Turbo muffler

Anyone heard of a turbo muffler? Apparently it was used as the factory muffler for the mustang... I got a quote to have it installed for $80. Anyone running this on their JK? Have any video?

Just drill a hole in yours. Will make the same sound for free. Not worth it at all you can get the dual cat back exhaust on amazon for $160

If your going for sound or at least look, this will look better and is very easy to install. Don't pay some one to do something that takes about an hour tops with a Max of 3-5 hand tools.

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.

Got it on mine. I had a Flowmaster 40 put on and it sounded awful. Took it back to the muffler show and they said they would put the Trush Turbo on for free. I planned on doing another muffler later but it makes the prefect sound for me. No drone, quiet when idle, and a great rumble when you hit the gas without waking up half the neighborhood.

I really like it myself. May not last as long but at the price, who cares.
