 decibels (sound levels may vary due to engine horsepower). Furthermore, these mufflers have A-1s "Venturi Power Cone", that was pioneered by A-1 over 20 years ago. This is a smooth transition from the collector outlet to the muffler core size, which produces power levels through a muffler that are normally not achieved unless you have a stinger!

The maximum ground clearance this muffler has is simply icing on the cake to it's performance!

A-1's mufflers are hand-built with Heavy Duty steel, not that paper thin junk! Are you sick of flanges that are warped out of the box, or that bend during normal exhaust tightening? End THAT once and for all with these Double Thick Tru Flat 3/8" collector flanges that are so straight you don't even need gaskets if you don't want to use them!

Once you've decided on the A-1 Performance Header and muffler that is right for you, don't forget to check out the related products below for compatible A-1 products to build the ultimate exhaust system for your ride!

Choose Exhaust Finish / Coating



Ceramic Coating is a life EXTENDER, not a lifetime coating. In other words, you should expect the coating to make the pipes last longer than normal but don't expect the coating to be shiny or to last forever. Normal lifespan varies according to where you live and if you drive the car in the winter in the salt zones. Salt zone, daily driver summer and winter the systems should last about 4 to 5 years normally.
Choose Collector Flange



The V-band Clamp Collector Flange option is a single Band-Clamp that holds the stinger or muffler to the header's collector. It's smaller and cleaner looking, and much faster to connect and disconnect, than the traditional 3-bolt collectors. YOU MUST ADD THE V-BAND OPTION TO BOTH YOUR MUFFLER AND HEADER TO GET A COMPLETE V-BAND SYSTEM. The upgrade fee of $60 is ONLY for one side.
