I'm looking to put a new muffler on my 09 spectra5, but I can't seem to find anything that fits. If anyone has done this what did you use? I would like to put on a flowmaster or a cherry bomb glasspack but if there is anything else that does the trick let me know!
p.s. I don't mind cutting off parts of the muffler if need be

Wish I could help but staying with stock exhaust... I'm older and need the quiet and it won't do anything for performance :)

Get yourself a Flowmaster Delta 60 muffler, it's mellow, made for smaller engines to provide the most torque, & gas mileage. It will give you a nice rich deep tone, without that fart can racket!

Ya i would definitely consider buying one, but my biggest problem is the install. The exhaust piping is really tricky because it connects over my rear axel, so its hard to find something that fits.

Just about any exhaust shop (especially ones with mendrel bend tools) can custom bend the pipe. It's really not that much more to have it custom done at a place that is equipped.

get an tig welder from Harbor Freight for $150.00 and weld on. i purchased a magnaflow mufler for mines and cut the resenator out my spec5 and put straight pipe from the sec cat and magnaflow muffler it sounds really good not loud at all.

Arob why would you put glass packs or even flowmasters on your poor car? if you wanted a V8 chevy you should have purchased a V8 chevy. lol just saying.

I ended up putting a DC Sports straight muffler but got charged way too much to get it installed. I'm looking to do my headers next... any sugestions?
