Mufflex mufflex mufflex!!!!!! So worth it! Save $300+ and spend it on something else. Kit fits perfectly and is high quality. Tips look amazing everybody loves them and the best part is still that you can spend the multiple hundreds saved on other car parts! Mufflex trust me.

Re: borla atak or mufflex help!

Holy crap...just tried to install the mufflex kit. All was smooth until you try and put the tip on. No way it is supposed to slide on and make adjustments. I had to pound it on with a rubber mallet it was so tight I couldn't even turn it. Both sides are the same. So...I'm taking the tips and bypass to an exhaust shop to expand the tip a little to be able to slide it right on and make proper adjustments. Did any have this issue? On a bright note. It sounds AMAZING!!!!!!! if it weren't for the sound I would be a little upset that it didn't fit together well. Thanks guys.

Wow, that tight of a fit huh? I'm dropping my tips off to get ceramic coated on Saturday. He said it would be about a week to a week and a half turn-around time. Now the waiting game...

Re: borla atak or mufflex help!

I will post up pics later, but first impressions now that the mufflex has been powder coated is...
-fitment is not great at all. The passenger side tip will slide on as far as I want to be flush with the rear valance. looks perfect! The drivers side only slides on so far and sticks out about 1.5 inches. Not terrible look but it would be so much better to have it flush. So the passenger side has to be moved out obviously to meet up the drivers side.
-The tips sit quite low and are not tucked up into the factory cut out, drivers side is worse than the passenger. (dont know why the passenger side fits better overall)
-The most important part...THE SOUND...Absolutely perfect!!!!!! Zero drone, start up and idle is perfect! Driving is great too, not too loud, but when you get on it now it sounds like it is supposed to.
overall happy with the system, and I need to spend some time messing around with the fitment. I will have to modify some things to make it fit better and didnt want to have to do that but it was worth the sound and to save more than half the price of borla helped. Thanks for the help here!

Re: borla atak or mufflex help!

Put mine on yesterday. I feel about the same. There is a guide/bump on the factory exhaust on the driver's side that the Mufflex runs into, which make the exhust stick out a bit. No choice but to have the passenger side match.

I'd MUCH prefer it flush.

Might see if I can get the tips cut an inch on both sides to see if that would allow me to slide them on a bit further.

Re: borla atak or mufflex help!

Hey guys ,

I love the mufflex sound but im not a fan of their tips . Could i expect the same sound by just having my exhaust shop delete the rear mufflers and straight pipe to the factory tips ?
