    My muffler is coming apart. Rattle at idle and too loud driving. I see a ticket in my future if I don’t address this soon. Any recommendations? Thanks.

    I would say Flowmaster or Magnaflow. On all of my stepfathers cars, they are Magnaflow's and they sound great. They have a good rumble to them

    You make no mention of what your looking for in a muffler except for a replacement. I say you should just stick with a stock one! If you take someone else advice her, I'm sure you will be disappointed with what you choose and blame them for the bad advice.. Good Luck

    Today's stock replacement would more than likely be a Walker sound fx or Turbo muffler.
    O.e would have been 18230. Sound fx is 17808.
    Super Turbo is 17747. Which is the hemi muffler.
    Hope this helps

    I probably will get something stock. Car is 2BBL, single exhaust, 2.76 rear. It’s not a hot rod. New engine is stock, despite the builder’s attempts to sell me on a hopped up camshaft.

    For this application, a walker replacement is a good choice.

    Now that you have some ammo, you can always go around town to a couple of muffler shops and play 20 Q's with them on what you want or lookin for. Then you can make a wise decision. Walker and Maremont are the 2 big names, but see what they have to offer. Good Luck

    Why is longer better? I don’t know much about mufflers.

    Longer mufflers are quieter and no drone inside the car.
    The muffler #'s I mentioned typically have a 19 or 22 inch body 26 or 29 inches ling I am goung by distant memory iirc

    The longer those exhaust gases are going through all those baffles and such, the quieter the exhaust note will be. Think of it as a gun suppressor, the longer the suppressor is , the quieter the bang. Good Luck
