Yeah, they're the same. I ordered the Manzo and it came in a M2 box.

Did you get it from eBay? From which seller?

Yes, and I don't remember. Most of the automotive sellers on eBay are just drop shippers nowadays, so I doubt it matters in the least.

I bought a set of M2's (Manzo's) a couple of years ago from an eBay seller. I believe it was an eBay seller although one shop carried the same model and part number locally.

I love them. No fart can sound. It's not too loud but is an aggressive exhaust system compared to what most OEMs put on their cars. More of a "tuned" sound. There is some bass in tunnels and overpasses but it's just enough bass mixed with other frequencies.

Compared to the majority of exhaust systems available for the SC they are not as prone to being overkill on NA cars where there is tremendous booming bass. Turbos tend to better compliment many other SC exhausts.

I'd put the M2/Manzo, Borla and... the one particular mild Tanabe dual system in the same general grouping of choices and style.

But I like the M2 best of those three.

My M2 arrived. Hopefully, the weather will cooperate so I can get it installed.

They're super easy to install. I think I had both done in less than half an hour, just propping it up with my knee while reaching under the car un-jacked.

Awesome, I was looking at those for my 400, cant beat it for the price.. The best part is the weight reduction, the stockers are ridiculous!

Hopefully your bolts on stock mufflers are not to corroded.....I wasnt able to get them off so ended up removing whole exhaust from cat back.....then decided to ditch the stock exhaust and go full 3"

Good luck and post pics up when you get them installed

^ I think I might have sprayed my bolts ahead of time with PB Blaster. They came out easily, although this area isn't known for road salts. A breaker bar should be able to tear them apart (literally) even if rusted, though. What's the worst that can happen...

Aside from the rust, looks like mine has a spot welded around the bolts.

I would just use a saw zaw and cut it off right in between the flanges and get new SS bolts and nuts...

Default M2 installed

I brought it to a shop to have it installed. I have one of the bent pipe corrected so it is aligned now.
