FinLLY the muffler is bad

hey guys i was always afraid of this problem but yesterday suddenly the car started to sound like its has a diesel motor in it
well i took it to a near by shop and they checked it out and they told me that in my 93 400 e the part which is right after the cattellic converter has 2 big holes in it i called the dealer to get the prica on it they said the original one is one piece only but now i have to buy a 2 piece (coz its teh only one availabe) and the price they old me comes around 1000 bucks just in the parts
well i would really appreciate if u guys can let me know about my options and where can i get the cheaper parts for it
i know this is the best time to install a remus exaust system in my car but i m double minded
one more thing if i wanna go with the performance exaust system whats the difference between remus and supersprint which is better
i think i would stick to stock if i can get it way cheaper than the other one s
thanks in advance
mani

TimeVlave Manufacturing Company makes direct-fit OEM duplicate catalytic converters. They have advertised in The Star Magazine forever, and have a great reputation.

www.timevalve.com


In the March / April 2003 issue of the Star Magazine (which just arrived in the mail today), there is an advertiser that I haven't noticed before, but I'll post it here anyway and let you call them:

Borla East - Stainless Steel exhaust systems for Mercedes Benz Cars, standard steel exhaust systems, replacement catalytic converters, etc.

USMANDAR,

from what i recall, the supersprint is one of the quietest aftermarket exhausts available. are the holes in the "suitcase" resonator? you can just replace that with a straight through y-pipe just like timevalve makes. the local meineke quoted me less than $200 to make one (not stainless steel). any decent muffler shop can fabricate that for you as well. as you found out, the original is one piece and they will have to cut the pipes no matter what component you replace. just beware that it is the rear muffler that does most of the sound baffling. if you remove the center muffler there will be only a slight difference. when you replace the rear muffler with an aftermarket one it can get pretty loud!
