What’s the right exhaust note for your Bugeye (or any vintage sportscar?) This is something we think about often. We like a vintage “ANSA” sound that’s loud but not offensive or too loud for the neighbors.
Until now, lots of people used a generic twin-tipped muffler made by a company called Pacesetter. You can find them online from multiple vendors, marketed for Sprites and other British cars. The problem is that this muffler is too loud and just doesn’t fit. It’s too long and hits you in the ankles if you walk behind the car. And when you get on the gas, it can be heard across town, which was fine for me in high school, but now I am more concerned it will get me arrested. So we have two better alternatives at bugeyeguyparts.com, so you too can enjoy a nice note that won’t won’t wake up the dog a half-mile before you turn down your street.
Our sport muffler is quiet and still sounds quite pleasant and sporty. This is the right choice is you want to save money and you like a single exit pipe. Our twin tipped muffler is extremely sexy, with slender stainless tips, and looks just as good standing still as when all 43 horsepower is flowing through it. We custom made this product so it would fit and also sound great.
Check out the video below to hear these mufflers, and click below to order them from our catalog, or, when you buy your Bugeye from us, we can build the right exhaust note into your new classic. Note: all mufflers will require some cutting, welding and bending to complete your installation, depending on which center pipe you have in your car. Any exhaust shop can help!
