We have been working with Vintage speed to try to put together a GB and we finally got numbers together. The catch, we need 25 units to make it happen. We will be bringing them over ocean freight, so the final numbers will be in shipping, but will be much cheaper than bringing in individually.

I have seen some of their work, and will have a sample prior to the shipment. I've been real happy with what I have seen so far, and think these would be a great option to the current options.


Who's in?
List is $693 without shipping

@Mikey914

That one looks like a 2.0L.
Are both 2.0 and 1.7 - 1.8 planned? No 75-76 types?

I'm looking for a VS one for my '67 bus, but if you do a deal with Ben I'd likely be interested in a /6 muffler.

MT (owner of Vintage Speed) made the first one you see here for me and then I suggested there might be a wider market for them. Hence, the first is a 2.0-litre type but what MT was asking is if anyone has a stock 1.7 muffler in good condition that he can use as a pattern for measurements etc. Knowing MT, he'll look to widen the range eventually – if you check his range of VW mufflers, you'll see what I mean.

Best thing is to drop him an e-mail: shop@vintagespeed.com.tw. or call +886 4 2359 2422 - or message through the Vintage Speed Facebook page

I would rather support Ben and I hope 914 Rubber and Ben can get together on this and make it happen. Ben's products are top drawer and he stands behind his work. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

For me, looks are important but how it sounds and performs are key. It would help if you could post more details on performance. These look quite exquisite, very jewel like especially the exhaust ports. A sound sample would absolutely help, as the note is pretty key. At least for me it is - exhausts have such a distinct tone that it is hard to spend that kind of money without hearing them via a video sample.

I have two of Ben’s stainless mufflers - a single pipe outlet and his dual pipe GT version, plus his flat six header/heat exchangers. They are wonderfully crafted, with beautiful welds, and they really look the business.

I am looking forward to hear how Ben’s headers and single pipe version perform on my 2.7 twin plug, but that is a ways off as the restoration is on a slower track for a few months, and I have yet to hear the sound of the single pipe exhaust.

I did put 1600 miles in four days (road trip) on his GT dual pipe muffler on my injected 3.2 car and it is LOUD, probably too much so for me for the street, but would work fine for the track and really shrieks at full throttle (in a good way for the track, but less so when Officer friendly is nearby). I understand the latest GT versions may have been revised since mine was made and may be quieter with less drone in the 2500-4500 rpm range.

For the street, at least for my tastes, I love the tone of the Dansk mufflers which have a nice growl. I only wish the Dansk versions looked as nice as the Vintage or Ben’s mufflers, and for the price Ben offers these on the forum, it is hard to pay retail for a Dansk when for the same $$ you can get stainless. Plus, Ben has stepped up in support of the 914 community in many other projects, like his oil tanks and lines, and engine tins. I like supporting those kind of guys.

It sounds like the Vintage GB deal would only be for the four cylinder cars in any event.

What exactly are you planning to bring in? They list six different mufflers for 914.
Not much info on any of them.
They have a chart on the site about sound but dont say how it relates to any of the 914 models.
By personal vote is working with Ben and a stock location exit. I hate the shin ripper pipes. They get grounded out on 914's when you transition to a angle like entering a driveway.

Doesn’t look like they have a /6 option unless you go with the full headers for an early 911, and my they are pricey!. They should do a version with just the muffler only.

I will say, their exhaust ports/pipes on the end of the muffler look nice - I like how they are internally beveled.

Ben has already produced a 2.0L 914/4 stainless exhaust. Ready to roll. I purchased the first one. A hand crafted work of art.

Top notch build quality and is hand weld TIG which is the gold standard for Stainless Exhuast fabrication.

We simply didn’t have the collaboration to go any other way. We had been approached by a potential new vendor and simply are trying to support these cars.

Ben and I are currently in conversation as to what we can do to help develop a relationship to support his products. And yes, there will be a GB as we try to help him to develop a product line, even making some of the flanges he will need to make them.

So yes we left this up as we have been working with this vendor. And yes if you really want one of these sign up, we need 25 to make it work., and in fairness we will see where it goes.
However, do look for an announcement for a GB we will do with Ben. We have been a supporter of his for quite some time, just need to work out a few things.
