Jack -- I replaced my center muffler with one from summitracing.com
(enter part number MPE-14468).  It's stainless steel dual in/out 2.25"
diameter.  Local muffler shop cut out the old and welded in the new.
They did a very clean install, though I think they renewed some of the
stainless piping too.   All mandrel bent.

Looks great, though it's rounder (less oval) than the OE muffler, so
there's a small giveup in ground clearance.  My car's lowered a bit, and
no problems unless I'm careless.  The setup also sounds great (very
close to stock, even w/ the cats gutted).

Total labor:  $100 and a six pack of Corona.
