    Default Anyone replace the muffler on their Chrysler 300m? What did you use?

    I've been looking into various brands (Walker, Magnaflow, Flowmaster,
    etc) and can't really find anything made with stainless steel that
    matches the dimensions of the factory OEM muffler.

    The 300m has a muffler AND a resonator under the rear of the car. The
    tail-pipe comes out the resonator (which looks like a muffler but
    apparently isin't).

    The original muffler shell measures 18" long, 12" wide and 6" high (oval
    profile).

    I can find some aftermarket stainless mufflers that are 18" long, but
    their oval profile seems to be quite a bit smaller (5" by 8" for
    example).

    For non-stainless types (aluminized) the Walker 21375 seems to be a good
    match - but I'd rather replace it with another stainless steel one if I
    can find it.

    Any ideas?

    Comments?

    Unless you're doing an exact MoPar replacement then as long as the
    lengths are correct you shouldn't be concerned. I've not seen any
    performance exhaust mufflers that are perfect matches.

    I replaced my factory exhaust system with a Borla SS set and the pipes
    were larger in diameter, there was no reasonator and the mufflers were
    smaller. But the double walled chrome tipes still came out the back
    where they should be. And there is no comparison to the tone
    improvement.

    My current muffler is still functional and intact, but when-ever the car
    has been put on a hoist, it's been pointed out that the muffler has many
    outer-shell perforations - none of which seems to be causing any changes
    to the exhaust sound.

    The only thing I want out of my exhaust system is for it to be quiet.

    I have no care or interest at all to try to achieve any sort of exhaust
    tone our particular sound. Just quiet. Urban life is noisey enough as
    it is.

    I'm wondering if the degree of "muffling" is proportional to muffler
    volume...

    You could wrap the muffler with metal tape like they sell in home
    depot for ac ducts (metal tape, not duct tape). My main worry with
    perforated muffler would be exhaust gases getting into the car.
