Performance Muffler?

All

Does anyone know where I can find a performance muffler for my 08 Forester? I do NOT want an aggressive sounding one but moderate is okay. I can't seem to find any! If anyone has an idea, please share!

@Christopher Lee we have a custom fabricated Magnaflow axle back on both our Foresters. The sound is mild, but it can roar on WOT!

Here's a link to my Member Journal write up: Magnaflow muffler & Wicked (brand) 3" stainless steel tip installed!

Thank you, I will be sure to check it out. I heard for this generation forester you have to pretty much have it custom made. Thanks again

I believe there are bolt on axle back systems you can buy, but they will be expensive & may be louder than you're looking for.

If you shop around, you should be able to find a local muffler shop that can fabricate an axle back for a reasonable price, as they will have the parts in stock.

@2.5x_sleeper So I went ahead and ordered the same MagnaFlow muffler and got a tip to go with it. I will let you know how I make out. Thanks

@Christopher Lee most muffler shops those Magnaflow 11255 mufflers as a stock item. The same muffler you can buy on-line, but not in a highly polished look, so they cost less. Besides, you'll want to paint it with Rust-Oleum B-B-Q black. You might save money if you get the muffler at the shop that fabricates the axle back for you.
