Muffler history 101.
Yes .. Walker made the OEM turbo muffler for the 1964 Corvair Spyder. Why? Because it had a factory turbo. The reason the Corvair turbo muffler was popular for muscle car owners was due to the factory OEM 2.5" inlet and outlet design.. not to mention it was only about 11" long.
The only rival was the OEM Hemi muffler.. 2.25" inlet and outlet... however it was much longer.
Probably both were made by Walker... which is now the parent for Dynomax... which is now the parent for Thrush. Or something like that... don't know who owns who anymore - I believe all these brands are owned by Tenneco.
At the time, Thrush was popular for their glasspack canisters.
Ask a Dynomax rep the history behind the Super Turbo muffler .. it all points back to the 1964 Corvair, not the Mustang.
