V6 magnaflow

Can anyone explain the difference between these two mufflers. Besides the obvious that one says for v6.

From what I can see it looks like the the inlet side one just comes with a extra pipe for the inlet. Also one is smaller lengthwise as compared to the other one by 2".

I'm thinking that I could flip the second one over so the inlet is the closest to the rear bumper and the two outlets will be near the body of the car.

I wouldnt be able to help you with fitment as i never did exhaust on a camaro/firbird. Though from what I can see the first one looks like it would be easier to get in position.

the v8 muffler is transverse like stock, the v6 is one in and 2 out same side, so you cant flip it around, thats why they have the pipe loop back around.

But the v8 one could be flipped so the two outlets are towards the body of the car

To be frank a muffler is a muffler, the only real difference would be the sound that exits the tail pipes, minus the obvious if the inlet and outlet pipes are different sizes

Both images state that the mufflers are not reversable.

Uh no. If you look at the dimensions of the muffler the v8 is slighly larger because internally its baffled differently to allow more exhaust fumes to pass quicker. Also the top section of those mufflers are thicker metal and have a built in heat sheild, but i guess you could flip it if you would like to melt your gas tank.

I am running a Dynomax turbo muffler similar to the second picture.

Pic 1 is transverse with a center inlet which equals more material needed to do the dual tail pipe.
Pic 2 is an offset setup, needs less material for a dual tail pipe setup. This will also be more compact.




As seen from behind:

Why not keep the stick mufflers and buy a electric cut out. Loud when you want it, quiet when you don't.

The stock is starting to rust out. Plus it is already dual setup but I guess who ever put it on did not install it right or the passenger side is clogged.

An electric cut out allows the driver to either use the mufflers or the sound of just strait headers with a click of a button it like a flap inside the exhaust kinda lol

What I ment was they all do the same job the size of the muffler doesn't mean anything my truck has a 5.7 and its the size of a large suitcase can you tell me why that is because I doubt it would fit under the tail of my firebird properly.

Probably because the emissions on a truck is different. A muffler uses baffles, that slow the passing of gas and so it hits all the stuff inside. A truck probably has a larger muffler to allow more gas to flow quickly and to limit the noise. Just because your bird and truck have the same block doesnt mean its the same motor. If your truck is older than i am assuming its a gen 2 block maybe a gen 3. so it probably has different heads, cam, emissions stuff. So it needs a larger muffler. If its newer than your car, the larger muffler may be due to stricter emission standards.

Mufflers don't really do much for emissions. Just noise control, and back pressure.
