i as looking at these mufflers and was not sure of the length

4" Outlet Tip and 2.5" Inlet Tip
19"L x 5"W x 5"H
2.5" Inlet Tip Length
3.5" Outlet Tip Length
does that mean that the total length of the muffler is 19 inch or 22.5???

The Body is 19", total length is 19" + input + output lengths, so according to the 19" + 2.5" + 3.5" = 25" total length.

I'm assuming this is a round body muffler since the H and W are the same. I've never seen a sqaure body muffler...lol

im thinking that most mufflers are around 20 or so and that the length 19 plus the tip length of 3.5 gives a total of 22.5 which sound better to me.

My stock muffler was almost 30 inches long from tip to base. It was huge. My turbo muffler is 20" with a 4" wide and 3.5" long tip.

The muffler tech will just need to extend the muffler with extra tubing to match the orginally length.

5 inches wide isn't very big. I think mine is almost 10" wide. If it's any smaller, it won't look right.

If you are looking on ebay for a muffler, do a search for a Mustang turbo muffler, it should pull up the same one I have. I only paid $38 for mine.

I thought it would be too, but it's pretty big. I have the exact same one. I'm going to try and find pic to post.

Venom has the same turbo muffler too. See if his photos are laying around here.

Yeah, but I never put it in. I love the deep throaty sound. I don't care that it's too loud.

I want to up grade the resonator to a flow master. It will make the engine sound much deeper, so it will sound like a V8. A friend of mine did that to his Mustang V6. I thought it was a GT, but it isn't. It sounded just like a V8 GT.
