04 SXT SOHC, Manual, K&N 69 typhoon downpipe

Okay so, I've decided to go against doing a full cat-back exhaust system, considering the car's valued at under 2,000 now, i dont imagine throwing 500$ exhaust would be very practical. So, i think i will try to buy a new muffler (Mine is popping and leaking right now anyway) instead! I tried to find some solid information about Inlet/outlet muffler sizes but came up rather short, because custom fit parts say 2'' inlet, but when i read the spec it says my car should have 2 1/4'' inlet, could anyone clear this up? Also, has anyone done this and replaced the muffler, does it sound at least a little better with a nicer brand like Magnaflow? Also, am I could to have to cut or weld to make this happen? And lastly, if i buy an aftermarket muffler, is the tail pile just gonna sit to the side? Or should i buy an exhaust tip or something? thanks guys, you're always of great help.

From the piece over the axle to the muffler it is 2". If you go to an exhaust shop you could have them use 2 1/4" piping and custom bend you a piece so you can have a straight exit muffler. A lot of people enjoy just taking off the rear muffler and putting a large glasspack in the mid pipe. A 31" one should work well.

However, there are cheap catback systems on ebay that you could always give a shot.

This one is $135, shipped.

This one is $225 and comes with a header and cat delete pipe.

This one is $90, and although it's designed for an SRT-4, it'll bolt on to the car just fine.

They will need to expand the end of the midpipe for 2.25" piping to fit correctly. The very end is where they necked it down to 2.00" to fit the muffler pipe to the midpipe.

They likely did it to maintain velocity for the least amount of back pressure for average cruising rpm's. Remember these were made more for fuel economy, than performance.

The outlet of the SE muffler is actually 1.875" Wink
