Here is the 1st 914 2.0 muffler for @superhawk996 .. It turned out really nice .. I hope this product will be well received as we took along time to develop this based off of the 914-6 muffler factory design and implemented allot of those principles to the 2.0 muffler. Rumor has it may do a group buy or special pricing for okteenerfestAttached Image Attached Image

That will be a problem. My engine is in pieces at the moment and so is the chassis.

At the moment I’m cash flowing parts in anticipation of a complete vehicle (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif)

That way I avoid a huge cash outflow, lump sum, at final assembly and/or lead time issues.

I think we need to find someone with a well sorted engine nearby who can bolt this on long enough to get a sound clip. I'm really interested in these but am in the camp who wants to hear it. I'm also curious if it is practical to tweak the guts of these things to adjust the sound up or down to buyer's taste. I know nothing about muffler design and just asking that question probably makes it obvious.

I am good with someone testing it but am not down for tweaking each unit for sound levels.. One thing I have learned is that when you sell a la carte you open your self up to a huge confusing mess.. Rewind 3 years ago when I offered the 914-6 heat exchangers up for the 1st time I offered with or without o2 bungs.. People were sending o2 bungs with all different location requests and trust me nothing was standard.. It really gets balled up fast.

I’m totally fine if Ben wants to bolt up and get a sound clip or would work it out if there is a volunteer in Detroit area

Fair enough and totally understandable. I was more thinking along the lines of offering a couple version for sound rather than custom tweaks. Even with that, I have no idea what it would entail in additional R&D and production costs, so you can just ignore my ignorance or give me one of these (IMG:style_emoticons/default/slap.gif) . In reality, I'm probably the only person on the forum who wants a muffler as quiet as I'd like so will settle for as quiet as I can get. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Honestly I bought without need to hear based solely on the quality of Ben’s work and the fact that there any really any viable alternatives done this well in stainless.

I also don’t mind loud nor do I mind quiet. Per Ben’s note, the ability to tweak could drive you crazy. I know we’ll how much work goes into an OEM exhaust to meet pass by noise regulations and to simultaneously tune character. Ben doesn’t have that kind of time or resources and I accept that reality.

Count me as interested as well.

Running 2056cc with 40mm carbs and the rusty Monza/Manta that came with my car. I'd volunteer as tribute if you want to ship the next production unit to VA for me to record a sound clip. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/happy11.gif)

Jake Raby just did with my 912e muffler with the same internals and he messaged me with positive results.
