OUR ONLINE CHECKOUT is TEMPORARILY PAUSED to allow our warehouse staff time to catch up on the shipping and backorder backlog for already received orders in progress.

Our checkout system will re-open on Saturday January 29th at 3:00pm (MST)

You may want to copy and paste to save the items your cart (that includes links back to the items listings) in order to save them, just in case your browser does not. We hope that you will return when our online checkout resumes accepting new orders.

ORDER REQUESTS ARE BEING FULFILLED/SHIPPED as backordered items become available, but many popular products are delayed or in short supply. Restock ETAs for backordered items are often either unavailable, or unreliable. We continue to answer emails as best we can, but we are operating with less than half of our normal staff, so please be patient. Your understanding is appreciated while our company struggles to weather the challenges from Covid-19, and do what we still can to support the aircooled VW hobby.

Budget/ECONO Hide-Out Muffler (Hideaway) for Type 1 Street Headers
Budget/ECONO Hide-Out Muffler (Hideaway) for Type 1 Street Headers
Ceramic Coated one shown in picture.


 
This is a decent budget-minded (Economy) choice muffler for mild street cars! This muffler is placed just outboard of your 1/2 valve cover, the tailpipe exits at the lower lip of the right fender (see additional notes in Product Details below). Muffler support hangs from heater box mounting nut on 1/2 cylinder head. You do have to remove the muffler to adjust your valves, but it IS worth the effort.
Reg Price $104.95

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.

Overview
 
This is a Budget/ECONO muffler for mild street cars. This muffler is placed just outboard of your 1/2 valve cover, the tailpipe exits at the lower lip of the right fender. Muffler support hangs from heater box mounting nut on 1/2 cylinder head. You do have to remove the muffler to adjust your valves, but it IS worth the effort.
Item Features
This muffler is relatively quiet and non-restrictive. Our only complaint is if you drive or park on dirt or gravel, the downward facing exhaust exit will raise dust off the ground, which isn't a problem if you are driving forwards, but if you back up it winds up on your car and in your air filters!

OTHER THAN THAT, this is an decent muffler choice for mild street cars if you are on a budget. The dust issue is not a problem for folks that drive only on concrete and paved roads

The merged model is the version for Merged Comp Exhausts when you aren't using a stinger!

5 of 5 Hide-Out Muffler July 28, 2012
Reviewer: David Gilchrist from Orem, UT United States  
These are terrific for the street! They are quiet and up out of the way, so no ground clearance problems and no dealing with positioning your muffler. I have installed several of these as they come. But these mufflers also lend themselves to a slick mod. With some cutting and welding and extending the tail pipe so it exits out the twin exhaust cut outs like stock.
