    That doesn't look right. Bottom one looks like it could be a Boss. Can't tell from the side. The inner tip is concentric. Don't you have the stock ones?

    The top one looks like the FP 'touring' muffler with that rolled lip. Could be one of the stock ones like GT/CS.

    Those pictures are reversed.
    The lower photo is the Boss muffler, judging only by the tip. BTW--the Boss mufflers are V6 mufflers w/ the added tip (hence "dual tip" comment by Grant earlier).

    Thanks, I am away from my car till Monday... Would the GT muffler be any quieter?? Or are the bodies pretty much the same. One side of mine got the tip badly bent out of shape in my trip to the tire wall, and I was offered a set of GT mufflers for a good price. I am working on a Laguna seca pipe thingy as well to get the sound down to 90db.

    The GT muffler will probably be LOUDER. The V6 muffler was used on our cars to keep things NHTSA compliant for noise when the side pipes were included.

    Looks like rolled tips, which wasn't what came on BOSS. Any shots down the tubes w/ the tips? Would be easy to tell.
