For Sale: Top Speed Pro/Che Muffler

Up for sale is a slightly used Top Speed Pro muffler. Basically, I put it on the car and wasn't happy with the sound but didn't get to take it off until a couple of days later. So it was used for maybe 100 miles altogether. When it was shipped to me, it already had a few scratches and it got scratched some more during the installation/removal process. Also, the chrome finish is peeling off in some places, and I honestly don't know why. Since it's just sitting around, I figured it would be better in someone else's hands. Considering the used condition, I'm only asking $200 plus shipping (preferably through Paypal). For anyone interested in getting the sound of the top speed muffler and isn't worried about cosmetic damage, here's your opportunity to get it a bit cheaper. For those interested, please send me a PM.
EDIT: The muffler is sold. Thanks for all the interest!



The tips look fine:


But you can see the chrome peeling away here:


and here:





None of the missing chrome is visible once installed on the car.

$200 will be a nice start on saving up for the Fab Speed. Reading this makes me feel like i'm making the right decision holding out myself.

I have the Che and it sounds great! The Fabspeed, from what I have read, has the same amount of cabin resonance/drone at 2-3k rpm. Why spend more?

No it is not. You really need to run it way more than 100 miles. As the carbon builds, the sound becomes better. Also, using better clamps helps to decrease any drone. I have the cat bypass pipes which is a must IMO. I do not have any significant drone with mine. I have now had it on my car for a year and 5 months and am still very happy with it

You're spending 10x what the Che costs for cabin drone!

I have not heard/read about much drone with the fabspeed. I'm not looking to avoid drone im looking for the best sound possible. You don't think the Fabspeed sounds much better? Damn you all for making me question myself.

I will say that it sounded nice, especially on throttle and in higher rpms. But the drone was a little bit more than I could handle on a daily basis, and this is my daily driver. If it weren't my only means of transportation, I could probably deal with it. I'd probably even like it.

Honestly, I hated the exhaust at first. I thought, "What have I done?!" I gave it some time, tracked down some leaks, and bought better clamps. Now, I honestly don't hear the drone anymore.

I see that a lot of people who don't have drone anymore also have secondary cat deletes, so maybe that was my problem. Those clamps look perfect. Either way, I've already decided to get a Fister muffler once I get this one off my hands. They're a little more money and maybe not as loud, but I think it'll be closer to the sound I was originally aiming for.
