I guys
a few weeks ago i buy from CIP1a a C13-3439 - EMPI - QUIET PACK EXHAUST SYSTEM - BUS 72-74 & 1979 ONLY / VANAGON 80-83

and I think it's noisy (no exhaust leak)did the stock muffler more quiet

It's waay loud to me after I put one on for a few months til I found the EMP stainless steel 4 into 1 which is quieter but not as quiet as a stock muffler

I used an Ernst muffler, the sound is very reasonable

Might check for holes..

My Empi T-Bird copy had a hole right in the very middle of the collector.

Stuff a rag in the pipe when it's running and climb under.
Any leaks will become obvious if you look closely.
