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.

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 $114.95

Choose Finish



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.
