Bought mine about a year ago. still in the basement. Get this. When I looked at my stock muffler on my Essex, the arrow is pointing back toward the engine. Think it's on backwards? Came from the factory like that.

Read this test it is one that i know is independant
Filtration Testing for Amsoil, K&N, Napa, Jackson Racing, Baldwin, and Mazda air filters on a Miata
And that test definately shows that the K&N let much more dirt through. The Amsoil one was worse, and harder to service.

That is a very old test using the old oiled Amsoil foam filter that was replaced 7 years ago by the dry Amsoil synthetic nanofiber filter which outperformed all the other filters in this independent test GM Truck Central Air Filter Testing Study .

Kind of like belly buttons - innies & outies. We went from mufflers to the other end, air filters in this posting.

DM, My exhaust was 5 inches on both ends so the 5050 was the size I needed. You can get adapters to increase the size for 4 to 5 but if your tail pipe is 4 inches I don't see a benefit to using the 5050.

Not to hi-jack the thread, but I just replaced the muffler in our MH. Since no one in Alaska had what I needed, I ended up getting mine from Summit Racing. 4' inlet/outlet with band clamps delivered to Alaska for $276. Had it in two days. the old one was 'shot' and needed to be replaced. It was an easy swap out, done in about 45 minutes.

Mine was 4 in and 5 out on the original Cat muffler. I put on a XL5050 just to eliminate all back pressure. I used a 4 to 5 inch adapter to go into the muffler from the turbo side. A bit loud but no back pressure and low exhaust gas temps.

I know just going to a straight pipe has also been suggested or discussed in some of the threads. The 5050 is a straight through but little doo dads sticking into the air flow - not much more than a straight pipe.

My stock muffler was 4 in and 4 out. I installed the 5050XL 5 inch in and out with
adapters. Very little increase in noise the biggest change was the exhaust temps
came way down followed by increased response of the throttle.
