Let's hear some different replacements and model #'s and where to get them. Been a while since I've looked into stock replacements so I want to hear some opinions. I think the Spintech will sound the best, but am open to options. This is for my girlfriend's Formula and I am trying to help her out. Also is there a place to still buy C6 exhaust tips at? I haven't seen them on eBay or any threads on here.


Let me know guys and thank you for the help.

I have the Spintech muffler and I like the sound a lot. It's similar to stock but a bit louder. It's also slightly larger than the stock can but it does fit in the same location without modification.

Have you contacted spintech? I believe I bought mine for my L67 swap directly from them.

if it was me i would go this route

some people are who they are and will not spend the money.

i have always wondered how a small catalytic converter high flow of course with a resonator in between the muffler and cat will sound?

I had a regular Ocelot system from the Fiero Store.
It had a little more rumble than the stock system. (It sounded amazing with a cammed 3.4, especially without a cat.)

The fit was not perfect, but workable.

I bought the 311SC model. 2" inlet, 2" dual outlet. I think the mufflers are the same even for the 88 model but I am not positive.

For the best easiest install & performance increase use the Dynomax super turbo ##17730,,this muffler is a tight fit, but easy mounting

this is single outlet,nice sound quiet at idle & with police car next to you ,but has good sound at higher RPM

when you cut the old muffler off ,saw or cut as close to muffler as possible,, welds can be filed, cut down later
it is easier to mount your new muffler the more pipe length you have ..
the borla is best for increase horse power with 2 outlet,but can not find correct part number,most expensive.
mufflers can be mounted using hardware store L brackets,T brackets & turnbuckles mounted to the stock
locations often using some of the old brackets
always mount your muffler at the stock rear location ,mounting where the cat went hurts power & MPG
think about the way you will mount your new muffler & use the springs where possible
anytime I install a new part ,, I try to eliminate all possible parts to save weight

when possible always port the stock exhaust manifolds they have serious blockage,, it can be a real chore if you break some bolts /studs,how ever!! ,this is one of the most needed Fiero modifications,increase HP, better MPG ,runs cooler
