Just a quick update.. So far nothing. I haven't received any samples so this is dead unless I have some interested folks in sending a sample muffler.

A as stock as possible 1.7 and 2.0 would be great. I really need to know my constraints from a mount up stand point.

Ideally some one sends one that wants one so we can work together on the development.

I purchased a prototype 4 cylinder muffler from Ben a couple years ago. It was a really cool piece. When I decided to go six, I sold it and now I believe its with Zach. I'm surprised more people aren't jumping on this. Lightweight, cool looking, stainless...

I will be in the market for a 4cyl performance muffler for my '72 1.7L. Trying to convince myself out of dropping $1K for a SCART system now that my car is finally running.

As Stone mentioned, there is a difference in exit pipe location. I installed a late 1.7/1.8 rear valence on my car and my stock tail pipe is slightly further inset than the late valence cut out.

An interesting concept may be to offer an adjustable tip that can slide to the position of either cut out location. Some people that don't run a rear valence may not like the sight of a slip joint but I would rock it with a decent looking clamp.

There are lots of possibilities.

The tail pipe will definitely be adjustable.. Thats a given for this product.

I did get the muffler yesterday so 1st thing is to draw the flanges up..
