CORRECT! I was only planning to change out the muffler itself...they appear to be the exact same size so I don't think it will harm the performance at all and if so, it can't be that noticeable.localbrew said:Vin, I think they are only talking about fitting the muffler portion of the exhaust on. As the post states it's simply for the tail pipes to stick out. However, a free flowing exhaust typically would not effect the performance. The only time you could possibly loose performance is if you eliminate back pressure. There could be spots on a dyno that you see decreases as well as increases depending on how the flow of the exhaust gasses escape. I highly doubt that by just changing the back section you would loose any performance.
You could to be quite honest, where the HSE exits and tucks up under the car the SC exits and bends down and out. it's a simple steel pipe with a stainless steel brushed aluminum looking cover at the end.Bruin2006 said:I'm assuming there's no way to install/weld the SC tips onto the HSE exhaust.
I checked with the local dealer and the parts guy told me that they don't sell just the tips alone...you would have to buy the whole muffler. So for now, I had a local muffler shop weld some stainless tips onto mine that look pretty close to the supercharged ones.Bruin2006 said:I'm assuming there's no way to install/weld the SC tips onto the HSE exhaust.
