We are very proud to offer our 100% USA-made stainless steel exhaust components for Vanagon. Quality, affordability, and longevity with a lifetime warranty.
This muffler is an all stainless steel, free flowing, straight-through design that improves exhaust flow while delivering a smooth, mellow exhaust note. Also, it is a full 4lbs lighter than the OEM muffler!
Direct fit for all 1986-91 2WD and 4WD. That's right—we designed this part to fit both 2WD and Syncro. In addition, we kept the flange positions in the same, exact factory locations. So this part is interchangable with the corresponding, original VW exhaust component. This allows you to replace your aging exhaust system with these stainless steel parts piece by piece, or all at once with our complete exhaust kit.
Materials note: This GoWesty stainless steel exhaust part will not stay shiny and aesthetically perfect—but it will last, and we value longevity over aesthetics. For the complete story on stainless steel metallurgy, please click here.
Related item: If you are planning to use this product in conjunction with our GoWesty-designed aftermarket stainless muffler saddles you will also need a pair of aluminum shims sold separately here.
Due to the slightly smaller diameter of this muffler as compared to the OEM muffler, you will need a pair of our aluminum shims if you plan to re-use your original OEM muffler saddles. If you are planning on replacing your original muffler saddles with our stainless steel saddles, this muffler will be a direct fit. No shims required. You can also buy a complete muffler and saddle bundle to save a few bucks. Nice!
Every stainless exhaust part we offer comes with a limited lifetime warranty. The part is warranted against structural failure for life (for the original purchaser).
