Exhaust question

Has anybody tried these?
It's almost time to replace mine and at $165 shipped, seems like a pretty good deal...unless they're crap!

If they are EMGO, then they are fine, but that company also sells MAC mufflers which I have found to be crap. The add does not seem to say which ones they are selling for that price.

Myself, I prefer to use SITO mufflers, but I am weird. I like the ceramic coating they use inside and feel that it helps with cutting back on the rusting from the inside out. But, they are a bit more expensive. I got a set last year for $368 delivered to my door. Fit perfectly, looks and sounds like stock.

The Emgo mufflers are very nice; they fit perfectly and sound like stock. The manufacturer has a bad habit of putting damaged mufflers in a box, though, and you won't know what you're getting until you open said box. Ask your vendor to inspect them before shipping.

In all fairness, other manufacturers are pulling the same trick. It's all a part of the steady decline of quality control.
