The guy at the shop told me this would fit so I bought it , when I go to pick up my car he says the hangers line up but the elbow from the inlet doesn't line up so it won't work . . . Can't you just cut it ? Apparently it's for a 01-05 Camry but the guy told me it fits an eclipse or rsx lol .

Your mechanic sucks if he couldn't mount that.

And if he said it would fit, and it doesn't, that's on him. If he's got no loyalty to him, don't be doing him any favours. Plenty of mom and pop places will be happy to have your business.

Ya it makes me question what he said about the spacers not fitting . Now that they broke it loose I'm gonna see for myself and if that's true I'm sure the J shape fouler will make it work . And definitely gonna take that muffler to another shop asap . Doesn't make any sense , if he didn't wanna do it why not just say that right ? I said if this muffler "doesn't fit" can you order me one in that does ? And he literally said " we don't do that here" (Budget Brake and MUFFLER) lol . All he did was cut the 3rd cat out for $75 . Oh and on top of all that I asked for my keys and he just sat there texting and said there in the car , the car was up on the hoist still , literally had to lower it and back it down myself while they watched lol . Definitely has to be a liability !

Yeah, that's not cool at all. Don't go back there again. It's one thing to have the customer drive on or off. It's another when they're making you lower it too

Lmao , I just can't understand why he would tell me to buy the muffler because it fit , then tell me it won't work and can't order me one that will lol . When I asked how much the bill was he just made up a number and then said they didn't have any change so lowered the price by $15 , no receipt , no paperwork . Kinda sketched out now . Nothing's rattling or fallen off yet . Should be interesting to see when I get it on a hoist Tuesday . Hopefully another shop will be putting this muffler on tomorrow . I don't think I mentioned the companies name buts it's a large Canadian franchise that does brakes and mufflers on a budget 😉

I'd say Factory Muffler, but they are a huge rip off lol. No way they'd do a cat delete $75 around me.

Doubt it would be a Midas... Too sketchy for them.

But I'm surprised any franchisee did it. That's definitely why it was cash deal no receipt though

Budget Brake and Muffler was the place . My good friend from highschool has a gorgeous Vette , Mustang , Camaro , Charger and a few big trucks and said his buddy owned it and does all of his vehicles so figured it would be alright . Not so much ! The original plan was to have him install headers until RRE stopped correspondence with me , and for that he quoted $600 . So thankfully I made it out of there for $75 . Just hope they didn't so something stupid removing that cat that's gonna cost me at the next place . Being told around $300 to have this Megan Racing muffler installed , kinda hoping not as that's twice what I paid for the muffler lol
