You may want to put a "wanted" ad in the Marketplace.  As was brought up
recently WRT to trannies, somebody doing a swap may have a used one in good
shape.  Granted it would be used and life left would be an unknown...but it
should be cheap, an exact fit, and it just may last a few years...

Subject: center muffler


Just got back from the Flowmaster approved muffler shop. No go. I had talked
to the factory, and on paper everthing seemed like it would work, although,
both shop and factory are not at all familiar with these cars. The dual
in/out 70 series, would be the choice, as it is the quietest of the bunch.
But it is too long, (although the 50 series is shorter), and too thick. The
main problem is that on the right side top, the stock muffler has a large
indentation that barely clears a brace on the car. The Flowmaster would ride
too close to the ground. The best the shop could come up with, was
installing 2 small glass packs, which they say won't do much, or replace the
center muffler with straight pipes; using only the rear muffler. The rear
looks like it's on the way out, too.
What has anyone else done? The only thing in the Knowledge base not about a
200, and a general search brings up 4000 mufflers. Everyone running stock at
$775.00 plus labor?
Thanks for checking, though. 'Certainly was promising.
