Default Cheap Muff needed!

The muffler on my 02 RS is all rusted out. The bumper exposes it fully and it looks disgusting, like my car has an STD. It is shameful.

What's a cheap, aftermarket stainless muffler I can get locally to fix this? I don't want anything louder.

Thanks!

I have a stock 02 TS/RS muffler I could let go really cheap. It has been off the car the past several years and is in excellent condition.

The other option would be find yourself a stock WRX muffler and have it reflanged to fit. I'm very happy with mine. It's just enough to get rid of the econobox exhaust note of the stock muffler while still being quiet.

Ewww, my buddy hooked up with a surrey girl while he was in the Cayman (sp?) Islands. They do get around.
Good luck finding a new Muff!

I haven't responded, but au112 is a vulture. He has come into my thread to jack my ****.

AllWheelDrift, I'm interested to know more about the WRX muffler route. Does the WRX item rust and get all nasty, like the stock one? And what exactly had to be done to make it fit?

Mine was already modified when I bought it, but basically, the flange needs to be cut and replaced because the WRX one is larger. I think most places charge around $100 to do it. I'm not sure how much better the WRX muffler stands up but mine still looks OK. The tips could use a cleaning though.

Thanks.

On second thought, someone suggested I just try some rust-off solution. It'll be cheapest because I really don't care about the look/sound, other than having it looking clean.

Thanks for the responses, guys.
